Arabian Night and US Politic


Mitt Romney says he's willing to send US troops to Syria if needed to prevent the spread of chemical weapons.
The Republican presidential contender has told CBS News that the United States must take "whatever action is necessary" to ensure weapons of mass destruction don't fall into the wrong hands.
Romney says that may require ground troops or action by US allies such as Turkey or Saudi Arabia.
The former Massachusetts governor has limited foreign policy experience, but has so far outlined aggressive positions on potential threats. He told CBS that he would also support military action to prevent Iran from "becoming nuclear" or providing fissile material to Hezbollah. Romney says a nuclear Iran is unacceptable and could allow America's enemies to
attack the United States.
The Syrian government has acknowledged that it possesses chemical weapons, but says that it would only consider using them in the case of a foreign military intervention, and that they would not be used on Syrian citizens.
