David Cameron’s Syria bombing plans face major setback as MPs blast his ‘incoherent’ strategy – Mirror Online

‘Incoherent’ is not an adequate word for this mess. See for yourself:

New doubts loom over David Cameron’s plan to bomb IS terrorists in Syria after MPs blasted his strategy as ‘incoherent’.

The PM has dropped plans to extend air strikes, it was claimed today as the Foreign Affairs select committee warned they could be illegal if not approved by the UN.

A Downing Street source told the Mirror it was ‘nonsense’ to say plans had been dropped, admitting air strikes may not happen – but insisting that was the PM’s position all along.

A No10 spokesman insisted: “Fundamentally the Prime Minister’s position has not changed.”

Yet the PM made clear only in September that he was willing to bypass anti-war Jeremy Corbyn in a bombing vote and get approval from Labour rebels.

Now it has become clear Mr Cameron will not win enough support for air strikes thanks to rebels on his own benches, The Times reported.

And today the influential Foreign Affairs committee, including Tory MPs, attacked Mr Cameron for wanting to bomb Syria simply to show he is doing something about IS.

    Mike not only is he trying to leave his piece of “war history” as part of his so called legacy he is of course pandering to the weapons industry lobby trying to ensure that their turnover is guaranteed for the next few years because if we get involved with bombing or troops on the ground this will not be over by Christmas. Also he then will be contributing even more to the now extreme refugee problem by bombing even more innocent people out of their homes and this all by a man that has a anti refugee policy – so much for the humanity position or excuse for bombing these people if you are intending making more of them homeless. This man is a megalomaniac and should be removed along with his government for the instigation of war crimes on innocent civilians in a independent country.
