WASHINGTON - Despite a forthcoming review of options in the deteriorating Syria crisis, the White House on Tuesday signaled that President Barack Obama remains wary of any direct US involvement in the three-year-old civil war.

With peace talks between Syrian President Bashar Assad's government and his armed opponents having failed for now, and Russia unwilling or unable to pressure its ally Assad to cede power, US policy toward Syria appears to be approaching a crossroads.

The White House is beginning to take a new look at options in Syria, a process that could take several weeks, US officials have said.
