G.I.s mass on border with Syria
400 NATO soldiers readying Patriot missiles
NATO BEGAN putting troops and missiles along the Syrian border Thursday in response to reports that embattled President Bashar Assad is poised to use chemical weapons.
At least 400 NATO soldiers from the U.S. and the Netherlands were beefing up Turkey’s border with Syria and readying Patriot missiles.
“Nobody knows what such a regime is capable of and that is why we are acting protectively here,” German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle said of NATO’s move.
