Common sense prevails at Westminster.

Only by 13 votes mind . . . and Cameron is still thinking of holding another debate "after the UN findings are completed".

Appears that there may be yet another Open Vote at Westminster in the very near future about whether to committ the UK to blasting Syria.

Sounds like the "best of three" to me.

That has been ruled out by Government sources AND Cleggy, so it will have to be a "Yes Prime Minister"/"Thick of It" scale turnaround, though.

Cameron and Clegg have painted themselves into a corner. Suppose evidence comes to light showing that Assad's cronies have launched yet another chem. attack?

Think Eddie Milliebandana's worth will drop lower than a whore's drawers if that were proven.
Cleggy and the Cameroon chap both voted FOR action. . . Millie and his buddies voted NAY. . .
Tricky to get away from that fact.

I see Obama is cosying up to the frenchie Hollande at the G2 Summit - thus leaving Cameroon out in the cold.

Yep, all of them . . .
errr, all that is except Tony Blair . . . who is on a wanted Russian oligarch's yacht anchored somewhere outside Monte Carlo, counting his ill-gained dosh.

So once again the US goes to war on the base of no conclusive evidence, dragging the UK and France along for the ride.
Just waiting for the announcement from Turnbull, that Australia will be sending troops to support their Allies. Rolling Eyes

This has nothing to do with a possible chemical weapon attack by Syria but everything to do with the current US & UK with France versus Russia diplomatic stand off.

Causes complex but decision seems very poor and future very concerning.

Propaganda war intense.

It's all very depressing.

Even if Assad is eventually deposed, the American backed rebels are no better. They are just as barbarous. What the dumbarse yanks don't understand is that democracy doesnt work in the middle east. There is no democracy in Islam. These countries need strong dictators to keep the tribes & factions in order. If Trump intervenes in Syria it will just create another flood of refugees polluting western countries. The west should keep out & let them sort themselves out like they have been doing for centuries.

There is a genuine dilemma, I think.

But bombing is a blunt, barbaric instrument. Which kills, wounds & distresses the innocent more than the hardened (similarly) zero-empathy rulers.

Should Assad not be forced to check his bodyguard instead? Not that I am advocating ... (necessarily...)

The Middle East is a lost cause for a generation or more. I donít see what any Western military action is going to achieve, other than poking various crocodiles with shitty sticks... unfortunate for the innocent civilians but itís not our problem. Let Russia and others get involved if they want to, itís only likely to cost them in the long term.

What we call the middle east has been a lost cause since 1200bce. Or 1900bce if you're into the old testament.

Similar to lardy's US guns solution (confine them with a wall and let them shoot themselves into oblivion) perhaps we could ring-fence everything from Israel across to Iran, and Syria down to Egypt and let them sort out their differences themselves.
