U.S. could go it alone in attack on Syria after U.K. rejection

The U.S. is reportedly still considering military intervention against Syria for the latter country's suspected use of chemical weapons despite Britain's parliament last night ruling out such action.

The Obama administration moved to strengthen domestic support for intervention by providing congressional leaders with intelligence findings that pointed to the Assad regime's culpability.

The U.S. could even take unilateral action, although it may not have to, as French President Francois Hollande reiterated his support for action.

Oil is -1% to $107.69 following the U.K.'s decision, with Citi strategist Tim Evans saying that while a strike against Syria is still possible, it's "certainly looking less likely than it did a day ago."
