France considers Isis strikes as Hollande calls for engagement on refugee crisis | World news | The Guardian

France will begin reconnaissance flights over Syria with a view to carrying out airstrikes against Islamic State, President François Hollande has said.

He blamed the group for the refugee crisis in Europe as well as a number of terrorist attacks carried out in France and other countries. However, the French leader ruled out sending ground troops to Syria and said nothing should be done that could strengthen the country's leader, Bashar al-Assad, or help him remain in power. "In the end, Assad must go," Hollande said.

So there is no strategy for any definite outcome, much less commitment (which would need ground troops). In other words, he still believes that real problems can be combated with PR (even if deadly PR).
