“The US have no doubt the chemical weapon was applied by the Syrian regime last week,” the US Vice-President Joseph "Joe" Robinette Biden announced.

“For we know that the Syrian regime are the only ones who have the weapons — have used chemical weapons multiple times in the past, have the means of delivering those weapons, have been determined to wipe out exactly the places that were attacked by chemical weapons,” he continued. “And instead of allowing U.N. inspectors immediate access, the government has repeatedly shelled the sites of the attack and blocked the investigation for five days.”


"The president believes and I believe that those who use chemical weapons against defenceless men, women, and children should and must be held accountable," Biden said.


US Defence Secretary Charles Timothy «Chuck» Hagel said earlier, that American forces are "ready" to launch strikes on Syria if President Barack Obama chooses to order an attack. Preventing further use of chemical weapons is the purpose for the military operation.


Sources within the US Administration say that the military commitment will be mostly done by launching strikes from the US naval units situated in the Mediterranean.
