French PM: Assad could strike again if no one acts

PARIS (AP) - France’s prime minister made a passionate appeal today for intervention in Syria, placing the blame for a chemical attack on Syrian President Bashar Assad and warning that inaction would let him carry out more atrocities. Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault addressed the French National Assembly at the beginning of a debate on the wisdom and necessity of a French military response. Today’s debate will end without a vote - since President Francois Hollande can order a military operation without one - but it was part of his government’s delicate dance to rev up support at home for an unpopular intervention.
