two women. they have picked big names for the honor. it's all ahead, unless breaking news changes everything on studio "b", but we begin with something out of syria. president drew a line in the sand. it has now happened. when it comes to the united states response to the slaughter in syria, according to the president. u.s. plans for possible military involvement would change if the syrian government uses or moves its chemical weapons. a line in the sand. more on that in just a moment. meanwhile officials in turkey a car bomb exploded near the border has killed eight people and injured dozens more. according to local media, a man ran away from a car parked near the police station minutes before the explosion. turkey is former syrian ally
12:02 pm
that is calling for assad to step down. turkey hosts syrian fighters on the soil. the concern from the very beginning has been that this conflict could misled to other countries. question as fox reports live this hour, has that begun? steve harrigan is streaming live from the turkish city where the bombing happened. steve? >> reporter: the real question behind the explosion is who is behind it. there is two main possibilities. on one hand, it could are kurdish separateists. they are fighey say is their independence, turkish government considers them a terrorist organization. on the other hand it could be spillover, spillover from the war inside syria. turkish government has been a clear opponent of the assad regime. syria says rebel fighters are being housed and support from the turkish side.
12:03 pm
this explosion killed eight and wounded 50. the target was policemen, they tried to kill as many as possible. bystanderssome saw someone running from a car. the explosion created a huge fireball. the number of dead, stands at 8, wounded 50. the numbers are likely to go up through the night. >> shep: is this an area that has been one where syrian rebel z have been hacking out? does it make sense this would be a target area or not so much? >> we're about 50 miles from the syrian border. it's the first major city inside turkey, to gather money and recruits they would be coming to this city. it could be a target of those that support the regime. >> shep: stay with us. now to what the president said about the movement of chemical weapons inside syria, it could change is calculus to the response. >> i have at this point not
12:04 pm
ordered military engagement in the situation but the point you made about chemical and biological weapons is critical. that is an issue that doesn't just concern syria. it concerns our close allies in the region including israel. it concerns us. we cannot have a situation where chemical or biological weapons are falling into the hands of the wrong people. we have been very clear to the assad regime but also to other players on the ground that a red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around. >> shep: a red line. they are warning the regime, quote, other players on the ground that use or move such weapons would be a red line. would that mean an escalation or spreading of the war?
12:05 pm
with us is christian whiten. he is with us a current a principal at d.c. international advisory, former state department official. i wonder what your sense of this is. first of all, with the president's statement on the movement of weapons. >> it's a pretty big development coming out of an unplanned press conference because we have gone from a u.s. policy where the u.s. wasn't willing to arm the preble z. he is contemplating in public invited go syria in the wake of chemical weapons. of course, what happens to those weapons after the assad regime if it goes. it's a major change. >> shep: throughout the arab spring in the last 18 months of the uprising there have been
12:06 pm
concerns this could spread regionally. what level of concern do you have about the car bombing in turkey? >> it's potentially a very aggressive act if it pans out. if this was organized or acquiesced by the government. turkey has been concerned all along with the deterioration of security to the southern border. it is switched as you noted earlier in support to go assad to opposing assad and harbors the rebel z. turkey could invoke self-defense under nato and confront the rest of na with a request to get involved with the conflicts. it could potentially escalate with a war that would involve the u.s.. >> shep: steve, i'm independent to find out what turkey has been saying in the early hours. what is their verbal responsible has been?
12:07 pm
>> initially it's just an hour here since the egg explosion you could hear from where i'm standing. it's clearly bliaj kurdish separatists. >> i'm guessing that would be a best case scenario for the prospects of spreading war? >> a terrorist attack, that would be par for the course. turkey has had a long, very long spat with kurdish separatists, yes. >> shep: there be updates. the bombing happened just about an hour ago. as we get development z. first, leaders are slamming comments from a sitting congressman that is running for the u.s. senate. he made the remarks yesterday. listen. >> it seems to be first of all from what i understand from doctors, that is really rare. if it's a legitimate rape.

12:10 pm
republicans are doing putting distance between himself and mr. aiken. watch nor democrats to make as much hay as they can. >> shep: i guess he had 24 hours if he were to make a decision to drop out and there were three people in a three way race in the primary. interestingly, not surprisingly. clare mccaskill's campaign is pushing for him as one that comes from the right? >> back in the primary process, that is right. there is not a lot of attention in the missouri race. they are all up in new hampshire. first time they took questions from an audience. first time they were back after an initial debut. some is kind of symbolic. this is where romney had his first win and he brought paul ryan here and there was one thing i knew you would love this.
