BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:30 P.M.) – French President Emmanuel Macron stated on Tuesday that his country will strike Syrian government targets if the allegations of chemical weapons usage is proven.

“On chemical weapons, I set a red line and I reaffirm that red line,” Macron told reporters, as quoted by the Reuters News Agency.

“If we have proven evidence that chemical weapons proscribed in treaties are used, we will strike the place where they are made,” Macron continued.

However, Macron did state that his country has not yet confirmed that chemical weapons have been used.

“Today, our agencies, our armed forces have not established that chemical weapons, as set out in treaties, have been used against the civilian population,” Macron concluded.

French President invites Jihadi to fake chemical weapon attack so that France can join the war against Syria. Did not we have that before from the US?

Actually, he also said this : 1.) Proofs will be required 2.) He might strike WHOEVER uses chemical weapons.. Thus idiots doing false flags might get some serious blowbacks… 3.) And Rafales would be very devastating on HTS : the ILGR guided rocket allows to stay out of range of ManPADS/AA-guns while they’re carried in pods of 12. Carrying 17 of such pods is no problem. Thus, at the difference of Su-25 or A-10, you stay out of harm’s way while being able to demolish huge number of targets, each ILGR being as kickass as most powerful ATGMs. ISIS is… Read more »

Not at all Vincenzo :
read again :
“Today, our agencies, our armed forces have not established that chemical weapons, as set out in treaties, have been used against the civilian population,” Macron concluded

And he also said “whoever” will be proven using chemical… It’s pretty different from a Trump accusing without proof!

Who the h**l does this guy think he is?
Gives himself permission to bomb a foreign country that isn’t attacking him nor anyone else, but desperately defending itself against hordes of US/UK/Saudi/Turkey-backed fanatics.
This creep outdoes the craven, treacherous UK in its betrayal of secular enlightenment.
And he must know that he’s just given carte-blanche to some jihadist nutcases to poison some of their own kids and then blame it on the Syrians.

Read AGAIN the article and do a little research too… And in another speech, he pointed that whoever would be PROVEN using chemicals will be hammered. Syrian govt is NOT using chemicals, he also said this in his speech… So, if the roaches do a false flag, this means it’s likely to backfire! AMN is falling at the level of Brit Daily-Express with clickbait tittles, it’s pitiful to distort news this way! Who this guy is? Oh, just the leader of a permanent UNSC member state. Let me remember you that there is a global ban on chemical weapons lasting… Read more »

The tittle of the article is really a clickbait. Actually, he clearly states if chemical attacks are PROVEN but, as Syrian govt simply doesn’t uses such weapons, this simply won’t happen! And he also already said a few months ago : “whoever will use chemical weapons”… It’s not about the Syrian govt. alone. As we all know that Nusra used such shits and are likely to do some false flag again, such acts can back-fire the hard way… France beginning to chase HTS/Nusra has serious potential to happen… No surprise the French language is so praised for diplomacy : there… Read more »
