France: You Totally Have to Fight the Wars You Don't Want to Fight But Which We Want You to Fight, and Not Fight the Wars You Want to Fight But Which We Don't Want You to Fight

TBOTFGs.

France’s foreign minister said Thursday that “a reaction of force must be taken” if Syrian activists’ claims that the government has used chemical weapons outside the capital, Damascus, are confirmed.

France’s foreign minister said Thursday that force must be used reaction of force must be taken” if Syrian activists’ claims that the government has used chemical weapons outside the capital, Damascus, are confirmed. …

Is there anywhere France isn't commanding us to fight, apart from Iraq?

Meanwhile, our UN Ambassador, who claims to be steely-eyed on Fightin' Genocide, skipped out on an emergency UN Security Council meeting on, yes, the alleged chemical weapons attack in Syria.

She sent a lower-ranking delegate.

The Best and The Brightest, kids. The best and the brightest.

A U.S. mission official told Fox News that Power was on a “pre-arranged trip” and maintained that she was focusing closely on the Syria attack.

Stolen from Hot Air, Richard Grenell hammers on Powers.

So the U.S. policy on Syria is to work thru the United Nations. Where was Samantha Power?

Earnest even emphasized the emergency meeting in his statement: “We have also called for urgent consultations in the UN Security Council to discuss these allegations”.

But while the White House was pretending to be in urgent mode, the new U.S. Ambassador didn’t think the meeting was worth her time. Her office reportedly told Reuters that she was on a trip. But to where? What was more important?

Samantha Power has been on the job exactly 19 days. In that time, she’s already traveled from New York to Los Angeles to deliver a speech.

More at the link but it's a short post and I can't just lift it all.
