"The president has been clear, the secretary has been clear, that the use of chemical weapons is absolutely unacceptable," U.S. State Department Spokesperson Jennifer Psaki told CNN's Hala Gorani on Wednesday.
It now seems as though that red line in the Syrian conflict may have been crossed, again, this time outside the capital, Damascus.
Psaki said the U.S. was calling for "unfettered" access for an investigative team to look into the incident, but also said that she did not "want to look into a crystal ball" and predict what the U.S.'s response might be should the use of chemical weapons be confirmed.
"We’ve been clear that boots on the ground is not part of the options being considered, but all options remain on the table," Psaki said. "I'm not going to outline those here."

The United States of America is leading the globe in business, finance, development. Being the foremost super power in the world comes with a lot of perks but also with great humanitarian if not historical responsibility to act in the defense of the helpless people being slaughtered in Syria even if and when these action do not align with their economic or strategic interests. History will not forget. The world is counting on your action!
"The world is counting on your action!" Yes! Help abolish this curse, called islam!
Happy the French are calling for the use of force.
Why should US do that? Why should US police the world? If US is to do that all the muslims around the world will jihad against US. It will backfire. Muslims are ungrateful people. Dont interfere. Let the muslims slaughter one another just like in Egypt
Look no further. Just look at 9/11, Fort Hood and Boston. They are ungrateful muslims who massacred americans for their contributions
Us being the world most superpower why can't it now see on the meaningful ways on how to stop war in syria and egypt once and forever instead of waiting when people been killed when they now want to investigate what for? will they turn the coupes alive? this is bulsheet
Remember, history shows the US tested similar chemicals on their own citizens several decades agi. Who has the moral high ground?
Why is Psaki always smiling even if the subject being discussed is about hundreds or thousands being killed? The smiling seems psychotic. State Dept might want to reconsider how its people act/look before the world because we're not only listening, we're also seeing other visual cues.
This the Only opportunity Obama has to change the game in Syria. If Assad wins this battle, Americans, Israeli, Europeans and some Arab neubour wil regret it in the future. Obama must not allow Russia have base in the middle east. Russia is the number one enemy of American.
Again, if the game in Syria changes Iran will submit, That is why the are sponsoring Assad regime. I hope Obama should read the hand written on the wall. We can use the opposition fighters to change the game on the ground without getting involved. Just supply them the weapons the need without been afraid. The enemies we know is better than Russians we don't know. Those boys can be easily controlled than allowing Russian having their base in Syria in the future.
Russians are the fascists and scoms of the earth
Don't be racist, and learn some history!
Is this move against Musilims? Swallow your flithy words harbouring hatred. When there was a religous war in northern Ireland we never dared to say let christians kill one another ah!
