BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:00 A.M.) – The White House issued a statement on Sunday that confirmed a joint discussion between U.S. President Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron regarding the reported chemical weapons attack in the East Ghouta town of Douma over the weekend.

“Both leaders strongly condemned the horrific chemical weapons attacks in Syria and agreed that the Assad regime must be held accountable for its continued human rights abuses,” the White House statement read.

The statement would then go onto say that Trump and Macron agreed to issue a “strong, joint response” to this Douma attack.

“They agreed to exchange information on the nature of the attacks and coordinate a strong, joint response,” the statement concluded.

Neither France nor the U.S. has attacked any of the Syrian government’s military installation yet; however, it is likely that they will strike in the coming days.

Russia has taught the French a hard lesson or two not so long ago, and it won’t be any different this time.

Which “hard lessons”? Do you mean interfering in national elections by funding LePen’s far right party?

Is La France exceptionalnessist too? Have You proof or just another smear campaign. Where is the law that forbids to donate money for a favourable result of a foreign election.

Beware. The Poitou donkey will be harnessed to the Zionist war-wagon like in 1914-1918.

p.s. Russia does as the US do?

Not even, Gonçalo : this is just BS-talk to please the Yankees in exchane of some favour, maybe having Lockheed taken out of the competition for Belgium’s fighter jets or some bias in this style.
From the start of the Syrian s**t, French Govt seems supportive to the US while actually doing nothing, there are no reasons for it to change, especially as the military s on very tight budget.

Russia can just raise French gas price. That would be a hard lesson.

No mon ami, this is Your wishful thinking. Macron and Merkel have been harnessed to the war wagon of the 5 eyes again.

Well, it is an “encore une fois” for France and a First time for Germany. 91% of Germans still feel that Russia is no danger to Europe.

The agreed upon procedure is called punishment before investigation.
It is illegal in all civilised nations. But these two Lords of Humankind need no proof. They have decided already to possibly start WW III.

Macron has suffered a massive slump in the polls in France recently. He’ll be hoping to make a rebound by playing big man in the international arena! And all this is after the last French President’s government and Britain made a hash in Libya.

Western politicians are immoral and mad just like Hitler in the 1930s. It is a historical process. The West will be defeated by good people and then China will become a new superpower. The wind of change is blowing faster and faster.

Look at his hands – small but also a ring on both right and left hand !!!!!

This **** is out of the same mould as the likes of Trudeau, Blair and other vermin.

If France steps over the line and kills one Syrian or ally, I want them eliminated.
