Everyone's favourite floppy-haired git has finally thrown his 'pennerth in over the growing situation in Syria-
.
http://www.telegraph...ia-maniacs.html
.
with his usual flair for tact, understatement, & dodgy haircuts, London's lord mayor weighs in with an initial 'don't be giving guns to these maniacs, you don't know what they'll do with 'em!'
bounds over the ropes with a swift 'they'll give 'em all to al qaeda dontcha know', and gives the lightweight Cameron a low blow to the goolies with a quick 'pack it in muscle-flexing ya spaz!'
if carlsberg made politicians.....

And from the evil of darkness when it settles And from the evil of the blowers in knots
And from the evil of an envier when he envies"

This is the man that apparently, according to a recent Survey, more than 50% of british peoples under the age of 30 would like to see as pry minister. Although in this case, I'd say he has a rather better grasp of the subtleties than mr. Cameroon.

I agree with Boris arming the rebels is a bad idea. just look at how well that worked in Libya, once Gaddafi was removed, these "western weapons" are now spread right across north Africa. look no further than Mali, these weapons and "freedom Fighters" found themselves trying to take the country, so much so the Mali government had to ask the French for help. we now have a situation were French soldiers are fighting and dying in Mali, and who are they fighting. the same "freedom fighters" we backed in Libya. but to make matters worse their armed to the teeth with weapons we gave in the fight to remove Gaddafi.

When it comes to Syria we have British Marines/SAS in neighbouring Jordan, Along side US troops and US Airforce. do we really need to be getting involved in the middle east mess yet again. we have Syria backed by neighbouring terrorist groups, let alone Iran, Russia and to a lesser extent China. Russia is already arming the Syrian Assad government, Iran said it could deploy 4,000 troops to help. - on the face of it there is no British interest. so we should stay right out of it. let the Arab countries deal with Syria.

Good for Boris. Syria is not our war and we should not be involved with arming unknown groups (although some stated their allegiance to Al Qaeda i.e. supporters of international terrorism).

Where is the UK National Interest in this conflict? Boris' public persona may be 'Oafish' but I suspect that behind that veneer is a good political mind that is not cowed by the Mores of ordinary politicking.

Maybe he is, but in this case, he is right.

The idiots are the likes of Obama, Cameron, and McCain, who want to jump into this conflict on the side of the Muslim Brotherhood/Al Quaeda.

And "idiots" is putting it mildly.

He did bring up one good point, how do we know which side is the good side.  Too many times in the past we got involved and the new ones in power were just as bad as the old ones.  Just a different group of people being thrown in prison, tortured and murdered.  I think we need to stay out of it.

If I thought by getting involved these people would end up better off and not ruled by Islamic law I would be all for helping.

We have an obligation from a human standpoint to help the innocent.  But when our previous attempts have failed so miserably in this regard then what sense does it make to get in between two parties that hate each other but hate US more?  Food and medicine is fine... guns?  Nope...

this as been going on for a while now with Russia supplying them. this conflict in Syria is going to spread beyond Syria's borders, it's definitely going to turn into a regional sectarian conflict. and when it does the UK should stay out. i wouldnt even send aid. it has nothing to do with us. we have no moral obligation. Let Turkey, Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and Iran - in short the Arab league, let them deal with the problem. every time we step into the middle east we are the bad guys, they hate the West, they hate the fact in the main we are Christian and non moslem and spread the notion were on some sort of crusade.
