They know full well that rebel jihadi forces have been involved in chemical weapons use, obviously the actual facts matter little to the UK-US governments now.

Royal Navy vessels are being readied to take part in a possible series of cruise missile strikes, alongside the United States, as military commanders finalise a list of potential targets.

Government sources said talks between the Prime Minister and international leaders, including Barack Obama, would continue, but that any military action that was agreed could begin within the next week.

As the preparations gathered pace, William Hague, the Foreign Secretary, warned that the world could not stand by and allow the Assad regime to use chemical weapons against the Syrian people “with impunity”.

Britain, the US and their allies must show Mr Assad that to perpetrate such an atrocity “is to cross a line and that the world will respond when that line is crossed”, he said.

British forces now look likely to be drawn into an intervention in the Syrian crisis after months of deliberation and international disagreement over how to respond to the bloody two-year civil war.

  1. Libya’s Qaddafi was more then cooperating with the West. Yet he was toppled and the country reduced to chaos. Ditto Iraq.

    The policy of the West since 9/11 has been very carefully thought out. Unable to wage war on nation states such Japan and Germany after Pearl Harbour, the policy I believe has been to destabilize all Muslim nations not closely tied to the apron strings of the West. To be content that sharia is installed after our intervention, kn owing full well, that a sharia run country will soon become a basket case, reliant on the West just to eat. The policy is to discredit and defeat political Islam, and thus the whole of Islam.

  2. “obviously the actual facts matter little to the UK-US governments now.”
    if ever.
    most of the dis-united kingdom’s recent legislation is based on outright lies and the scum wonder why we hate them.
