Not having had a war for a couple of years, David Cameron and Barack Obama have had a 40 minute phone-call about starting another one in the Middle East.
David Cameron and Barack Obama have both agreed that last week's chemical weapon attacks merits a 'serious response' after concluding that Bashar al-Assad was almost certainly responsible for the assault that killed as many as 1,400 people in Damascus last week.
'The Prime Minister and President Obama are both gravely concerned by the attack that took place in Damascus on Wednesday' said the Prime Ministers spokesman, 'and the increasing signs that this was a significant chemical weapons attack carried out by the Syrian regime against its own people. The UN security council has called for immediate access for UN investigators on the ground in Damascus. The fact that President Assad has failed to co-operate with the UN suggests that the regime has something to hide'.
The justification for us killing lots of innocent Syrians will be that the Syrian regime will not cooperate with the UN Inspectors which has a very familiar ring to it, especially as we have no evidence the al-Assad regime were actually behind the attack except the UK and US suspecting it and we know how good that intelligence has been recently.
Ramping up the rhetoric on the Syria defying the UN angle, US secretary of state, John Kerry, has told the Damascus government that they should let UN inspectors have access to the site of the alleged gas attack and 'if the Syrian regime has nothing to hide, it should allow immediate and unimpeded access to the site rather than continuing to attack the affected area to block access and destroy evidence'.
So another war seems imminent with Americans and Brits bravely bombing from thousands of feet up in the air or sending missiles from the sea hundreds of miles away in the name of a humanitarian intervention.
The general consensus of people i have spoken to seems to be we shouldn't be involved as it is nothing to do with us but as the momentum builds and the march to war has been set in motion by the invaders agreeing on the Chemical weapons and defying the UN angle, we can expect anyone that doesn't swallow the UK and US Government line will be branded an Assad-loving, lefty, paranoid, conspiracy theorist and any evidence that contradicts it will be summarily ignored and we know this because this is the way all our horrific wars since 9/11 have been conducted.
