MIAMI, Sept. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- (Big Time Media/ SBS-MegaTV)--- This Tuesday, September 10, the President of the United States, Barack Obama, will give a televised address to the nation on the status of the conflict in Syria. MegaTV will be providing special prime time coverage starting at 8 p.m. (ET) / 7 p.m. (CT), with excellent simultaneous translation in Spanish, while at the same time, radio listeners in South Florida can hear the President's words on the radio at Z92.3FM on the dial. Should the country take part in a new military conflict?
Starting at 8 p.m. (ET) / 7 p.m. (CT), the leading news and opinion program on Hispanic television, "Ahora con Oscar Haza" [Right Now with Oscar Haza] will bring the message of President Barack Obama to the nation, followed by expert analysis and the reaction of democratic and republican politicians.
At a time when the country is debating whether or not it should enter into a new war, President Obama will attempt to persuade the people and Congress of the United States to accept his reasons for taking military action against Syria. The presumed use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime of Bashar al Assad constitutes "a threat to global peace and security," and merits "a strong response," said the chief executive in Saint Petersburg after the closing of the G20 summit.
According to a number of polls, a majority of the people of the U.S. are opposed to a new military adventure, worried about the repercussions this could have on the national economy and on the stability of the complex region of the Middle East.
The escalation in Syria took up a great deal of the G20 Summit. The leaders in attendance there were in agreement that chemical weapons had been used, and the majority believe that President Bashar al Assad was responsible, Obama affirmed.
"There are times where we have to make hard choices," the President noted, and gave assurances that he will continue to seek the support of Congress and international allies for a military strike on Syria.
