Obama: No Ground Troops, Air Campaign In Syria
by news


WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama is pledging that he won't deploy ground combat troops or wage a prolonged air campaign against Syria.

In his speech to the nation Tuesday seeking public support for a possible military strike against President Bashar Assad's government, the president also promised he would not pursue an open-ended military action.

Obama said he realized that many Americans were weary of military action after the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. He said the limitations he was imposing on the potential strike would ensure against the U.S. sliding down a slippery slope into another prolonged war.

Obama made his remarks as U.S. officials explore whether a Russian proposal to put Syria's chemical weapons under international control might work, and as the administration seeks congressional support for an attack.
