Kerry on Syria: Nothing Is More Serious


john-kerrySecretary of State John Kerry cut his summer vacation short today to deliver a powerful speech on Syria in the wake of the chemical attack that left hundreds dead.

“The meaning of this goes beyond the conflict in Syria … this is about the large-scale use of weapons that the world decided should never be used at all,” he began. Kerry said the horror of watching the suffering captured in videos of the attack is “hard to express in words” but should “never be ignored or forgotten.”

“Nothing today is more serious, and nothing is receiving more serious scrutiny,” he ended. Read more at The Wall Street Journal.
