Hundreds of anti-war protesters carrying signs opposed to a military strike against Syria held a vocal demonstration Saturday at the White House, dpa reported.
Using bull horns and holding a large banner reading "No war on Syria," the protesters called on President Barack Obama not to enter another war.
The protesters decried the recent wars the United States has fought, particularly in Iraq and Afghanistan. Driving home that point, one poster read: "Endless war for the empire."
The demonstration was held as Obama prepared to speak on his deliberations over the US response to a poison gas attack in Syria last week.
