    Are you happy that May has taken the UK to the brink of a war with Russia without the support of parliament for her minority party?

    Re: Syrian airstrikes

    Definitely right to attack Syria and they should do it again (and some) if Assad doesnít stop using chemical weapons against his own citizens.

    Re: Syrian airstrikes

    The use of chemical weapons is obviously abhorrent but is is anymore abhorrent than the 500,000 of deaths cause by standard ordinance?

    I get the need to really draw the line at bio or chemical weapons but itís a bit late to worry about red lines being crossed when the country is literally in tatters.

    I suppose the use of force and do not believe that may needed parliamentary backing. All that would of happened then would be the moronic Labour Party blocking it from the comfort of the shadow without offering a single viable solution.

    Somthings seems not quite right about all this. Assad has by and large won the war so the decicidion to use Chemical weapons seems to be more about sticking fingers up at the West than a move to finish the war.

    Putin is prodding and poking us at the minute. The second he was re-elected itís like a plan to provoke was instantly put in place.

    Worrying times. Worse still when you look at who the leaders in the West currently are. An absolute shower of self serving idiots.

    Hey ho...

    Sadly half of the Labour MPs would have voted with the government just to undermine Corbyn.

    Russia new exactly what was about to happen, would have been told targets and moved anything they would have in the area.

    If they wanted to try and stop it they would have used all their assets and AA capabilities.
