U.S. sets high bar for Syrian involvement

Will the U.S. get involved in Syria? “I think it’s clear that the only way that the United States would get involved militarily is if there’s a consensus in the international community to try to do something along those lines,” Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta told the House Armed Services Committee. He added, “At this point in time …a decision is that we will not have any boots on the ground and that we will not act unilaterally in that part of the world.”
