They cannot produce evidence, but keep on saying that the 'red line' has been crossed and they cannot wait any longer...
The use of force without the approval of the United Nations Security Council is a very grave violation of international law...
If anybody thinks that bombing and destroying the Syrian military infrastructure, and leaving the battlefield for the opponents of the regime to win, would end everything - that is an illusion.

How about we let the UN inspectors actually inspect something? Who knows, maybe they'll find something?
Moscow has paid serious attention to the remarks of US defense minister Chuck Hagel about measures requested by president Barack Obama to secure readiness of the US army to launch a military action against Syria at any moment. We are alarmed by demands from Paris, London and other capitals to respond decisively to alleged chemical attacks by the Syrian armed forces in eastern Ghouta on August, 21 while ignoring many facts showing the attacks were a provocation from the irreconcilable opposition.
All this makes us recall the events from ten years ago, when using false information about Iraq’s possession of WMD as a pretext, the US embarked on shady enterprises the consequences of which are well-known to everyone.
We are again calling for everyone not to repeat mistakes of the past, not to allow actions violating international laws. Any unilateral actions in ignorance of the UN will undermine the international community’s efforts to find a diplomatic solution of the Syrian crisis.
