President Obama has urged Assad to step down in order to save lives, however he has yet to concede his position. Even Russia, normally a staunch ally of Syria has said that it draws the line on the use of Chemical and Biological Weapons… it would seem the only nation still supporting Assad is Iran. President Obama has also said that if Chemical Weapons are used, the United States, its allies, and the world will be forced to act.
Despite evidence to the contrary, an official from Syria has publically stated that, “even if such weapons exist in Syria, they will not be used against the Syrian people. We cannot possibly commit suicide, Syria is a responsible country.”
