President said he will let Congress debate and vote on military action against the Middle Eastern country, after secretary of state says there is little doubt the regime launched a chemical weapons attack on insurgents.
President Barack Obama this weekend said he will let the U.S. congress decide on whether to attack Syria after an alleged chemical weapons attack by Syrian President Bashar Assad that killed hundreds of children and violated international rules of war.
"I am concerned that, unless the international community responds in a unified manner, the Assad regime will be emboldened to widen its use of chemical warfare and further destabilize the region and threaten us. That’s why I believe that, together with our international partners and Syria’s neighbors, a surgical and targeted air strike is needed as long as it is limited to degrading Syria’s chemical weapons capabilities and does not involve U.S. ground forces," he said.
Now is the time to tell Israel where you stand. Should he vote in favor of the Syria attack? Vote in our poll above and let us know in the comments.
