>> stay us for "good morning america." have a great friday. making news in america this morning -- summit showdown. the president meeting right now with world leaders, facing an uphill battle, getting support for a strike on syria. planned attack. the u.s. planning a broader attack on syrian targets. we're live in russia and washington. superman. while you were sleeping, the nfl season opens in spectacular fashion with a historic performance by peyton manning. and the new invention letting you surf the earth. a brand-new way to get around the golf course. good friday morning,
everyone. president obama returns to the u.s. today without the international support he had sought on syria. >> president obama and the chinese president met this morning, building on discussions the two had in june. but there was no agreement on syria. china remains firmly against a military option. >> and there was this 17-second exchange between mr. obama and russian president putin, where syria remains a source of tension. >> we have team coverage this morning from washington and russia. we begin with abc's kirit radia in st. petersburg. >> reporter: good morning. syria isn't supposed to be on the agenda at the g-20. but it's dominating discussions. world leaders remain divided on how to respond to syria's alleged use of chemical weapons. president obama continues to make his case for military action. the leaders of the g-20 met late into the night last night, eating dinner at nearly 2:00 a.m. but it seems they're no closer
to a consensus on syria. the g-20 countries are split down the middle whether to support president obama's call for military action. that would be a blow to the president, who during this trip, has tried to rally the world around his plans to strike syria. u.n. secretary-general ban ki-moon addressed the dinner, taking russia's side, that any military strike must be approved by the u.n. security council. this was the first time that mr. obama and president putin met face-to-face, since they canceled their summit. the two were all-smiles on the cameras. but remain far apart on syria. and president obama has his work cut out for him at home, as well. the white house is confident that congress will authorize to use force in syria. but it is by no means a sure thing. >> kirit, question for you. any sense of what russia would do if the u.s. goes ahead with the strike? >> reporter: right.
well, the one thing the russians have said they won't do is go to war over this. the foreign minister said they're not going to go to war with anybody over syria. one thing that president putin hinted they might do this week is continue an increased military support for syria. that's one thing they might do. but they have not said for sure. >> our thanks to kirit radia in russia for us. thank you. we want to get new details of a possible plan of attack in syria. abc news has learned that the u.s. is preparing for a broader bombardment than anticipated. abc's tahman bradley joining us from washington. good morning, tahman. >> reporter: good morning to you, john. that's right. one senior official told abc news, this military strike could do more to damage assad's regime in 48 hours than the rebels have done in the past 2 years of civil war. an air campaign, which would last at least two days, would likely include tomahawk cruise missiles, fired from the four navy destroyers in the eastern mediterranean. the ships loaded with 200
missiles. that in addition to an aerial bombardment of missiles and long-range bombs, fired by bombers. but this plan seems a lot more involved than what president obama suggested earlier this week. >> what we are envisioning is something limited. we send a shot across the bow saying, stop doing this. >> reporter: the president will keep making the case for a strike to the american people. senior aides say he is considering an address to the nation. diana and john? >> tahman bradley in washington. thank you for that. another bombshell in syria. iran reportedly ready to launch revenge attacks, should the u.s. attack syria. this morning's "wall street journal" says that intercepted message shows iran ordered militants in iraq to attack the u.s. embassy in baghdad, in the event of a strike. u.s. officials are worried about a hezbollah attack on the embassy in beirut. an arizona senator john mccain ran into a wall of opposition from his constituents against the u.s. taking any action in syria.
during a town hall meeting in phoenix, senator mccain insisted that no u.s. soldiers would be sent to syria. but that didn't go far enough for some in the audience. >> we cannot figure out a way to bring pressure to bear on assad to stop him in ways other than strikes that will kill innocent people. >> you talked about iraq. we went into iraq. iraq was as big a mess now as it was back then. >> and the fireworks may not be over just yet. senator mccain is set to hold another town hall later today in the city of prescot. a bizarre incident. a southwest jet took off with its cargo door still open. people who watched from the terminal said they couldn't believe their eyes. investigators say reckless hunter caused the destructive rim fire that raged across the area around yosemite.
they say that hunter built an illegal campfire that exploded out of control on august 17th. since then, the rim fire has the consumed more than 370-square miles. it has destroyed 111 structures including 11 homes. no word on whether the hunter will face criminal charges. now, to the weather. and extreme temperatures on this friday. details from jim dickey at accuweather. good morning, jim. >> good morning. an unseasonably cold air mass is in new england. take a look at the early morning low temperatures. falling to 39 in syracuse. 37 in burlington. a good many spots in the 40s, including pittsburgh, down to 46. with that, many spots under frost advisories this morning. that's expected to develop. also of note, gabrielle has been downgraded to a tropical depression. back to you. >> jim, thanks. experts say the weather in
oklahoma is one reason to blame for this. it's being called the worst invasion of brown crickets in years. >> you're squirming, i can tell just looking at you. millions causing problems in oklahoma city. the residents say the chirping keeps them away. and when they die, it smells like bad meat. they expect the crickets to be around for eight weeks. i have crickets around the homestead myself. >> they're apparently attracted to their counterparts' dead corpses. if you kill them, they eat each other. >> fantastic thought for breakfast. thank you, diane. much more ahead, including reports of a new supersized iphone that could be in the works. and a popular brand of yogurt being recalled this morning. what is causing the yogurt to go bad. and what to look for. find out if yours is safe to eat. plus, the amazing escape of a high school football team. that's their charter bus, now just a burntout shell. stay with us.
welcome back. wall street will be reacting, today, to the newest jobs report this morning. the labor department is expected to report that 177,000 jobs were created last month, which is a modest increase. but some investors are hoping for a bad jobs report today. fearing any good news will lead the fed to slow down its stimulus, leading to higher interest rates. a popular yogurtmaker recalling some of its products because of mold. the affected yogurt came from chobani. some customers complained of getting sick. others of bulging containers.
the company says most of the product is off the shelves. abcnews.com has most details on which yogurt cups are being recalled. and apple is thinking about supersizing the iphone. "the wall street journal" says the company is testing screens as large as six inches. the iphone being released in ex-week are expected to have four-inch screens. and jcpenney may be ending its battle with macy's over the right to sell martha stewart's products. the decision comes as both companies await a judge's ruling over which has the exclusive rights. those popular single-cup coffeemakers are about to serve up something new. campbell's soup will make packs for keurig brewers. it will be brewed over a packet of dried vegetables. it plans to make three varieties of soup. a high-tech version of the old.

thunderstorms. and there could be some flooded roadways in the northwest. >> it's a good day for flying. seattle, as you can see, the only city on the board where delays are possible. george zimmerman's wife has filed for divorce, less than two months in his acquittal in the death of 17-year-old martin. >> she supported her husband during his murder trial. but she was not in court when she struck a plea deal on a perjury charge. she spoke exclusively with abc news about her decision to end their marriage. >> i think that i'm realizing that i have been married to a person for almost seven years. and i don't think i ever really knew him at all. >> shellie was sentenced to 100 hours of service. we'll have more on "good morning america." aaron hernandez is heading back to a massachusetts courtroom today to be arraigned for murder charges against his
