KERRY: US AIR STRIKES ON SYRIA NOT ‘DEVASTATING’

0

WASHINGTON D.C.: Threatened military strikes against Syria would not have affected the course of the country’s civil war, US Secretary of State John Kerry told lawmakers on Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila). Speaking before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Kerry said US military action—ultimately abandoned by President Barack Obama at the 11th hour last year—would not have had a “devastating impact” on the regime of Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad. Obama scrapped plans to launch strikes against Syria after Syria’s key ally Russia helped broker a deal to dismantle Damascus’ chemical weapons arsenal.
