After one of the most impassioned speeches ever seen in the House of Commons yesterday, on the eventual participation of Britain in Syria, David Cameron was defeated in the subsequent vote.
This delays any thoughts of a British intervention in Syria following the suspected use by Bachar al Assad of Chemical Weapons to crush his opposition.
David Cameron has always said that a second vote was necessary in the House of Commons early next week to determine what Britain should do.
This intention seems to have been "Highjacked" by a collection of "wets" as Margaret Thatcher would no doubt have labelled them. Are they scared of Britain acting ? Have any of these MP's ever "done National Service" ? Are they scared they might be called up ?
At this point let us not forget that the world is watching Britain but also judging it and its countrymen !
The solution might be that Britain should now lead the eventual arraignment of Bachar al Assad for the violation of "the universal humanitarian rights of man", the act of which most leading countries in the "Syrian Problem" have signed. (See the article in this Blog dated 27/08/2013 entitled "For Humanitarian Reasons Bachar al Assad must be judged").
The verdict of the United Nations Inspection into the use of Chemical Weapons in Syria, will be known this weekend. Perhaps this will influence the next vote in the House of Commons. Let us not forget that this is not a party political problem. It is a Humanitarian Question !
