UK minister: Can't rule out intervention in Syria. Will this drag the US in to it as well?
LONDON (AP) - British Foreign Secretary William Hague said Sunday that
he couldn't rule out a military intervention in Syria, saying the
situation there was beginning to resemble the violence that gripped
Bosnia in the 1990s.
Hague told Sky News television that time was now "clearly running short"
to implement international envoy Kofi Annan's ceasefire plan in Syria,
and that Britain was already turning its eye toward what it would do if
the plan failed.
Asked if his government had ruled out the use of force, Hague said
Sunday that the country was "on the edge of collapse or of a sectarian
civil war so I don't think we can rule anything out."
is looking more like Bosnia in the 1990s, being on the edge of a
sectarian conflict in which neighboring villages are attacking and
killing each other," he added.
