President Barack Obama this weekend said he will let the U.S. congress decide on whether to attack Syria after an alleged chemical weapons attack by Syrian President Bashar Assad that is reported to have killed more than 1,400 people and violated international rules of war.

As Americans are "weary of war," the president said in his Saturday address to the public that putting the decision in the hands of the people's representatives was more in line with the country's democratic ideals.

"I know that the country will be stronger if we take this course, and our actions will be even more effective," he said.

So as Congressional committees grill Secretary of State John Kerry and Congress prepares to vote on whether or not to strike Syria, how do you think your Congressman, Rep. Peter Roskam, should vote?

Now is the time to tell Roskam where you stand. Should he vote in favor of the Syria attack? Vote in our poll above and let us know in the comments.

i spent 30 years wearing af blue and there is no way we should attack syria. we do that and these nutjobs will do something in retaliation, when our allies support a joint action that is different. war is not fun and the hardest job i had was writing letters to families, major tom

Exactly right, Herc. Why have we not gone into Darfur and other places where their own people are slaughtered? Because they are no threat to our security and we have no interest there. Tom, I agree with you. These nuts will do whatever they can to martyr themselves. When they start attacking here, it gives obozo the excuse he needs to declare martial law and suspend elections. Lisa is well intended and I love her heart but we must choose our battles wisely.

I think Lisa's kids should go fight in Syria. Not mine though.

this area has been in turmoil since the beginning of time, the only common enemy they have is the usa and anyone that is our ally. try spending some time there getting shot at and then make a secision about using tactical weapons, both bad and good guys die.
