Obama to address nation Tuesday on need for Syria military strike

Have to wait til after football is all over for the week of course.
Check it out:

President Obama said he will make his case for a military strike on Syria in an address to the nation on Tuesday.

The president announced his intention during a press conference Friday at the G-20 summit in St. Petersburg, Russia, where he warned that “the Assad regime’s brazen use of chemical weapons isn’t just a Syrian tragedy.”

“Failing to respond to this breach of this international norm would send a signal to rogue nations, authoritarian regimes and terrorist organizations that they can develop and use weapons of mass destruction and not pay a consequence,” Obama said. “And that’s not the world that we want to live in.”

Obama’s decision to address the country from the Oval Office underscores concerns that the administration is losing ground in its bid to secure congressional approval for a vote.
