Mattis: If Syria Use Chemical Weapons, They Will Pay a High Price

‘If they use chemical weapons, they’re going to pay a very, very stiff price’


MATTIS: "I just want to say very clearly that the use of chemical weapons contrary to the Geneva Convention that Syria has signed up for, using chemical weapons that Syria agreed under U.N. pressure to remove from their arsenal, those chemical weapons that the Russians certified were gone, that if they use chemical weapons, they're going to pay a very, very stiff price."
