If Not Comply I Will Strike You


US President Barack Obama welcomed the deal reached Saturday to strip Syria of chemical weapons but said much remains to be done and warned Damascus to comply with the accord.
In a statement, Obama said that if the regime of Syria's Assad does not live up to the deal Washington reached with Syria's ally Russia, the United States remains prepared to act.
Obama said the accord was made possible "in part" by what he called his credible threat to use force against Syria as punishment for its alleged use of chemical weapons against civilians last month.
