On Saturday, President Barack Obama asked Congress to support a strike punishing Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime for the alleged use of chemical weapons.
Since the announcement, many Americans are speaking up either for or against the President's request.
We asked residents in Greenwich how they felt about possible military action in Syria.
Question - "How do you feel about the possibility of US military action in Syria?"
Steuart Cox who was visiting Greenwich said "I think somebody needs to do something about it, but I am a bit concerned about the likelyhood of the Western Nations going in without the authorization of the United Nations. The danger is they are going to make the same mistake they made going into Iraq and they will act without the authority of the international community."
Some members of the community felt as though they did not know enough information about the currentsituation.
Melinda Mendenhall of Greenwich said "I don't know the whole truth about it or all the details so I have to just trust that the right thing will be done."
Many residents felt as though some type of action needs to be taken.
"If you are going to find a way to retaliate the use of weapons of mass destruction that they are using, I agree that for some limited action needs to be taken but I don't agree with any land intervention in Syria." said one Greenwich resident who did not want to be named.
Ilene Eder said "They cannot go ahead and have nuclear weapons and chemical weapons and we were going to stand by and do nothing. On the other hand, especially because we don't have the support of a lot of the international countries, it is very hard for us to go in and it is a civil war. We cannot get so involved with every country and every countries problems."
Cox added, "No one would condone what he has done recently using nerve gas on his own population. Someone needs to do something about that otherwise it's going to get totally out of control."
