France said Tuesday it would submit a UN Security Council resolution calling on Syria to put its chemical weapons beyond use or face "extremely serious" reprisals.

French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius, who announced the move at a press conference, said the resolution would demand that the individuals responsible for the attack be put on trial at the International Criminal Court.
Fabius said it would also demand full disclosure by Assad's regime of its weapons programme, and that the arsenal be placed immediately under international control and then dismantled.

It’s a giant staredown contest, and no one believes Mr. Present will win that versus Putin. 0zer0 is so being played that it isn’t even funny anymore.
