US Senate Delays Vote On Syria War

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has delayed a vote on using military force against Syria.

Faced with stiffening opposition from Republicans and skepticism from many Democrats, Reid said he would not rush the vote to begin considering the controversial use-of-force resolution.

He insisted he was not delaying action because of a lack of votes.

Reid said the delay could give senators more time to weigh the arguments of President Obama and other proponents of launching military strikes against forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

We have interviewed Musa Al-Gharib, a research fellow with Southwest Initiative for the ME Conflict based at the University of Arizona, on the issue.
