DAMASCUS, SYRIA (WKOW) – Syria says it will defend itself in case of a U.S. strike after calling U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry a liar on Tuesday.
President Barack Obama is still deciding what to do, but a military response is one of the options. President Obama has already ruled out sending in ground troops.
Yesterday, Kerry said there was "undeniable" evidence the Syrian Government carried out a chemical weapons attack on its own people.
Britain says it's drawing up a contingency plan for a possible military attack.
Syria's foreign minister says the United Nations second trip to the site of an alleged chemical weapons attack will be delayed. Officials say gunmen and rebel groups couldn't reach an agreement about guaranteeing the team's safety, after unidentified snipers opened fire on their vehicle on Monday.
United Nations started investigating the potential attack on Monday.
