Obama Wants To Save Lives By Killing People?

WW3 UPDATE - Obama Considers Limited Military Action (So, He Wants To Save Lives By Killing People?)

On Friday, President Obama said that he is still undecided on whether or not to implement a strike on Syria. An incident last week near Damascus involving chemical weapons sparked fears of the potential US involvement in the Syrian civil war. On Friday Secretary of State John Kerry affirmed that President Bashar al-Assad used chemical agents to kill more than 1,000 people. International support for a strike in Syria has been dwindling, but the US is prepared to go it alone if need be.
