Madness!

fallon

Michael Fallon is seriously suggesting the RAF should be bombing ISIL in Syria. This is crazy talk. How long since the House was outraged by Assad’s use of barrel bombs and chemical weapons against the Arab Spring uprising? Now the Defence Secretary thinks it’s a good idea to destroy Assad’s enemies for him. This kind of mindless dabbling, without a clear end-game, has got our fingers burnt so many times in the past, but still we don’t learn.  Remember when we armed the Taliban to keep the Russians at bay?  Remember when we armed Saddam to keep Iran in check?
