    Default Macron: "France Will Strike" If Chemical Weapons Used In Syria

    French President Emmanuel Macron says he is prepared to "strike" Syria if evidence is found to support claims that President Bashar al-Assad used chemical weapons against civilians, though noted that French intelligence agencies do not have any such proof.

    On chemical weapons, I set a red line and I reaffirm that red line,” Macron told reporters in Paris on Tuesday. “Today, our agencies, our armed forces have not established that chemical weapons, as set out in treaties, have been used against the civilian population.”
    “We have some indications of possible chlorine use [in Syria], but we have no absolute confirmation... So we, alongside the others, are working on trying to confirm this, as we clearly have to get the facts straight.” -French Defense Minister Florence Parly
    Facilities used to store and "originate" chemical weapons shipments would be the primary targets, said the French President, who also told reporters that he warned Russian President Vladimir Putin of France's plans during a phone call last Friday.
    I've reiterated it to President Putin, asking to make it very clear to the Syrian regime, which has reaffirmed that it does not use chemical weapons … but we are watching it,” Macron stated.

    Did France declare war on Syria? Are they going to attack Syria unilaterally, or wait for a "coalition of the willing". Where did they get the idea that they could do that?

    I have.

    The French troops should have had a REAL mutiny and killed their generals instead of just having a strike.

    Ya this is a Kubrick film for those who don't know - it's not quite Full Metal Jacket but good in it's own way.
