Mr Cameron, could you remind us – who are the good guys?

These are Sunnis (or they might be Shiites):

These are Shiites (or they might be Sunnis):

This is what happens when Sunnis and Shiites get together:

I believe most people in Britain haven’t a clue which are which: why they hate each other and why Britain should get involved in their internecine slaughter.

But our great leaders, David “Winston” Cameron and William “Winston” Hague, are salivating at the prospect of sending British arms to help one lot kill the other lot. Also, British troops are apparently in Jordan on “military exercises” and I’ve no doubt that Cameron and Hague are hoping to manufacture a “provocation” that will give them the excuse to send British troops into Syria. Then they can have their own Middle East war and become “great international statesmen”  just like their hero Tony Blair.

At the moment the US is claiming it has evidence Assad has used chemical weapons. So, here’s a picture of Colin Powell from about 20 years ago assuring the UN that Saddam Hussein had chemical weapons:

Oh, and remember this?

Cameron and Hague, we don’t believe your lies and we don’t want your war. Let the Sunnis and Shiites slaughter each other over their differing interpretations of the Koran. Who knows, maybe in a few hundred years they might realise that they’ve been wasting their time and the whole thing was totally pointless? But in the meantime, it’s none of our business – it’s up to the Arab League to sort out the mess.

    From memory David, the ones in the second picture of yours above (covered in blood), are the shites…

    But, here’s the thing, and I agree with all of your other points, this is not about religion… this stuff predates Islam by centuries… The Iraqis have always been fighting amongst themselves, and they have the longest written history on earth, going back some 9,000 years…

    This is tribal, and it is much more serious.

    It might even be like football…

    A matter of life and death… Apologies to Mr. Shankley.

    How much longer will it be before our leaders realise that we can no longer
    take a leading role in foreign affairs? The days of empire are over.
    We are a small bankrupt island off Europe, and their efforts should be concentrated
    on fixing the many things that are wrong at home.

  • David – I agree with you. And John Fields,(above comment) who sums it up nicely.
