DAVID CAMERON DITCHES PLAN TO ARM SYRIAN REBELS – Military chiefs warned the Prime Minister that no real benefit could be accrued from arming the Syrian Rebels and the only solution would be all out war; although that’s really not an option either.

For months the Prime Minister, David Cameron, along with William Hague have been pushing for an end to EU embargos on Syrian that would allow the British Government to arm Syrian Rebels.
The Syrian Prime Minister has been labeled a genocidal maniac due to the use of chemical weapons against the rebels. The U.S also wants to see the rebels armed and yet some other countries, notably Russia have fiercely opposed such intervention.
It really makes no sense to the British public why David Cameron would want to provide arms to what has widely known ties to Al Qaeda terrorists. Are we not supposed to be fighting against terrorism?
The UK’s top military chief, General Sir David Richards has told the Prime Minister that any intervention would have no positive effect unless the UK declared war on the Assad regime.
Of course the British taxpayer is still suffering from the effects of Iraqi, an illegal war instigated by George W. Bush and backed up by Tony Blair.
With the British economy still in a recession and with austerity measures at an all time high, we simply cannot afford another war that would most likely result in a long drawn out conflict with no benefits other than helping terrorists’ success in a plot to over-throw its Government; however right that might be.
The alternative now is that the British Government are looking to help train and advise the ‘moderate’ elements of the opposing Bashar al-Assad forces and yet with intelligence services already stretched to the limit I wonder how the ‘moderates’ will be determined from the ‘radical’ Islamic fundamentalists that want us all converted or better yet dead.

The atrocities that Assad and his Government have leveled on the people are without doubt horrifying, but should the British Government have the right to intervene? Isn’t it time that our Government started to look at and fix the problems within our own borders before we champion a cause in another?
Do you think the British Government should arm the Syrian Rebels or should we stay out of a conflict that has nothing to do with us? Leave your comments below.
