In an address to the nation, Obama said the Syrian government was clearly responsible for the use of chemical weapons that killed more than 1,000 people last month.
He said the US would maintain the threat of force should diplomacy fail.
President Obama said he had long resisted calls for military action in Syria because he did not believe that force could solve the civil war.
However, he said he changed his mind after the alleged chemical weapons attack in the Damascus suburbs on August 21.
