I believe that you may be on to something there. However, I think we, as a nation, SHOULD be very careful in future about what we do, and why we do
it. I could be accused of being a bit of a broken record by saying this, but I really cannot stress enough the importance of remembering past errors.
Failing to do so dooms us to repeat them, and the evidence for this is strung throughout the entire course of human history.
Our nations leader at the time of the Iraq war, was either hopelessly ignorant of what was happening, making him unfit for his post, or conspired
with another nations leader to not only mislead the entire western world, but also to kill untold numbers of Iraqi civilians. The British people have
a responsibility to remember that heresy for what it was, and so do the politicians, although thier reason to remember that horrific balls up will be
different than the reasons the rest of us carry with us.
You see, the people are the majority, and I honestly do not think that the people will put up with being out right hoodwinked, blindsided, and BS'd
quite so blatantly on such an important topic, when we are less than twenty years away from the begining of the War on Terror, and more specifically,
from the invasion of Iraq. If an attack on Syria were to happen now, without iron clad proof of who is responsible for the chemical attacks, and a
CLEAR plan as well as an absolutely solid exit plan, with an unbreakable promise that all assets placed in Syria, are removed within a a ABSOLUTE and
unchangeable timeframe, no matter what the situation at the time.
I honestly do not think that the people of the United Kingdom of Great Britain will stand for it, should things be revealed about the situation on
the ground now, after we go in, so caution on the part of our representatives in Parliament is, I believe, very wise, and representative of the
opinion of thier constituents, which is pretty bloody weird of them to be honest. Normally they just do what they fancy to, and tell the lot of us to
get bent. On this however, it appears that they are listening, and are aware of the negative feelings many of us have about the way we ended up in
Iraq, and our desire never to see things done that way again.
