WASHINGTON - Now that he's back from the G-20 summit in Europe, President Barack Obama is turning his attention to winning support from lawmakers and the public for limited military action against Syria.
   
In his weekly radio and Internet address, Obama says the United States "cannot turn a blind eye" to the grim images out of Syria of children allegedly killed in a chemical weapons attack by the Syrian government.
   
He'll have more to say in an address to the nation Tuesday evening. The next day, a key first vote is expected in the Senate over a resolution authorizing the "limited and specified use" of U.S. armed forces.
