U.S. President Barack Obama says the chemical weapons attack on Syrians was “a direct attack on human dignity” and a “serious threat” to U.S. security.
That is why, Obama said Saturday in his weekly address, he has asked Congress to vote on authorizing the use of force in Syria.
The president said U.S. military action in Syria would not involve any “American boots on the ground.”
President Obama said American action in Syria would be “limited,” designed to deter the Syrian government from gassing its own people again and degrade Syria’s ability to do so.
