‘UK bombed Syria to protect Iraq’: Cameron changes his story in UN letter — RT UK

Britain’s ambassador to the United Nations has claimed that Britain’s killing of Islamic State militants in Syria was legal because the drone strikes that caused the fatalities were launched to defend Iraq.

The government’s justification for the killings contrasts sharply with Prime Minister David Cameron’s earlier rhetoric, which claimed the strikes against Islamic State (formerly ISIS/ISIL) were a justified means of defending Britain’s national security.

    In 2009, Syrian President Assad refused to sign a proposed agreement with Qatar that would run a pipeline from the latter’s North field through Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria and on to Turkey, with a view to supply European markets in direct competition with Russia. Being a Russian ally, Assad refused to sign and instead pursued negotiations for an alternative $10 billion pipeline plan with Iran crossing Iraq and into Syria that would also potentially allow Iran to supply gas to Europe. Thus Assad had to go.
    And this is where Cameron’s concerns really lie: not with ordinary people compelled to flee war zones that his government had a hand in making but with removing Assad in order for instance to run a pipeline through Syrian territory and to prevent Iran and Russia gaining strategic momentum in the region.
    Ordinary folk are merely ‘collateral damage’ in the geopolitical machinations of bankers, oilmen and arms manufacturers, only to be shown any sympathy when the media flashes images of a dead Syrian boy washed up on a Turkish beach or people drowned at sea trying to escape turmoil at home. It is then that people like Cameron are obliged to demonstrate mock sincerity in the face of public concern.

    “I was in England two years before the violence in Syria on other business… I met with top British officials, who confessed to me that they were preparing something in Syria. This was in Britain not in America. Britain was preparing gunmen to invade Syria.”
    Writing in The Guardian in 2013, Nafeez Ahmed discusses leaked emails from the private intelligence firm Stratfor, including notes from a meeting with Pentagon officials, that confirmed US-UK training of Syrian opposition forces since 2011 aimed at eliciting “collapse” of Assad’s regime “from within.”
    He goes on to write that, according to retired NATO Secretary General Wesley Clark, a memo from the Office of the US Secretary of Defense just a few weeks after 9/11 revealed plans to “attack and destroy the governments in seven countries in five years,” starting with Iraq and moving on to “Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Iran.” Clark argues that this strategy is fundamentally about control of the region’s vast oil and gas resources.

        Understand only too well!! But the bleeding hearts will not help the Syrian people or any other middle East nationals from the ravages of the ISIS savages.
        If America and Britain had left well alone in the Middle East ISIS would have been strangled at birth.

    It gets more and more hysterical the more you examine what they (Tories) are doing, they are ramping up this fictional, “we are the only ones who can protect you” – Nazi propaganda rubbish, to divert attention away from what they are actually doing, which is nothing.
    Lie after lie after lie:
    “We took this action because there was no alternative,” the Prime Minister told a hushed House of Commons this afternoon.
    Actually, Cameroon the stupid is running away from the NI crisis as DUP pull out of powershare agreement, he hides at a nonsensical unimportant Cricket match, then runs to ME all pointless time wasting BS and, only because he is crap scared of doing his proper job, tackling the enemy within.
    Will somebody get this Rabbit out of office.
