    Hold onto your hats because it looks like this is going to happen. Hopefully if they move on this they do it fast.

    Wait a minute. Cameron is suggesting that the council hasn't lived up to its responsibilities in Syria, meaning Russia and Chinas vetoes on sanctions and use of force are irresponsible. It seems to me they think the west is acting irresponsible. And the resolution will include a condemnation of "Assad's chemical attack", the UN hasn't confirmed that, and there's far more evidence that the al Qaida affiliated insurgents launched the chemical attacks. I seriously doubt the Russians and the Chinese are going to accept this.

    Russia and China will block. But it looks as though the UK is the only one going through the proper steps. Obama seems to think he can just waive his scepter and make it so.

    You don't expect either Russia or China to veto?

    There's no way for it to pass, with Russia and China blocking. I get the feeling the decision's made, but the US is reluctant, under pressure from its allies to be policeman again. Cameron's desperate to be seen as more macho.
    Don't work out, work in.

    Its so they can say "well we tried to go through the proper channels". Either way missiles will be fired.

    When you go through the proper channels and your told NO. then missiles don't fly. Otherwise, what is the use of going through the proper channels?

    That's a blatant acknowledgment that the US/UK have no respect for the UN and are prepared to act belligerent, and there appears to be glee in your words over the prospect.
