ABSTRACT
2 The U.S., Russia and 24 other nations vowed to help the Iraqi gov't fight the Islamic State "by any means necessary" but didn't specify any action. Russia, which has backed Syrian Pres. Bashar Assad, also warned against airstrikes in Syria without first getting Damascus' OK. The U.S. legal basis for any strikes without Assad's assent is delicate and rests on lost legitimacy after chemical attacks.
