Action is not time sensitive, Obama said. But even though he's convinced striking Syria will help deter Syria's government from using chemical weapons in the future, he's made a second decision -- to seek authorization from Congress. The ickiest Congress ever might be an advantage in this situation, for those of us who don't want to see any military action.
Nice move by Obama to throw the ball in Congress's court. They were too busy playing in the sandbox. Now Obama's welcomed them to behave like adults and make a decision.
