Glad the British Parliament stood up and finally determined not to be the US’ bomber-buddy. Funny though, because what’s being projected for Syria is so much less involved than in Iraq, and they went in all guns blazing with that one. Somewhat surprised, to be honest. Apparently the Blairites are going ballistic — threatening to resign, moralizing blather about the West’s supposed “humanitarian” duty, and similar histrionics.
Anyway, I can’t help but wonder:
It’s probably the former, at least in my opinion, but I suspect that the Cliffites (American ISO, British SWP, British ISN) would also be disappointed deep down that they wouldn’t get the chance to “radicalize” liberal opposition to the war and add 30-40 names to their membership rolodex.
