In an address to the nation on Tuesday night, President Obama talked about the complexities of the Syria crisis.  He discussed the reasons why he is for a targeted military strike on Syria. But, he also said he has asked Congress to postpone votes on Syria action to pursue a possible diplomatic solution.
