Here we go again! Oh what a lovely war! Yippeee!

As David “Winston” Cameron desperately tries to get his own Middle East war to make himself look like a great international statesman similar to his hero “war criminal” Blair, we should question his reasons for getting Britain involved in yet another pointless war in a predominantly Muslim country.

1. Cameron and our other great military genius Wee Willie Hague claim that they know the Syrian government is responsible for a chemical weapons attack. Interesting. Cameron probably hopes that we’ve all forgotten what happened in August 2008. A brief military conflict broke out in South Ossetia between Georgia and Russia. Cameron (then leader of the opposition) travelled to Georgia to show his support for the Georgian government against what he called “Russian aggression” and condemned Russia for carrying out “appalling atrocities”. Sounds familiar? Here’s Cameron meeting the Georgian president:

But a later international investigation led by a Swiss diplomat found that Georgia had started the war. “Open hostilities began with a large-scale Georgian military operation against the town of Tskhinvali and the surrounding areas, launched in the night of 7 to 8 August 2008”, the report concluded. I don’t remember Cameron ever apologising for getting that one hopelessly wrong. And now this Bulingdonian buffoon claims once again that he knows who is responsible. Why should we believe him this time?

2. If you look at a map of the world, you’ll see that Britain is just a tiny, bankrupt island. So why is Winston Cameron puffing himself up to be the moral conscience of the world and the world’s policeman? Could it be because he hopes that a wave of patriotism, as our courageous troops give a good bashing to the awful Assad, will distract our attention from his government’s economic incompetence? Could it be because he hopes a quick war will make him look like a great international statesman compared to the puny, puerile, pitiful Ed Miliband? Does Cameron want a few people killed in the belief that this will help him win the 2015 election?

3. Has he thought through the consequences? Once again Britain will be hated throughout the Muslim world. There will probably be attacks against British interests and even in Britain. Meanwhile Iran will learn that, unless it has nuclear weapons, it too will always be vulnerable to attack from the West under whatever spurious reason Western leaders dream up.

I’m incredulous that our leaders have learnt nothing from Iraq and Afghanistan about what happens when British troops get mired in tribal and religious conflicts that have been going on for over a thousand years and will probably carry on for another thousand years.

We don’t want your war, Mr Cameron. Syria is not our problem. We are bankrupt – the Arab League have lots of money, lots of troops and lots of weapons (that we sold them). Let them sort it out.

But I suppose the problem is that useless Cameron and warmongering cretin Hague have made so many belligerent statements, that they have to send a few British missiles to kill some Syrians otherwise Cameron and Hague will lose face. That’s not a very good reason to start a war.

    I’m not entirely sure Cameron wants to win the next election. His main mission seems to be to destroy the conservative party. If labour didn’t have such a pathetic geek running the show they’d be streets ahead.

    This Government’s brilliant strategy is to embark on a policy of
    reducing the numbers in our armed forces ,and then, while we are still committed in
    Afghanistan go and look for another war.
