Date of publication: 09/02/2012

The US ambassador to the UN, Susan Rice

Following the very aggressive statements made at the weekend by the US ambassador to the UN, Susan Rice, first in the Security Council (when she said the US was "disgusted" by the Russian and Chinese vetoes) and then to the press, an anonymous State Department official has now said that the US may "militarise" the crisis in Syria, i.e. deploy military force against that country.  See this report in The Daily Telegraph dated 9 February 2012.
