-- on the Fox News Channel the question about whether America would get involved in the situation in Syria.
May have taken a turn at this point is we have found out that inside that country.
Serin gas a chemical weapon has been mixed which means it can be used.
If they weaponized it loaded up put it in planes and drop his bombs on of their own people.
If that were to happen we know from our own government from our secretary of state and from President Obama.
That is a red line for this country to get involved along with NATO let's bring back by phone.
Jennifer Griffin Jennifer we've been talking.
Kind of pointedly about it Syria itself a little bit about Turkey I want to talk with you now about Lebanon.
Because they've seen some of the fighting in serious spill over but what you have inside Lebanon is Hezbollah you have potentially.
Potentially for some of our enemies to get involved in the situation tell me what that might look like.
Well we have what we know is that Hezbollah has already.
It has had training camps inside Syria.
And has been receiving -- help from Iran through Syria says there is saying -- that any easy pathway.
Between Lebanon Hezbollah.
Syria the regime in Syria and -- -- now it's our understanding that even the Iranians.
Are not in favor of -- -- -- machines using -- these chemical weapons so this is that this is something that is really almost unthinkable that.
It regime would.
There -- gas.
And would it would -- would appear to be making preparations to use those weapons.
That is what has people concerned in Washington tonight.
It is a red line -- -- said.
But there is very little that the the US.
Can do to stop the Asad regime because if as we mentioned this Sarin gas.
It once it is mixed it have to be used within a certain number of days within sixty days.
So is this put to the Obama administration -- -- very difficult position put NATO in a very difficult position.
Is there something preemptive that it.
Must do in order to prevent the -- regime.
Not using these weapons is there any warning or emissary that can be sent to tell them that this is a red line and it should not be done.
Excellent question about moving preemptively because of the Red -- would mean that.
Basically people would have to die Jennifer and order for that line to be cross have been asked.
Can something be done to keep that from happening real quickly al-Qaeda and other -- sometimes won't move in in cede ground when these conflicts are happening.
Well I think that what we've been seeing in Syria and because the situation has been festering in -- -- for such a long time.
You have seen various factions taking advantage of the anarchy.
Certainly there -- concerns another -- been some evidence that.
Linked groups have to have tried to operate within Syria but then their pets -- -- other known terror groups and then of course Iran.
Absolutely it's breaking wide open tonight on The Fox Report Jennifer Griffin thank you for being with us by phone.
