The UN is convinced that CW have been used, but no definitive evidence has been used as to who the perpetrators were. Russia submitted a draft resolution to allow for an independent investigation. Just because it didn't include an attribution clause, the US/UK and Fra voted against it. Are you suggesting that all independent investigations are pre-conditioned with attribution clauses? You do understand that in the absence of conclusive evidence, or evidence beyond reasonable doubt, that an attribution clause is simply an allegation?
