Barack Obama warns Assad not to make 'tragic mistake' of using chemical weapons


Mr Assad's beleaguered regime had earlier threatened to use such weapons if Syria faced international military intervention, although it vowed not to turn them against its own civilians.

"Given the regime's stockpile of chemical weapons, we will continue to make it clear to Assad and those around him that the world is watching," Mr Obama told an audience of US veterans in the western state of Nevada.

"They will be held accountable by the international community and the United States should they make the tragic mistake of using those weapons," he said.

The world is watching. And what they see is the Obama regime making the whole USA a stench in the nostrils of the nations of the world by killing and maiming innocent bystanders - and even American citizens - all over the Middle East.
