Obama urges military action against Syria but will seek Congress' OK - CNN.com
Obama sent a letter to the heads of the House and Senate on Saturday night, hours after announcing that he believes military action against Syrian targets was the right step to take over the alleged use of chemical weapons.The proposed legislation from Obama asks Congress to approve the use of military force "to deter, disrupt, prevent and degrade the potential for future uses of chemical weapons or other weapons of mass destruction."It's a step that is set to turn an international crisis into a fierce domestic political battle.There are key questions looming over the debate: What did U.N. weapons inspectors find in Syria? What happens if Congress votes no? And how will the Syrian government react?
