International support is growing for action aimed at punishing Syria's Government for allegedly using Chemical Weapons against rebel strongholds last week. The 22 member Arab League says President Bashar Assad's Government is to blame for the attacks. Assad calls such claim "Preposterous." Speaking to the BBC Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said US Forces "Are ready to go" should the President order Military Action.
Meanwhile, France says it is also ready to punish those who made the decision to gas innocents.
