Demonstrators protest during a rally against a possible US attack on Syria in response to alleged use of chemical weapons by the Assad government, at Pershing Square in Los Angeles on August 31, 2013. US President Barack Obama said Saturday he will ask the US Congress to authorize military action against Syria, lifting the threat of immediate strikes on President Bashar al-Assad's regime. Obama said he had decided he would go ahead and launch military action on Syria, but he believed it was important for American democracy to win the support of lawmakers. UPI/Jim Ruymen
