Emmanuel Macron and Theresa May were put in the crosshairs by their own parliaments Monday for failing to secure a UN mandate – or even a parliamentary debate – before ordering missile strikes against Syria.

British Prime Minister Theresa May faced criticism from numerous MPs for failing to seek parliamentary approval before attacking Syria on Saturday. Speaking before the Commons, with May sitting nearby, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn "reminded" the prime minister that she is "accountable to this Parliament, not to the whims of the US President." Corbyn pointed out that May's "predecessor came to this House to seek authority for military action in Libya and in Syria in 2015, and the House had a vote over Iraq in 2003," adding that "we clearly need a War Powers Act in this country to transform a now broken convention into a legal obligation."

Corbyn said during his remarks on Monday:

There is no more serious issue than the life and death matters of military action. It is right that Parliament has the power to support or stop the Government from taking planned military action.
