US ready to 'take action' in Syria if Americans threatened

US Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes (R) briefs the press at Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts, on August 22, 2014The White House said it was ready to “take action” against any threat to America as it indicated serious consideration of US military strikes against Islamic State militants in Syria. The Pentagon has warned of the dangers of IS and said operations against it in Syria may be needed, after weeks of air strikes have slowed the advance of the Sunni militant group in Iraq and as the West reeled from the grisly killing of American journalist James Foley. The White House also said late Friday that air strikes in Syria may be necessary, as deputy national security advisor Ben Rhodes agreed that “any strategy to deal with the ISIL organization has to deal with both sides of the border, Iraq and Syria.”
