Off To War We Go Again

Government wins vote on airstrikes in Syria by majority of 174. Some 397 MPs were in favour, and 223 against.
Here we go again then and stand by for the shallow mantra that we have to support our lads over there 'getting the job done' as was much used in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya to try and browbeat those of us against these wars.
To use an often muttered quote 'Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it' and sadly the people who make the decisions never seem to remember our other folly's over the past decade in that region so it's many more years of terror to continue in the Middle East and in the Worlds capitals.
Sad day indeed for Britain and an even worse one for those innocents caught beneath British bombs.
