President Obama says military action will be limited and no ground forces will be deployed
“I am deeply aware of the risks of any military action, no matter what limits we place on it,” said President Obama. “I want the American people to know that the use of force is not our first choice and it’s not a choice I make lightly. But we cannot stand idly by when a tyrant tells his people that there will be no mercy. “
