Syrians refugees react to potential U.S. military strike

STORY This refugee camp in Jordan is home to more than 12,000 Syrians who fled their country's civil war. Many say they are disappointed with President Obama's decision to delay a military strike in Syria until after receiving Congressional approval. SOUNDBITE: (ARABIC) SYRIAN LIVING IN ZAATARI REFUGEE CAMP, GHAREEB SHHADEH, SAYING: "What we want from the American president is to put an end to (President) Bashar's (al-Assad's) actions that cross the red line, as soon as possible, and to respond to the wants of the Syrian people completely." The earliest a possible strike could happen is in a few weeks after Congress reconvenes on September 9th. SOUNDBITE: (ARABIC) SYRIAN LIVING IN ZAATARI REFUGEE CAMP, MOHAMMED FROM DERAA, SAYING: "The longer they wait, the more women and children are dying. Death tolls are always increasing." Meanwhile, thousands of protesters in Turkey filled the streets to celebrate their country's world peace day.
