During an interview on MSNBC, State Department Press Secretary John Kirby got pressed multiple times on what the U.S. breaking point in Syria would be.
The most recent failed Syrian cease-fire deal collapsed after a humanitarian aid convoy of 31 trucks carrying water and food to Aleppo came under attack in a prolonged airstrike, killing about 20 people.
MSNBC’s Joe Scarbrough asked Kirby if the U.S. would enact a no-fly zone, but Kirby sidestepped the question. He did, however, make it clear that “there would be no U.S. military solution,” in Syria.
Reports indicate that Russia was behind the bombing, which ultimately resulted in the cease-fire deal failing.
“Everybody was happy that we had an agreement for all the reasons you said,” said Steve Rattner, economist and MSNBC panelist. “Now they have flagrantly violated it in a number of ways. So at what point do you say to yourself we can’t do business with these people because they can’t be trusted?”
“We’re hanging by a thread here,” Kirby told Rattner. But when pressed on how long it would take for the U.S. to get involved, Kirby admitted he didn’t know.
