The G20 Summit wrapped up in Russia today.

The meeting of world leaders was supposed to focus on the global economy, but the Syrian crisis dominated much of the behind-the-scenes talk.

President Obama affirmed the US is prepared to go it alone in a military strike against Syria. He spent the last several days trying to drum up international support of the move.

The President held an un-scheduled meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. So far, France is the only major power at the summit publicly backing action against Syria.

Back in the States, dozens of lawmakers cut their vacations short to attend briefings. Many say they still do not know how they will vote on a resolution authorizing a military strike.

The President will address the nation on Tuesday.
