UK Prime Minister Cameron Loses Syria War Vote in Parliament … Obama Says US Will Go It Alone … Who is the Cowboy?
Wait a minute, wasn’t it Obama who called GWB a cowboy, willing to do it alone?
A funny thing happened on the way to the UK supporting Barack Obama and his “decisive but limited” attack on Syria … British Prime Minister David Cameron lost the vote in Parliament endorsing the military action. OUCH! So much for Obama, International rock star. This may make Barack Obama and the US to go it alone and take unilateral action. Sorry, but how is an attack on Syria in the best interest of the US. Granted, a gas attack is terrible, but that is still not a reason to involve the US in a military attack that may make matters even worse in the Middle East. Wasn’t it Obama and the Democrats that accused Bush of being a cowboy and willing to do things alone? So what is your hate size Barack?
British Prime Minister David Cameron lost a vote endorsing military action against Syria by 13 votes Thursday, a stunning defeat that will almost guarantee that Britain plays no direct role in any U.S. attack on Bashar Assad’s government.
A grim-faced Cameron conceded after the vote that “the British Parliament, reflecting the views of the British people, does not want to see British military action.”
The prime minister said that while he still believed in a “tough response” to the alleged use of chemical weapons by Assad’s regime, he would respect the will of Parliament.
The defeat was as dramatic as it was unexpected. At the start of the week, Cameron had seemed poised to join Washington in possible military action against Assad. The suspected chemical weapons attacks took place Aug. 21 in suburbs east and west of Damascus. The humanitarian group Doctors Without Borders has said the strikes killed 355 people.
UPDATE I: Obama Willing to Pursue Solo Syria Strikes, Aides Say … Good grief, this inept tin horn is willing to do anything to push the US into another war and have the Middle East explode like a powder keg.
President Obama is prepared to move ahead with a limited military strike on Syria, administration officials said on Thursday, even with a rejection of such action by Britain’s Parliament, an increasingly restive Congress, and lacking an endorsement from the United Nations Security Council.
