President Obama is asking Congress to authorize military action against the Syrian regime in response to the alleged chemicals weapons attack.

Sunday morning,  Kentucky Senator Rand Paul says we fight when we have to fight, but he sees this decision on a more personal basis.

"My interpretation of the current Obama administration's policy, is they want to fight for stalemate, then they want to negotiate a settlement. They think that Assad has the upper hand now. They want to balance it out, but what I've told them is I'm not sending my son, your son, or anybody else son to fight for stalemate," Paul said.

Secretary of State John Kerry hit five of this morning's talk shows, saying samples collected from Syria prove chemical weapons were used in the country.
