A new poll shows an overwhelming majority of Americans would like to see a possible intervention in Syria first approved by Congress.
Nearly 80% of Americans think President Obama should seek Congressional approval before taking any military action in Syria, according to a NBC News poll published on Friday.
Seventy-nine percent of respondents say they want the president to go to receive congressional approval before taking any action.
A vote in the British Parliament yesterday nixed that country's plans to join the US and others in a strike against Syria. Nevertheless the White House appears ready to strike despite any concerns. Syria's opposition leader says it's a moral responsibility. Going to Congress for a vote would be the Constitutional one; the US Congress hasn't declared a war since World War 2.
