BRIDGEWATER,Va. (WHSV) -- Political scientists debate on what may or may not happen if the United States becomes involved with the crisis in Syria.

Dr. David McQuilkin said if the U.S. takes action against Syria, President Obama would be very limited in his action.

He said the President may only select certain targets.

McQuilkin said there are many groups inside Congress that are forcing the issue and wanting to get involved.

"I would suggest that Obama is playing a very skilled political game here. By forcing it into Congress and saying to Congress, you have to now legitimize this response. He is forcing Congress to take ownership of that what takes place," said McQuilkin

McQuilkin said members of Congress will discuss the matter and he isn't sure when Congress will take action.
