OBAMA SOUNDBITE 4


President Obama also answered objections by ordinary Americans, worried that the country will get entangled into another long war.


"My answer is simple: I will not put American boots on the ground in Syria. I will not pursue an open-ended action like Iraq or Afghanistan. I will not pursue a prolonged air campaign like Libya or Kosovo. This would be a targeted strike to achieve a clear objective: deterring the use of chemical weapons, and degrading Assad's capabilities."
