John Kerry Calls For Air Strikes on Syria

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff not so keen

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry called for "immediate" airstrikes on Syria following the White House's claim that the Syrian government had used chemical weapons against foreign-backed militant groups.

At a White House meeting last Wednesday, Kerry "vociferously" pushed for air strikes on Syrian airfields, Bloomberg reports.

Kerry had postponed a trip to the Middle East to attend the White House meetings where senior U.S. officials discussed "all options" against Syria.
