I think the “leaders” of congress who met with Obama assured him they’d cover for his ass and vote “no”. Mccain and Graham yelling for an “attack” is all smoke and mirrors.

US Republican Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham on Saturday said they could not support isolated military strikes on Syria that are not part of a bigger strategy.
“We cannot in good conscience support isolated military strikes in Syria that are not part of an overall strategy that can change the momentum on the battlefield, achieve the president’s stated goal of (Syrian President Bashar) Assad’s removal from power, and bring an end to this conflict, which is a growing threat to our national security interests,” they said in a statement.
