Threat of Commons revolt forces allies to delay missile strike -


Allied air strikes against the Syrian government over the alleged use of chemical weapons could be delayed until next week in the face of strong opposition in the UK parliament to British involvement in immediate military action.

The prime minister, David Cameron, conceded that MPs would be given a second vote to approve military action to defuse a parliamentary revolt, ahead of a Commons debate on Syria on Thursday. Whitehall sources indicated that the US, which had planned to launch the strikes by the weekend, is prepared to revive a back-up plan to delay the strikes until Tuesday when Barack Obama is due to set out for the G20 summit in Russia.

Such a move by the Obama administration would effectively hand Cameron a political lifeline after the opposition Labour party threatened to inflict a defeat on the Conservative-led coalition in parliament.


This entire fiasco makes me sick, but at least there are a few MP's who are opposing it, not that it really matters I think, Cameron and Obama will get their way eventually

It's about time someone put the breaks on this. It was all moving too fast. You can't start bombing another country without 100% proof of their guilt in using chemical weapons.

Even if the UN inspectors find it was Assad, its still not the UKs right or job to go in all guns blazing.

Yet another pirouette from our man Cameron, all the bullishness of a ballet dancer.

But thank heavens common sense seems to be prevaling and our Government is actually going to wait for some evidence.

Imagine if someone thought the UK had used chemical weapons in one of its 'little interferences' in another sovereign state and decided to launch a missile strike on London???

I wish the UK would quietly wind down its interventions, focus on useful aid, where needed, deal with the mounting problems in this country and cut the banks here down to a size they can be managed.

then who does it fall to?

As for the others who keep dreaming up non existent timelines on when an attack might occur, how about we look at whats already been stated time and again. So long as UN inspectors are present, no attack will take place, and last we checked, they were still present.
