Peres to Syria: Act in Good Faith or U.S. Will Attack

President Shimon Peres today (Wednesday) spoke about the proposed plan to destroy Syria’s chemical weapons stockpile.  According to a report by AFP, he warned that the U.S. would pursue the military option should the Assad regime not comply in full with the Russian proposal.

“If Syria is honest and takes real steps to remove and destroy its chemical weapons, the U.S. won’t attack,” Peres said.  “But if there is a crack in Syria’s integrity, I have no doubt that the U.S. will act on the military option,” he warned.
