Obama administration presses for support on Syria strikes

(CNN) - The Obama administration will spend this week trying to persuade lawmakers at home and allies abroad that an attack on Syria is the appropriate response to the alleged use of poison gas by the regime of President Bashar al-Assad.

The White House's push comes after al-Assad once again raised the specter of an all-out regional war if the United States strikes.

    Fair is Fair: Nothing good comes out of this no matter the decision. What a mess.

    It's been a mess in that region for thousands of years. I suspect it will remain a mess for thousands of years to come. Nothing good ever comes out of conflicts in the Middle East ... no matter who the President of the United States is, was, or will be.
