A trio of congressional Republicans on Sunday expressed varying degrees of skepticism that Congress will approve using military force against the Syrian government, a day after President Obama said he will seek the approval of lawmakers before acting.

"I don't think they will [approve]," Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.), the ranking Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, said on "Fox News Sunday." Inhofe added that the bigger picture in Syria is much more complicated than the one the Obama administration has painted.
