U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power said that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad had barely dented his stockpile of chemical weapons in an alleged attack near Damascus last month. "We have exhausted the alternatives" to military action, she said, adding that Assad must have weighed the fact that Russia would back him in the controversy over his alleged use of chemical weapons and it was naive to think Russia would change.
