UK foreign minister can't rule out Syria intervention, says situation resembles 1990s Bosnia
LONDON (AP) ' British Foreign Secretary William Hague says he can't rule out military intervention in Syria, saying the situation there is beginning to resemble the violence which gripped Bosnia in the 1990s.
Hague told Sky News television that time was now "clearly running short" to implement international envoy Kofi Annan's ceasefire plan in Syria.
Asked if his government had ruled out the use of force, Hague said Sunday that the country was "on the edge of collapse or of a sectarian civil war so I don't think we can rule anything out."
He compared the situation in Syria to what happened in Bosnia in 1990s, when campaigns of sectarian bloodletting pulled the country apart resulting in tens of thousands of deaths.
