Looks like the UK is ready to go to war without the UN's approval.

news.sky.com...


British military action against Syria would still be legal without UN support, according to advice from the Government's lawyers.

The legal basis for intervention argues "exceptional measures" would be justified on humanitarian grounds and permitted under international law.

It endorses a targeted strike against the Assad regime even if Russia and China block agreement at the United Nations.


Not surprised one bit & I expect Washington to follow suit.

WWIII is back on folks.

Goddamn globalist criminals.

UK never backed down to military intervention they just needed pause to find the next step. But if the UK do go ahead with UN permission then Russia stance will sharpen !

I thought I read the UK was backing down due to the unpopularity of it all as well as the UN not backing it, yet.

Funny enough I actually posted your thread, so I suppose it's covered in 2 threads. I would say this more than just a Middle East issue since the UK is ready to go even if Russia & China veto.

I do hope these people feel equal about it all when or if the world decides England or America need outside intervention. They're not just making the case for the assassination of Assad....but why they have nothing to say and no right to say it if they find themselves in the same position.

Don't cry to the UN, to be sure. After all, they don't need to be consulted. They just said so.

The unbelievable arrogance is breathtaking. If the leaders of the 3rd Reich could have been given a chance to make similar cheap excuses for the invasion of Poland and more? I'll bet this is precisely what they'd have sounded like.

The West has fully transformed into what it started out fighting....and the other side has won. Entirely.
