IT’S A VICTORY FOR DEMOCRACY..

By David Vance On August 30th, 2013

Lest some get too carried away about the result in the Commons, spare a thought for these human beings. They are soon to be growing in number.

Still, Miliband “won” and here is why he “won”….

As Peter pointed out in a previous thread, Syria is a nasty civil war and no one will be a winner, all will lose. Yes, I too opposed any action BUT I see no cause for celebration.

  1. There is no cause for celebration. There are innocent people being killed in Syria and the most likely (if not yet proven) culprit in terms of chemical weapons is Assad. Those people are also beset by lunatic Islamic factions which is a further reason why even those of us happy with the result in the UK can’t be exchanging high fives and shouts of glee.

    We should also discuss at what point is action required? If it were established that Assad was using chemical weapons and was to use them again in greater frequency and with more devastating effect, does the World sit back and merely watch in horror?

    Well said.

    The HoC should have waited for the UN findings on who used the chemical weapons. If it was Syrian govt forces, then we would have at least seen who believes the ban is worthless and is prepared to look on as a government slaughters its own people.

    The opposition in Syria certainly isn’t an attractive alternative. But at the moment it’s difficult to see how it could be worse than wholesale massacre.

  3. The Al Queda cutthroats / rebels may be a whole lot worse than ” not attractive ” for Syrians, including Kurdish and Christian Syrians, and for the region and world.
