Pentagon: 'Naturally We Would Defend Ourselves' If Missiles Fired At U.S.

Pentagon: 'Naturally We Would Defend Ourselves' If Missiles Fired At U.S.

The Obama administration has refused to classify what type of attack on the Syrian regime it would instigate should Congress approve military action. Members of the administration would not label any attack against Syria as “an act of war” but only a “limited” military action. Pentagon Spokesman George Little was asked on Thursday if a country fired missiles on the United States if the government would consider it an act of war. Little said he wasn’t going to entertain “labels” or “hypotheticals” but concluded that the United States “takes our right of self-defense very seriously, and naturally we would defend ourselves.”
