Obama in Pro-Strike Media Blitz
United States President Barack Obama has begun an intensive media campaign aimed at bringing the American public to support military intervention in Syria.
Recent polls have shown that more than 60% of Americans oppose U.S. military involvement in Syria, while just over 10% support it.
Six media interviews and one national address are part of Obama’s plan to explain why he thinks America must take action in the wake of chemical weapons attacks in Syria – and to argue that U.S. involvement would not end in another drawn-out campaign like those in Iraq and Afghanistan.
