Leaders of the US Senate's Foreign Relations Committee have agreed on a draft resolution for the use of military force in Syria, setting a 60-day limit on the intervention.
The document will be put before the full committee for a vote on Wednesday.
On Tuesday, Secretary of State John Kerry plead his case on why the US should launch limited attacks on Syria in retaliation for Pres. Bashar al-Assad's alleged use of chemical weapons on his own people. According to Kerry, not stepping in would only embolden other countries with weapons of mass destruction, and senators expressed their concerns that getting involved in Syria would only lead to another endless war in the Middle East.
