Defense Secretary James Mattis issued a warning to Bashar al-Assad’s regime against the use of chemical weapons at a press briefing on Tuesday.
“If [the Syrian regime] use chemical weapons, they are going to pay a very, very stiff price,” Mattis said.
Mattis pointed out that Syria had signed on to the Geneva convention, which prohibits the use of chemical weapons.
The Defense secretary also took an underhanded shot at Russia, mentioning that Russia had certified the complete removal of Syria’s chemical weapons stockpile.
