Posted on 08/30/2013 4:53:29 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper
President François Hollande of France on Friday offered strong support for international military action against the Syrian government, supporting the Obama administration just a day after the British Parliament rejected Minister Prime David Camerons call for intervention.

Will they use both planes?
Obama & Hollande are socialist warmongers
More like tyrants...
Wow. I’ll sleep much better tonight knowing the French have our backs...
(American Revolution notwithstanding).
Hmm... the last time two fascist/socialist/statist world powers worked together to wage war against a sovereign nation entrenched in civil war... sounds very... Napoleonic? Hilteric? Mussolinic?
Hollande is one of the worst socialist leaders of France among a slew of socialist leaders of France. He has that in common with Obama, who is the worst of all socialist Presidents we have had in this Country. I would say the worst President we have ever had bar none, even Jimmah Carter, and that’s saying something.
Both Hollande and Obama need to divert attention away from their regimes; however, if they think this is the way to do it, against the will of their own people, they are in for a rude awakening and a further plummet in their polls, while taking their respective parties down with them.
froggie wants his gold back. If you think the Leprechauns get mean, you have never seen a pi$$ed off bullfrog with a hand grenade.
(Reuters) In a humiliating defeat for the British leader likely to damage Cameron's hopes of being re-elected in 2015 and set back traditionally strong U.S.-UK relations, parliament defied Cameron by 285 to 272 votes.
Commentators said it was the first time a British prime minister had lost a vote on war since 1782, when parliament effectively conceded American independence by voting against further fighting to crush the colony's rebellion.

Now as strange as it sounds, but I’d be glad to let France take the lead on this. They’ve done a good job fighting jihadists in Mali, and they were also first to strike Qaddafi. Hollande is a socialist, but so is Ehud Barak. I’d rather have a socialist who knows how to fight jihadists running a campaign than a socialist who is more concerned about his golf game.

It is simply AMAZING to me how much outcry there was from the left here in this country and from France during the run up to the Iraq War, and now, France is perfectly fine with attacking Libya and now Syria.
Of course there isn't a darned thing they can do to contribute to the attack but they're willing to stand stalwartly behind us when we do. Thanks a lot.
Heard any mention of Benghazi or the IRS corruption lately?
Yet, they are both too stupid & full of themselves that they fail to realize there could be serious consequences for both countries & the world for this folly.
They back us but we will do the dirty work just like in the past.
How does French law work? Does Hoande require legislative support?
I think that the Libyan adventure was as bogus as they come. Khaddhafi had become docile in the international arena although totalitarian at home. I think he knew too much about the Obama agenda and was murdered as a result in order to bury his knowledge.
Hollande not Hoande.
If it were a Republican president in office making the same decision, how many of us would still be against it?
First of all, the rebels used chemical weapons, too. Do we bomb them?
Second, there is no definitive proof Assad used chemical weapons. IIRC, when Saddam did it to the Kurds, his regime was boastful.
Third, what is our national interest in Syria? Do they provide us with an important natural resource? Have they launched an attack on Americans? Are they building nuclear weapons? Have they attacked one of our allies?
Fourth, why is it okay for Assad to shoot his guns at people, run over them with tanks, destroy buildings they’re hiding in....but the minute he SUPPOSEDLY uses a chemical weapon (which, by the way, could be bottles of bleach) then we have to get involved?
Fifth, how about a Congressional vote...like Bush did before Afghanistan AND Iraq? Clinton bombed Iraq as he faced impeachment...a clear “wag the dog” moment, without Congressional approval. Obama, I think, is also using this as a distraction.
OK, you raise several good points. I stand corrected :) The only point I disagree with is not getting involved just because Syria is not “of use” as a resource, bargaining chip, leverage, etc...
Beyond that, you’ve convinced me.
I guess Barry the Serpent was a little upset when the British back out of the Syria war.
