The French & Turks, unlike Obama, realize that a delay will only give the Assad regime time to move their chemical weapons stockpile ( or hiding them underground ) making cruise missiles and drones ineffective.

Don't worry .... The US, Britain, France, Israel as well as Turkey have a close eye on Syria (thanks to their military spy satellites).

They will know very well where to strike, and they have the weapons to destroy them!

I would argue, from a military point of view, it is even excellent what happened, because they perhaps did not know for 100% where the best weapon hardware of Syrians (incl. Chemical & Biological) was hidden ..... now when the Syrians have moved them .... now they know very well where they are deposited ....

And even if they can't take them out .... well, they will direct the "Rebels" to do it .....

Nothing will be changed upon the America's social grief..
Many have lost their sons and loved ones in this caos called superiority..
And I don't think they'll give a damn shit if their loved ones are gone forever upon the universal indirect attacks to USA..and vice versa..
There is crisis because nothing is being shaped for anyone anymore..

I THINK AMERICA WILL BE FOUND IN NORMAL HEALTHY POLITICAL GROUND AFTER COUPLE OF GENERATIONS..

if it would come to war, Syrians should attack another countries, not Turkey and France, it is only false attraction to load out arsenals. Syrians should attack Saudi Arabia and Israel, oil fields in Saudi Arabia-let it burn just like in Iraq, military bases . It is just like war Iraq-Iran, what has caused end of this war: somebody who was wise, has think out that he leads to stop of oil-output and war was over.

The Syrians are simply doing their Iranian masters bidding. Iran can't afford for this conflict to get out of control since they know they are next. Iran is desperately trying to hold onto Lebanon through Hezbollah and Syria through Baby Assad. Iran has assured Putin his warm water port in Syria is safe in Iranian (Assad's) hands. Putin will place as much pressure on the US not to attack to maintain the status quo.

Its amazing how people continuously put Israel in the same sentence as the US.
Erdogan is the reason that Israel and Turkey aren't allies anymore. He arrested hundred throughout the army, media and such, he is creating a Muslim country.
He blaming Jews for the problems in Egypt, called Israel illegal and much more with a simple search online. Anyone who claims Erdogan is allied with Israel should expect the men in the white coats to turn up.
no no the whole TR Israel tension is for show, Erdogan has to look good for the religious fools who vote for him, his base. Dont believe the hype.

Where is Marine Corp Pat and his gay battalion when Obama needs them?
French-Turkish coalition is nothing new. In 1922, the French had decided to pull out from their mandate in Anatolian as incorporated under the terms of the Treaty of Sevres and decided to supply weapons and ammunition to the Kemalist forces.
