I’ve been dithering about whether to post this. It is a most unpleasant picture, and I have no doubt it is of a genuine atrocity. Also, I accept that, in any civil conflict, both sides will tell lies. I have no doubt that I am giving access to an atrocity photograph. But I can have no certainty who committed the atrocity. Do not click on the link given above if you are likely to be upset by an image of violent and horrifying death.
This being said, the British Government is among the coalition of troublemakers that is committed to escalating the civil war in Syria, by supplying weapons and other support to men who seem to be bloody savages, and who might, without the assistance already given, have been defeated by now. They seem to have targeted Christians in their campaign of atrocity, and they seem to have among their objectives the destruction of a fairly secular order of things in at least the main cities of the country.
Why is the British Government so keen to support these evil men? Why is it on the brink of pledging our tax money and our moral responsibility for further atrocities of this kind? It is not enough to say that the current government in Syria is a tyranny. The world is full of tyrannies that the British Government either ignores or supports. And most tyrannical governments, unless they are also run by ideologues or lunatics, limit the number of their atrocities unless they are attacked.
We need answers from William Hague that go far beyond the bland propaganda he has been mouthing – mouthing in full knowledge of what he helped to bring about in Libya. SIG
