John Kerry says Syria’s use of chemical weapons ‘undeniable’ as Americans oppose intervention

Secretary of State John Kerry called Syria’s use of chemical weapons “undeniable” and indicated that President Barack Obama is planning to take action in the coming days.

Setting the stage for eventual military intervention, Kerry said in a statement from the State Department that what is happening on the ground in Syria “is real and it is compelling” and requires a response from the international community. Attacks on civilians by Bashar Assad’s regime are, he said, “a moral obscenity” that “should shock the conscience of the world.”

“Make no mistake: President Obama believes there must be accountability for those who would use the world’s most heinous weapons against the world’s most vulnerable people. Nothing today is more serious, and nothing is receiving more serious scrutiny,” Kerry later added.

In the coming days, Kerry said, the president will “be making an informed decision about how to respond to this indiscriminate use of chemical weapons.”

The recent poll indicates that less than 9% of Americans support the decision on Syria and the number rises to 25% is the Assad regime used chemical weapons on their citizens.

Russia’s Foreign Ministry called on the Syrian government and on opposition leaders to allow U.N. inspectors to investigate a suspected chemical attack. Many conflicting reports point to the rebels using weapons or faking photos and exposures to instigate support.
