Intervention will escalate the war
THE facts about the reported use of chemical weapons in Syria remain unclear. The intelligence forces investigating these reports are the same people who brought us the tales of Weapons Of Mass Destruction in Iraq. Predictably, David Cameron and William Hague want to join the USA in using these reports as a pretext to attack Syria.
An attack by USA and Britain isn't being planned to help the Syrian people but to try to ensure that the outcome of the civil war suits the USA and Britain.
Along with the USA, Britain has already brought death and destruction to Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya. For the past two years our Government has backed various forms of financial, military and surveillance intervention in Syria. This has been done in conjunction with undemocratic regimes such as Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
Now we are told that there should be more intervention. At every stage, outside intervention has helped escalate the civil war.

All the indications are that an attack by the USA and Britain will have the same effect, probably leading to the war spilling over into neighbouring countries.
A recent poll in The Observer showed that fewer than a quarter of people in Britain are in favour of military intervention in Syria. There is a widespread sense that what happened in Afghanistan and Iraq was wrong and that those wars have only brought further war, dislocation and death. Let's hope that in today's debate in Parliament, MPs speak out against this proposed attack on Syria.
