Don't believe for one second that TPTB that govern the UK don't want a war with Syria, it's just on this occasion people have been keeping a close eye on David Cameron and Co. and a NO vote has basically put him in a tight corner. However I suspect he'll worm his way around it and drag us into it at a later stage one way or the other.

I'm sure the US will still be happy to use any intel provided by SAS who are probably already on the ground in Syria. Maybe we should eject these forces and let American special forces take over.
Sinan Ulgen, chairman of the Center for Economics and Foreign Policy Studies, a think tank in Istanbul, said the development was not unexpected. "Erdogan made his choice long ago, placing Turkey in the vanguard of countries calling for regime change in Syria," Mr Ulgen said yesterday. "That choice comes with a number of risks."
not involved in the operation, what business do they have listening in on the planning?

British military chiefs are being ejected from US meetings about Syria in the first direct consequence of David Cameron’s refusal to join military action.
The role of senior British officers based at US Central Command in Tampa, Florida, has been downgraded because they cannot be trusted with high-level intelligence about a conflict with which they are no longer involved, military sources say.
Huh? Cannot be trusted? You're kidding right? So because the British Parliament showed wisdom and restraint in saying no to war, all of sudden the British military's gotta go?
But wait a minute. What are British military doing in Tampa in the first place?
And wait a minute #2: Doesn't this imply that no matter what the US Congress says, Obama's going to proceed with the strikes anyways (as I believed)?
Damn this world's messed up.edit on Mon Sep 2nd 2013 by TrueAmerican because: (no reason given)
