    my point, though, is that he's grandstanding on Syria and that his pronouncements have a domestic policy context. He knows that the French can't go it alone, and that the zeal for intervention isn't "there" yet in the UK or US (let alone among regional actors), so he can become the romantic figure. May well backfire...
