Celebs React To President Obama’s Request For Action Against Syria

Jason Marshall / August 31, 2013

This is a Labor Day Weekend destined for the history books.

Earlier today, President Obama announced that he thinks the United States should pursue military intervention against the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

In case you haven’t followed the story, Syria is in the midst of a civil war and the President is convinced that al-Assad has used chemical weapons against his opponents, something that’s against international law. Because of that, President Obama has formally asked Congress for permission to take action, but that won’t happen until at least September 9th.

While the world awaits that decision, Hollywood has already taken notice.

Although most celebrities have taken a light hearted approach to a very difficult to deal with situation, it’s refreshing to know that there is time to think of other things than movie premieres and night club brawls.
