U.S. Secretary of State, John Kerry and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the Armed Forces of the United States Martin Dempsey disagreed on the issue of attacks on Syrian territory during a meeting at the White House.

Kerry came out strongly for the bombing of air bases belonging to Syrian government forces, which, in his opinion, are used for chemical weapons attacks against opposition groups.

Dempsey made a serious warning against such a move stating that as a military commander such attacks carry a high-risk and will require further large-scale bombing of Syrian air defense facilities.

As noted by the media, the message has caused quite a stir, noting that Dempsey did not rule out air strikes but merely warned what the consequences of such actions would be.
