Secretary of State John Kerry told members of the House Foreign Affairs Committee on Wednesday that he cannot guarantee the “outcome of Syria as a whole,” through U.S. intervention in the region, but he could guarantee the U.S. would make clear to Bashar al-Assad that it would cost him to use chemical weapons.
“I can’t give you a guarantee of the outcome of Syria as a whole, but I can give you a guarantee that the United States of America can make it clear to Assad that it’s going to cost him to use chemical weapons, and we can have an impact on deterring and degrading his capacity. That guarantee is what I can give you, and that’s what the president’s seeking to do,” Kerry said.
