Times Pentagon correspondent Elizabeth Bumiller writes in her article, datelined March 11, that "senior Pentagon officials" told her that any U.S. intervention in Syria, has "the potential for starting a proxy war with Iran or Russia, two crucial allies of Syria." And even more ominously, Michele Flournoy, a former top Pentagon official, said in Washington last week, that "If we jump in with purely military instruments as the U.S., absent a broader strategy, we could very quickly hasten reactions from others, namely Russia and Iran, to bolster the regime AND START U.S. DOWN A ROAD TOWARDS GREATER CONFRONTATION."
