US President Barack Obama, with US Vice President Joe Biden, speaks on Syria in the Rose Garden at the White House in Washington on August 31, 2013. Obama said Saturday he will ask the US Congress to authorize military action against Syria, lifting the threat of immediate strikes on President Bashar al-Assad's regime. Obama said he had decided he would go ahead and launch military action on Syria, but he believed it was important for American democracy to win the support of lawmakers.
