Syrian president Bashar Al-Assad has denied he was behind the chemical weapons attack in Damascus, according to CBS News.
He told the CBS Face the Nation programme: "There has been no evidence that I used chemical weapons against my own people."
In an interview in Damascus, Assad said there was no conclusive evidence of a chemical attack.
Syria's rebels and Assad's soldiers agree on one thing. The military strike America is now preparing will change nothing and do no good.
As the threat of US strikes looms, people of Damascus wonder what missiles will achieve, and for whom.
