France supports Obama
British Parliament may have wussed out, but France supports Obama. This is a big shift in French politics from back in the 1980s when France wouldn’t let our planes flyover France en route to bombing Libya. Maybe having a Nobel Peace Prize helps.

Obama has completely lost any element of surprise with respect to this attack, but I guess U.S. armed forces don’t need surprise any more than Mike Tyson would need surprise in order to give a little kid a well-deserved spanking.
