US President Barack Obama directly warned Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad Monday that he would face “consequences” if he made the “tragic mistake” of turning chemical weapons on his own people.

“Today, I want to make it absolutely clear to Assad and those under his command, the world is watching. The use of chemical weapons is and would be totally unacceptable,” Obama said.
