Syria: Hands Off

Open Letter to Rep. Lois Capps:

In response to the Independent news article “Syria Vote Looms” dated September 5, 2013, that states you have not declared your position regarding attacking Syria, please try to keep the U.S. hands-off policy on Syria. Our interference in any way could be a disaster!
