French Senior Socialist Demands Government "Not Bow To Calls" For Syria Attack Vote | Zero Hedge | Unthinking respect for authority is the greatest enemy of truth. | Scoop.it

While the US pro-strike coalition is crumbling following last week's UK vote that dealt a humiliating blow to PM Cameron, followed by NATO, and most recently by Germany announcing it would not take part in a military action against Syria, it was time for a lonely voice of support for Obama's delayed "surgical strike" request to the global community which Syria promptly called a "historic American defeat." It came from France where a senior government Socialist and chief of the foreign affair committee, Elisabeth Guigou, announced the government should not bow to calls from opposition figures to have lawmakers vote on whether to take military action in Syria.
