President Barack Obama is urging both sides of the aisle to continue talks over whether or not to order a military strike against Syria, he announced in a rare primetime address to the nation. He asked that a vote on the measure be postponed.
He reiterated his commitment to ordering a tactical military operation without putting armed forces boots on the ground.
How do you feel about what the President said?
In his speech, Obama said the United States has been the "anchor of global security" although it is "not [the] world's police, but US ideals, principals, national security [are] at stake in Syria,."
The President said "no one disputes" that chemical weapons were used to kill 1,400 men, women and children in Syria. He referred to video evidence of victims "foaming at the mouth ... and gasping for breath."
The Naval ships will remain in position as a means of applying pressure to Bashar Hafez al-Assad.
