And you guys elected this fool...By the way, he is now concerned about 'family life'... All Tory policies must be 'family friendly'...including the male Bovine excrement it spouts about the middle east conflicts..

Spin,

Instead of carping about what he is or isn't doing, why don't you give us your in depth strategy for dealing with this matter. It's easy to complain and whinge all the time. How about a considered view bearing in mind all the conflicting issues there are all of which can influence your decision. In short, lets see what your wisdom brings.

Dave; I have given my opinion on numerous occasions and you guys do not agree with me. Why blame me for your own ignorance?

Chris says:
Spin, sending troops to Iraq, after Labour's illegal invasion and the price we paid for that, is unlikely to be a vote winner.

Would you like to see our troops dying in Iraq again?

Er, David, you do realise this was Spin you were talking to?

Spin - a prime Scottish example of the benefits to the Welsh, Northern Irish and English that Scottish independence would bring; not to mention the huge saving those nations would make by no longer having to subsidise the Scots.

Spin says:
Chris; If Cameron is correct, do you want to see civilians being killed on English streets? We invaded Iraq on the pretence that it had WMD and we invaded Afghanistan on the pretence that Al Qu-eeda was a global threat. Now a genuine military and political threat comes along and we do nothing...Are we to refrain from all military action from now on?

Spinny, All UKey politicians play the 'threat of terrorism on our streets' card, Cameron is not unique, his predecessor did it. There is no significant threat to us Ukey donkeys down our High Sts from this or any other 'terrorist' mob, we are hundreds more time likely to be mown down on a zebra crossing by bobbies chasing a toerag in a stolen Nova.

Spin says:
Gordon; Indeed. But the Syrian and Iraqi conflicts are attracting British Muslims who, upon their return to Britain, will bring the 'Jihad mentality' back with them. By refusing to engage in these conflicts, the UK is actually fostering potential homeland terrorism...

Chris says:
The best way to stop civilians being killed on BRITISH street (remember they had a pop at Glasgow airport Spin) is to let them fight it out in the desert and kill each other there, imo.

We shouldn't refrain from all military action, just that which is none of our business.

Spin says:
Chris; "None of our business"? We caused the break-up of Iraq and created its conflict, remember? The US and its allies have left every nation they interfered with in a mess. At one time the stabilisation of an already stable Iraq was of the utmost importance to the West. Now, when it is a genuine threat to its immediate neighbours and to the West, it is 'none of our business'...Jeez...

Spin says:
You want to know why the West will not get involved with the Iraqi conflict? Because to do so involves more than simply 'policing' the area; it involves actual physical warfare. Army vs Army. The West is afraid to engage in a genuine war. It prefers to engage with nations with no military forces.

Chris says:
Spin, yes we made a complete balls up of Iraq, so your answer is to go back again...and again...and again?

Jeez, you don't learn do you.

So if a well armed group is marauding across a country slaughtering, raping and torturing that's none of our business? Unless the victims are British.
We should do nothing?
Would you have left Hitler to do as he pleased until he crossed the channel?

Chris says:
So Mr Pot are you prepared to go to Iraq and die in this conflict, or send your family? Or is the extent of your bravery to ask other British people to die?

I'm a bit long in the tooth for that Chris, but if a relative of mine was involved in protecting fleeing refugees and killing those responsible, I'd be proud of them.
I have no problem with backing up morals with military might.

Chris says:
Dn't get me wrong, I'm all for dropping something large and explosive on the b******ds, but troops on the ground are rightly being ruled out.

Spin says:
The West uses drones and aircraft to drop bombs on civilians and it is considered a 'reasoned ethical response'. If a man straps a bomb to himself and kills western civilians it is considered to be terrorism..

Spin, I guess akin the monkeys typing Shakespeare, if you keep posting then eventually you will say something that is correct. Unfortunately, your above post is not that occasion.

Consider recent British conflicts:

* Argentina / Falklands - military forces
* Balkans - military forces
* Gulf War 1 - military forces
* Gulf War 2 - military forces
* Afghanistan - military forces at time of entry, insurgency coming later.
* Libya - military forces
