I just read on Kuwait Times that John Kerry has state that certain Arab nations have offered to bear the cost!! This is taken from the Kuwait Times –http://news.kuwaittimes.net/arab-nations-offer-pay-syrias-strike/
Arab nations have offered to help pay for any US military intervention in Syria, Secretary of State John Kerry told lawmakers yesterday as he sought support for missile strikes. “With respect to Arab countries offering to bear the cost and to assist, the answer is profoundly yes, they have. That offer is on the table,” Kerry said as he appeared before a House of Representatives panel.
The offer was “quite significant,” he said. “Some of them have said that if the United States is prepared to go do the whole thing the way we’ve done it previously in other places, they’ll carry that cost. That’s how dedicated they are to this.” But he stressed: “Obviously, that is not in the cards and nobody is talking about it, but they are talking about taking seriously getting this job done.” He was appearing before the House Foreign Affairs committee on the second day of the administration’s blitz on Capitol hill to persuade lawmakers to approve limited military strikes.
Now the US can say that they won’t be affected financially!
