Is The U.S. Going To War With Syria?

In Tuesday night's prime-time speech, President Obama said he's giving diplomacy a chance.

The majority of the American public (not to mention many in Congress) are adamantly against the United States going to war with Syria over that country’s use of chemical weapons against its people.

So when President Obama addressed the nation on Tuesday night in prime time in what was planned as a bid to win public approval for airstrikes against Syria’s military, many were surprised when he pivoted in a different direction.

“When dictators commit atrocities, they depend on the world to look the other way,” Obama said of Syrian president Bashar al-Assad. However, the president repeatedly noted that America is “not the world’s policeman,” that we cannot resolves someone else’s civil war for them and that he would not commit U.S. troops to the ground in Syria.
