The Security Council has authorized a 300-member mission. U.N. peacekeeping chief Herve Ladsous said Tuesday 30 observers could be in place by the end of the week and 100 within a month.
But on Wednesday, French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe called on the United Nations to deploy the full contingent within 15 days, saying the U.N.-backed truce that took effect April 12 has been "seriously compromised."
Juppe said France has discussed with other world powers the prospect of imposing a resolution under Chapter 7 of the U.N. charter, which allows for the use of force to "restore international peace and security."
Russia and China have twice vetoed Western- and Arab-backed Security Council resolutions calling for punitive action against Assad's government for violently suppressing the revolt against his rule.
Mid-East Arab Petrodespots, famed for barbaric treatment of their people, cry out for action against a Syria that is secular and that is threatened by Israel.
And in America AIPAC drives the Israeli-American effort to destabilize, neutralize and impose western control on Syria.
And in France French President Sarkozy, a Jew and a strong supporter of Israel, is subject to defeat by Presidential challenger Hollande, who leads Sarkozy at this time, and who promises to withdraw French troops from Afghanistan,
and who is almost certain to oppose French intervention in Syria.
Sarkozy, eager to score for Israel while he can, thus beats the war drum while he can and thus calls for strong, military type western interference in the domestic affairs of Syria
