Foreign strike to create balance of power in Syria "delusional:" minister

BEIRUT (Reuters) - Any foreign strike on Syria to try to create a balance of power in the war between President Bashar al-Assad's forces and the rebels is "delusional", the foreign minister said on Tuesday.

"If the purpose of a possible (foreign) military strike is to achieve a balance of power ... it's delusional and not at all possible," Walid Moualem told a news conference.
