Barack Obama sceptical on major military action in Syria
Washington: President Barack Obama expressed scepticism that setting up a no-fly zone in Syria or other major US military action could save lives or tip the balance against President Bashar al-Assad's regime.
Speaking to PBS television on Monday, Obama said critics urging bold intervention failed to understand there was no simple solution and "if you set up a no-fly zone, that you may not be actually solving the problem."
While Obama's deputies last week announced plans to arm the Syrian opposition, the US president in the interview warned of a litany of dangers associated with direct military action and repeated his determination not to be drawn into another ground war in the Middle East.
Responding to calls to shut down Syria's combat aircraft with American air power, Obama said "the fact of the matter is for example, 90 percent of the deaths that have taken place haven't been because of air strikes by the Syrian air force."
