Syria won’t divert attention from Afghanistan: US
“We are not taking our eye off the ball in Afghanistan. We can conduct the Syria mission, if called upon, and we can fight the war in Afghanistan, too,” Pentagon Press Secretary George Little said.
“We can walk and talk and chew gum at the same time. We know that we have a war to prosecute in Afghanistan, and we're continuing to engage in that process,” Little said.
Little was responding questions about concerns that the situation in Syria could divert the US attention from the war in Afghanistan.
