White House gives Syria ultimatum

The White House issues a warning to Syria, promising serious consequences if it again attacks its own people with chemical weapons.

That public warning came from the White House Press Secretary, Sean Spicer, who accused Assad of preparing an attack similar to the one he carried out on April 4th.  At least 70 people were killed in that attack.  The White House said that attack crossed a red line.

ABC News Military Analyst, Steve Ganyard, says, "If they [don't] believe Assad is getting the message, he could expand it and include military headquarters, the presidential palace, or even Assad himself."
 
US Ambassador, UN, Nikki Haley, even singled out Russia, tweeting that any future attacks on the people of Syria will be blamed not only on Assad, but on those who support him.
