President Obama is not known for making rash decisions, but the American public would still like him to seek a second opinion before taking action against Syria. According to a poll published Friday by NBC News, 80 percent of Americans surveyed think Obama should get congressional approval before making any major military moves. Just one day ago, 26 members of Congress received a briefing from White House national-security advisers that linked Bashar al-Assad's regime to a chemical attack on Syrian civilians. Aside from the support of France, Obama currently seems to stand alone in his mission to strike back against Assad for crossing his "red line." The British Parliament has voted against military intervention.
