The article talks about how the United States and Russia have come up with an agreement to stop the use of chemical weapons in Syria. This agreement will also have consequences if Syria disobeys the agreement.
Secretary of state John Kerry said “Providing this effort is fully implemented, it can end the threat these weapons pose not only to the Syrian people, but also to their neighbors, to the region,”. Meaning that if this gets approved it will help out Syrians neighbors from feeling threaten.
And if Syria does not agree to the stop of chemical weapons the Obama administration will not press U.N. authorization to use force against Syria. So their will be no military force if Syria denies the agreement.
