UPDATE: 26 June 2013 — UK’s Prime Minister seems to be determined to go ahead with supporting the rebels. He is planning to hold a meeting between the spy chief, Ed Milliband the Labour leader and himself. This rare move of the Mr Cameron’s top briefing by the National Security Council is designed to win Mr Milliband support for forcing out Syrian Bashar Assad.
UPDATE: 22 June 2013 — Coming a meeting in Doha is planned to discuss and decide whether to give support to the rebels. The countries will be US, Britain, France, Germany, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Jordan. Already in advance the rebels received a quantity of new weapons and they stated that it was from the US. The rebels had recently some major defeats but hope now to turn the situation around.
Rumours running wild about chemical weapons and it looks like a copy of the time before the Iraq War. At that time Mr Bush and his government sworn blind Iraq are stock piling chemical weapons. The pressure increased and at the end ex-Prime minister Tony Blair fell for it and entered a war with the USA against Iraq. Eventually, when they conquered Iraq no chemical weapons were found. Both Mr Bush and Mr Blair were never brought to justice in for being responsible of causing death, maiming and destruction in a country were they had no right to declare war.
Now again it seems a repeat of the same situation. It is surprising that President Obama would repeat the same message that Syria’s President Bashar Assad uses chemical weapons. A few weeks ago it was said that the rebels using chemical weapons which ever is the truth it will most probably never be known. However, it was also revealed Al-Qaeda is infiltrating the rebels to back them would be backing a terrorists group which the whole world is fighting against. If all these information spread around has any footing at all it would be wise to stay out of the whole conflict.
Why is Britain so hell bend to get involved again? There supposed to be a low economy in this country and the public is pressure into more austerity yet no hesitation in getting involved into another costly war which could even escalate into a widespread war.
If there ever was any irresponsibility shown from the government it will be this time. Foreign secretary William Hague and PM David Cameron are determined for months to enter the Syrian civil war with again an accusation of chemical weapons. Britain did not look victorious in the Iraq war, Libya and nor is it in Afghanistan. Therefore the question being asked and remains – Why getting involved again only because Russia and American wanting another play-ground.
Every time these super powers and are not that glorious any more wanting another war game it cost nothing but lives, injuries with getting maimed for lives and horrendous amount of money which none of these countries can afford. So where is the sense and responsibility to their people at all?
A lesson should have been learned with Libya where the West was backing the so called rebels or freedom fighters. The moment they were in power they turned their back on the West. Murdered the American Embassy staff, destroyed graves of the British fallen soldiers and never released the Lockerbie bombers or revealed any information
Mr Newark stated that Britain has a moral obligation to step in. How on earth did Mr Newark arrive at an idea like that? What moral obligation has Britain got towards Syria to scarify again their soldiers and huge amount of money at the time where British people starve and have to go to food-banks and have to make decisions whether to heat their homes or buy food.
David Cameron who has a meeting with the Russian President Vladimir Putin tomorrow at 10 Down Street is believed to back the US. Since it has been already hinted that the rebels are infiltrated by Al Qaeda it is sheer madness and irresponsibility to back them.
