Okay, they haven't come out and actually said it, but the implication's pretty clear.
Earlier Thursday, France said the international community would need to respond forcefully if allegations proved true that the Syrian government was responsible for chemical attacks on civilians.
Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius told French television network BFM that a decision would be made "in other ways" if the U.N. Security Council couldn't arrive at one, but he didn't specify the alternatives.
Thus far, Russia and China have vetoed everything that's come before the "U.N. Security Council", although Russia's now telling Assad over there in Syria that he might oughta let inspectors in there to poke around for a while. Why, even Ban Ki-moon, who's evidently some sort of hotshot in the U.N., is telling Assad he'd better let inspectors inspect "without delay", so things are obviously getting pretty heated up over there in the NYC vipers' nest. It won't be long before a strongly-worded memo's sent.
No rush, though; Allah will sort it out.
