Rice: U.S. action on Syria 'a message to Iran'

White House national security adviser Susan Rice clarified on Monday that any U.S. military action against the Syrian regime is in part aimed to send amessage to its ally Iran over its nuclear operation, Al-Arabiyareported.

Rice’s remarks at the New America Foundation think tank are part of a public effort by the White House to build support in order for Congress to authorize President Barack Obama to use military action against Syria.

Rice also said that the U.S. is morally bound to respond to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s use of chemical weapons against its own people since it raises threats to other countries in the region, including Israel, the region’s top U.S. ally.
