Still evaluation response to Syria

Mideast Syria

WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama is still evaluating how the U.S. will respond to the chemical attack on Syrian civilians, allegedly by the Syrian government.

But Obama says any American response would send a “strong signal” to Syrian President Bashar Assad.

Obama administration officials have said they would take action against the Syrian government even without the backing of allies or the United Nations.

Meanwhile, British Prime Minister David Cameron is promising British lawmakers that he would not go to war until a U.N. chemical weapons team on the ground in Syria has a chance to report its findings.

On Wednesday, the U.N. Security Council failed to reach an agreement on a draft resolution from the British seeking authorization for the use of force in Syria following last week’s chemical weapons attack.

Russia, as expected, objects to international intervention.
