Israel's prime minister said Wednesday that the world should not accept what he called a "partial deal" to curb Iran's nuclear program — just as it is not allowing the Syrian government to keep any of its chemical weapons stockpile.
Last week, the Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) "for its extensive efforts to eliminate chemical weapons." The official ceremony will take place in Oslo on Dec. 10.
Some of the U.S. weapons flowing to rebels in Syria are bound to fall into the hands of Islamic extremists, say analysts and a retired Army general just back from touring the country.
Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said Tuesday that, in order for Russia's offer to help Syria transfer its chemical weapons to international control to succeed, "the threat of U.S. military action must continue to be very real and credible."
The watchdog for U.S. spending on reconstruction in Iraq has words of warning if the U.S. military intervenes in Syria: You break it, you buy it.
Israeli's military warned on Tuesday that more strikes on Syria could be coming if the nation doesn't stand down its missile attacks.
Turkey's Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said it's obvious — Syria's government regime has used chemical weapons to attack rebels.
Israeli officials said the drone shot down Tuesday by the air force about 6 miles off its northern coast most likely was an Iranian-made aircraft that is part of Hezbollah's armory.
Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta announced Wednesday that the Pentagon is creating a new medal for cyberwarriors and drone pilots.
President Bashar Assad called on Syrians to defend their country against religious extremists seeking to destroy the nation, dismissing any prospect of dialogue with the "murderous criminals" he says are behind the uprising even as he outlined his vision for a peaceful settlement to the civil war.
Syrian President Bashar Assad attended prayers in a Damascus mosque to mark the start of a Muslim holiday on Sunday, his first appearance in public since the bombing last month that killed four of his top security officials.
Syria's prime minister began planning his break from the regime two months ago when Bashar Assad offered him the post and an ultimatum: Take the job or die.
Syria's government must take the first step toward settling the country's conflict by pulling troops from city streets, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Monday, raising pressure on an old ally.
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton expressed doubt Sunday about whether President Bashar Assad would ever adhere to a U.N.-sponsored peace plan to end Syria's year of bloodshed, and she urged world solidarity against a regime that she said was waging war on its own people.
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says Syria's President Bashar Assad fits the definition of a war criminal.
