Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Many are speaking out tonight about the possibility of a US military strike on Syria.

President Obama said he will wait for congress to debate on the action. A vote is expected any day.

It is a surprising turn in the president's strategy to punish the Syrian regime for a chemical weapons attacks on Syrian civilians.

A local rally was held in Corpus Christi Saturday to gain support for Obama's decision for military action in Syria. It was held at the corner of SPID and Staples.  Our Anayeli Ruiz was live with reaction from demonstrators during 3 News at 6.
