Obama supported the military intervention in Syria
United States, August 31, 2013
Despite the recess of the legislature, Barack Obama has already expressed his support for military intervention in Syria, but said that the Congress has to decide.
For the U.S. government, the government of Bashar Al Assad launched chemical weapons and left 200 people dead in the city of Damascus. So he said that “the U.S. cannot turn a blind eye to such a horrific act.”
“I do not need congressional authorization to act on this, but I prefer to be issued because it has to do with what kind of country we are,” said Obama, who faces strong internal resistance to war.
For the time is now opened a waiting period and internal and international consultation before making decisions.
“The Assad regime recognized that a chemical attack had occurred. Altogether more than a thousand people were killed, several hundred were children. All attacked by their own government,” Obama justified in his speech.
And he said “in a world with many dangers this threat must be eliminated. We’re ready to attack whenever we want. Going to be effective tomorrow, in a week, in a month or whenever necessary”.
