House Speaker Backs Obama on Military Action in Syria
John Boehner, Speaker of the US House of Representatives, has endorsed President Barack Obama’s call for military action in Syria.
Boehner said following a meeting at the White House that he intended to support Obama’s plan for limited strikes against the regime of Bashar Assad in Syria.
"I am going to support the president's call for action,” he said, as cited by NBC News.
"I believe my colleagues should support this call for action."
Representative Eric Cantor of Virginia, the No. 2 House Republican, quickly joined Boehner to say he also backed Obama.
Obama and Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. summoned Boehner and other Republican and Democratic leaders to the White House on Tuesday as they intensified their push for Congressional approval of an attack on Syria.

I greet the Americans with a nice piece of music and dance. It is for them. That is how I express my understanding on the USA’’s policy regarding Syria.
That is the peace. Even if you do not like it listen to it. It will help you.
How and why?? I will explain with an anecdote.
“A doctor prescribed to his patient to go to make mud baths in Pomorie (town in Bulgaria).
The patient asked. But doctor will it really help me??
The doctor thought deeply and said. No!! but it will make you familiar with the smell of the earth”.
So I will not elaborate how more respectable are the English.. Because in front of the prospect of having the mother of their king marring and declaring to be a Muslim… they killed her.
The Americans on the other hand did not even understand that their president is a Muslim. Nor they elaborated on the thought how no one from nowhere came to their country and became a president???? He must have had very powerful friends!!
