WORLD IS AT THE CROSSROADS OF WAR AND PEACE – CHINESE AMBASSADOR
French Ambassador Francois Delattre told the UN Security Council Syria’s Government has reached a “point of no return” by using chemical weapons.
He vowed to confront the “intolerable threat” of such attacks to global security.
He said that by “deciding once again to use chemical weapons” in the rebel-held town of Douma, “the regime has reached a point of no-return,” Delattre said.
“France will shoulder its responsibility to end an intolerable threat to our collective security,” he said. “We must cease the chemical weapons escalation in Syria.”

Syria has also moved most of its aircraft in to Iran and actually armed them ready at Iranian airbases.
The idea being they will strike to coalition taking off from Iran, so they are ready to go. Obviously, if we go after those bases in Iran, regional war here we are
Bear in mind it seems the UK have asked for any action to start before Monday if it can be arranged that way. May doesn’t want to reach Monday and be faced with a yes or no vote for action in parliament. If we reach Monday and no strike its a massive political problem in the UK as it will trigger a whole parliamentary procedure and vote which the government may lose.
Gaat dus zeer waarschijnlijk voor maandag beginnen.
