Bolton cautions Syria against using chemical weapons amid plan to pull US troops


(Worthy News) - Following the decision to pull U.S. troops out of Syria, National Security Adviser John Bolton reportedly cautioned the Syrian government on Saturday that the drawdown should not be viewed as an opening to use chemical weapons.

The U.S. official was traveling to Israel when he expressed there was “absolutely no change” in the U.S.’s stance on the matter of chemical weapons, according to The Wall Street Journal.

“As we elaborate how the withdrawal is going to occur and the circumstances, we don’t want the Assad regime to see what we do as representing any diminution in our opposition to the use of weapons of mass destruction,” Bolton said, adding that “the Assad regime should be under no illusion.” His comments referred to Syria’s president, Bashar al-Assad.

  1. 3 times, the Pentagon and U.N. tried to pin the use of chemical weapons on Assad. 3 times, it has been disproven by Englan, Germany and Russia.
    I am beginning to tire of the continuing attempt to accuse Assad for uses of chemical weapons. Sounds like they're trying to set Assad up in preparation for another Pentagon assault. Not Trump, HE has already said that he wants OUT of Syria.
