US President Barack Obama takes to the broadcast airwaves tonight to speak to the American people about his plans to deal with Syria. This is on the heels of his request for Congress to authorize the use of military force.

However, Russian President Vladimir Putin has sounded a cautious and fast-moving plan for a diplomatic solution which calls on Syria to give up its chemical weapons.

Obama's speech, which is scheduled for 9 p.m. tonight should shed some light on whether The United States of America is headed toward a military strike, with or without congressional approval.
