London, England. On a flying visit to to the "Old Dart", US Secretary of State John Kerry has been commenting on the Syrian crisis and the expectation that America will strike at Syrian targets to bring the civil war to a close.
One journalist asked Mr Kerry what it would take on Syria's behalf to prevent the USA from striking at its land. "Well,um, you could say," Kerry muttered "um, Mr Assad could mow my lawn; he could mend the President's (Obama) DVD player; he could prune the roses in the Presidential Rose Garden; he could change the light bulbs on street lights up and down the Washington beltway. These are just a few examples" he said. "Oh, and he could even perform at the annual Christmas pantomime, as himself, ha ha.." Kerry added.
The Secretary of State will fly back to Washington tomorrow.
