UK Rejects Military Attack On Syria- U.S. To Act Alone (Video)

By Susan Duclos

Britain’s House of Commons on Thursday rejected a motion from the UK's Prime Minister David Cameron to participate in military action with the U.S., against Syria.

The White House has responded to Cameron's failure to obtain permission by indicating that it is willing to act alone.

"We have seen the result of the Parliament vote in the U.K. tonight," National Security Council spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden said in a statement.

“The U.S. will continue to consult with the U.K. government – one of our closest allies and friends. As we've said, President Obama’s decision-making will be guided by what is in the best interests of the United States," she added.

"He believes that there are core interests at stake for the United States and that countries who violate international norms regarding chemical weapons need to be held accountable."
