United States President Barack Obama made a stern warning to the country of Syria. Early last Monday, the leader of the U.S. stated that he has not ruled out an offensive strike on Bashar al-Assad and his brutal regime.
Obama spoke from the White House, saying that if Syria were to deploy chemical or biological weapons, the United States will follow through with its threat of launching an attack.
“We have been very clear to the Assad regime but also to other players on the ground that a red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized,” said Obama.
U.S. president stated that they have set a series of contingency plans for chemical or biological weapons in case they fall in the hands of the wrong people. Obama also stated that this warning doesn’t apply only to Syria, but to any other country that is considering chemical warfare. AV
