'Syria's red line' - Special edition of the France 24 Debate [#F24Debate] on Friday March 14th 7:10pm CET

Latest update : 2014-03-13

France 24 will broadcast a special edition of the France 24 Debate [#F24Debate] on Friday March 14th 7:10pm CET.

The international community made it clear not to cross the “the red line”. But on August 21st, 2013, Damascus citizens were victims of a chemical weapon attack.

France and the US threatened immediate airstrikes, and after many days of back and forth, Syria finally caved in, agreeing to destroy its stock of chemical weapons.

Why did Washington and Paris decide not to strike? How did Bashar al-Assad manage to save face with the support of Russia?

Behind-the-scene players and witnesses tell France 24 about the events that could have changed the course of history.

TV viewers and web users can also comment on social networks via dedicated hashtags in French, in English and in Arabic : #F24Debate , #DébatF24 and نقاش24#.
