SIOUX FALLS, SD -
Rhetoric over possible US military action in Syria is heating up in Washington.
More than 170 members of the US house are asking President Obama for a Congressional Resolution allowing weapons strikes on Syria.
This comes after the President and House Speaker John Boehner met about the issue today.
The United Nations Secretary General is asking the US and its allies to wait until UN investigators have finished their report on alleged chemical weapons use by the Syrian Government before any strike.
Two of South Dakota's congress members say they'd like to know the mission objectives, before the President takes any action.
"There are some times when you have to respond quickly. There's a sense of urgency in certain situations. I don't think there is any particular urgency with this. We're going to respond, we're going to send a message, and that can certainly be done," Sen. John Thune said.
"If you look at the last time we've gotten engaged in wars, they've drug on for years and decades and the American public and South Dakotans are tired and weary of war," Rep. Kristi Noem said.
We also reached out to Senator Tim Johnson for his reaction, but we didn't get a response.
