Lebanon's Syrian refugees support military strike

Children of Syrian refugees play in Lebanon's northern city of Tripoli. As the world awaits an international response after last week's week's deadly chemical attacks, some refugees here say they would support a military strike on their home country. This man says such an attack would end President Bashar al-Assad's regime within a month. Another says they need the conflict to end soon to prevent more deaths. (SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) SYRIAN REFUGEE, ABOU ASSEM, SAYING: "We want salvation on this issue. You know what that means? People here in Lebanon, the ones we came to, the people here don't have the capabilities, they are dying, and we came to die with those who are dying. We want salvation from this thing. Right, it is a strike but we want salvation." U.S. President Barack Obama made the case on Wednesday for a limited military strike against Syria. But there are growing signs that any timeline for this will be complicated by his administration
