President Obama will make his case to the american public tonight (Tue) on why he feels the threat of military action is necessary to prevent the Assad regime from using more chemical weapons against its citizens.

 

"Today after attending a classified briefing to listen very carefully to top adminsitration officials make their case in person -- they did not persuade me that the United States has a clear or achievable objective in Syria that can only be obtained thorugh military force.  And they have not made the case that dragging America into a civil war in the middle east is in  our national security interests.  Absent a direct threat to the United States or our allies and a clear goal and definition of victoy, I must oppose using military force in Syria.

 

The Unitd States shoud dwork with the international community to continue to pressure the Assad regime through sanctions and other diplomatic means.  And we should make it clear that a direct threat to the United States or our allies in the region will not be tolerated.  But at this time, I believe that using military force in Syria will make the situation in the middle east worse, not better and will not make our country safer."

 

President Obama will address the nation Tuesday night at 6 P.M.
