Obama, Mil Dispute Attack On Syria
WASHINGTON [MENL] -- President Barack Obama has encountered vigorous
resistance from the military to his plans to attack Syria.
Administration sources said the Joint Chiefs of Staff as well as many in
the U.S. military command have opposed Obama's directive to prepare for
imminent air strikes on the regime of President Bashar Assad. The sources said the
opposition within the military and the Defense Department has warned of
retaliation by Iran and Syria against U.S. interests throughout the Middle
East and Africa.
