WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. opposes even limited U.S. military intervention in Syria because it believes rebels fighting the Assad regime wouldn't support American interests if they got power today.
The Joint Chiefs chairman, Gen. Martin Dempsey, says the U.S. is capable of eliminating Syrian President Bashar Assad's air force and shifting momentum back toward the opposition.
But he says this would commit the U.S. to another war and offer no peace strategy in a nation plagued by ethnic rivalries.
Dempsey says Syria is not about choosing between two sides. It means choosing one among many and that side must be ready to promote U.S. interests. He says, "Today, they are not."
Dempsey's assessment came in a letter to Rep. Eliot Engel of New York. A copy was obtained by The Associated Press.
