To all who oppose US/European military action against Syria:

 

   We have reached a moment when the United States and some of its European
allies are threatening to rain more death and suffering down on Syria, and
when the vast majority of Americans have absolutely no political power to
stop these threats or to prevent attack. 

 

   It is apparent that the White House and the Congress are responding to
powers other than the American people.   Arguably the most powerful
influence in Washington is that of the major banks - Bank of America,
Capitol One, Chase, Citicorp, US Bancorp, Wells Fargo.  Here is a list of
the biggest  <http://www.infoplease.com/ipa/A0763206.html>
http://www.infoplease.com/ipa/A0763206.html   We believe that an attack on
Syria would not proceed without the approval of the heads of the major banks
and that defunding of these banks to stop US military action in Syria is an
appropriate response that addresses basic power relationships related to
war.

  

   In the face of this, we urge that on Sept. 1, 2013 you begin to remove
your money from these largest banks and deposit it in a local credit union,
or if this is not possible, a smaller bank
<http://www.moveyourmoneyproject.org/> http://www.moveyourmoneyproject.org/
or in "Banco de Mattress".

 

  Below is an example of how banks are tied into US military adventures and
why our best strategy appears be to go directly where the money is.   

 

   The board of directors of Lockheed Martin has two members, ex-military
men,  who are officials in The Cohen Group,
<http://www.lockheedmartin.com/us/who-we-are/corporate-governance/board.html
>
http://www.lockheedmartin.com/us/who-we-are/corporate-governance/board.html
formed by ex-Defense Secretary William Cohen to "provide global business
consulting services and advice on tactical and strategic opportunities in
virtually every market".   The  Cohen Group started up TCG Financial
Partners, which Mr. Cohen describes as "a merchant banking entity.  As we
have done on the consulting side, we wanted to attract people of enormous
talent from the financial world.  We put together a team based in New York
and Washington.  It is headed up by Ed Carter, who spent more than 20 years
on Wall Street as head of the investment banking for Merrill Lynch, Deutsche
Bank and Bank of America.They are the financial experts and we are the
strategic experts."

  Mr. Cohen serves on boards of directors of various firms and groups that
give him connections to Bank of America, Cititgroup, American Express, CIT
Group, Lazard Ltd., Commercial International Bank S.A.E. (Egypt), the
National Bank of Kuwait, and other financial firms.  He is also connected to
major military contractors Raytheon, Boeing and Lockheed Martin.  He also
sits on the board of CBS.

 On August  22, 2013, Mr. Cohen appeared on MSNBC, with former US Senator
Richard Lugar, saying that the US finds itself in a situation in which it
must take military action against Syria.
