(NBC News) The White House is moving closer toward using force to punish Syria for allegedly using chemical weapons on its own people.

Secretary of State John Kerry made the case for actions against Syria during a statement from the White House.

"We know the American people are tired of war, I am too, but fatigue does not absolve us of our responsibility," Kerry said.
