NATO warning raises the stakes for United States in Syria

Our second story OutFront: another stern warning.

NATO today said that the use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime in Syria would be met with an immediate reaction from the international community.

Former British Prime Minister and Middle East Envoy Tony Blair had an even clearer message for Assad, saying that the use of chemical weapons would lead to military action from the international community.
