Top US Military Officer: America Is Considering Entering Syrian War
JUL. 18, 2013
America’s top military officer told a Senate committee that the Obama administration is considering the use of military force in Syria, Richard Lardner of the Associated Press reports.
U.S. Army General Martin Dempsey testified that he has provided President Barack Obama with options for the use of force in Syria, including “kinetic strikes.”
The military is constantly laying out potential courses of action, but Dempsey’s comments signal at least a willingness to directly enter the conflict.
