They just got a different tool to use than we do: They kill innocent lives to achieve objectives. That's what they do. And they're good. They get on the TV screens and they get people to ask questions about, well, you know, this, that or the other. I mean, they're able to kind of say to people: Don't come and bother us, because we will kill you. Bush - Joint News Conference with Blair - 28 July '06

US knows it all, readies for war

The likelihood of the US presenting its evidence to the UN security council is remote indeed; they would  run the risk of exposing to the world just how threadbare the case for war is. Even Hollande might be forced to run a mile. The US knows what it knows and that's that, not even the UN inspectors can tell them anything they don't know already, according to Kerry. That's an odd statement even for him. But typical of the US approach to  due diligence where war is concerned. Britain is out of it thankfully - though that might change in the future.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has declared ‘utter nonsense’ the idea that the Syrian government has used chemical weapons on its own people and called on the US to present its supposed evidence to the UN Security Council. Link

France is the US's oldest ally - bonne chance with that
