...by the way, I'm NOT stating that I think the U.S. is an upstanding member of the world community. I simply am saying the consequences of not punishing Assad for his WILLFUL choice to gas innocent people (in a country crawling with al-Qaeda...and no way to secure those weapons) is greater than hitting him hard. You have to choose the lesser of two evils. Such an atrocity cannot go unanswered though.

  


.....Show me some concrete PROOF that Assad did this before you spew off the top of your mouth....

I don't like the prospect of attacking another Middle Eastern country, but, in my opinion, this isn't Iraq. Iraq and Afghanistan were unacceptable responses to a massively devastating--but isolated--terrorist attack on U.S. soil. Neither war was justified. A military strike against Syria would be.

It is absolutely intolerable that Assad used gas on mostly innocent people (non-combatants). It can't be permitted and requires a response. The world has already stated that it doesn't tolerate such weapons being used in the Geneva Conventions. The U.S. should have intervened sooner...now there are no good options.

French government of Hollande has got emboldened by recent victories on rag-tag Malian terrorists and Libya.......these victories somehow gone into his frog head and now thinks that he can go in Syria and achieve the same results. All Russia has to do is point a few nukes towards Paris! He will run.......

Where is the most elegant foreign minister in the world, Dominic de Vilpen (spelling?)

  


Un fortunately, all the great politicians have gone, Dominique de Villepin like others. Lots, lots of neocons and dumb liberals in the French Parliament nowadays, and only a handful of good voices.
Let's hope they see reason anyway. This war is sheer lunacy and would make the president a war criminal.

59% of the French do not support war on Syria, and 80% of Americans are against bombing Syria too, however, in a "DEMOCRACY" ; the government don't listen to the people! They only listen to the bribes from Qatar, and Saudi Arabia.

Where is the most elegant foreign minister in the world, Dominic de Vilpen (spelling?) who stood in the UN giving the memorable speech against America's plan to invade Iraq ten years ago? France have been transformed from independent nation to follower of America even blindly!

I am not the Assad supporter. I only support Who is right. Don't let one Francois Hollande dictate the future of the France. Fight what is right, hear your inner voice and conscience , do;t just hear the mainstream news. they are almost all has been manipulated. Search the internet. The British, France, US) and his gang have many times violate the UN law. With Iraq, Libya, etc . They are lawless villain and actually should be brought to justice, wonder why until now there are no movement against these crooks in of Europe and US.
