WASHINGTON – In his weekly address, President Obama again made the case for limited and targeted military action to hold the Assad regime accountable for its violation of international norms prohibiting the use of chemical weapons.

According to the White House, the President “realizes the American people are weary after a decade of war, which is why U.S. action would not include U.S. boots on the ground.”

The President has put forward a proposed authorization that is focused on his objectives – preventing and deterring the use and proliferation of chemical weapons (CW) within, to, or from Syria, degrading the Assad regime’s capacity to carry out future CW attacks, and deterring this behavior in others who would otherwise feel emboldened to use such weapons.

“Almost three weeks ago in Syria, more than 1,000 innocent people – including hundreds of children – were murdered in the worst chemical weapons attack of the 21st century,” the President said. “And the United States has presented a powerful case to the world that the Syrian government was responsible for this horrific attack on its own people.

“What we’re talking about is not an open-ended intervention. This would not be another Iraq or Afghanistan. There would be no American boots on the ground. Any action we take would be limited, both in time and scope – designed to deter the Syrian government from gassing its own people again and degrade its ability to do so.”
