    David Cameron loses Syria vote in Commons

    Britain will not be joining the US in immediate military action against Syria. The House of Commons has just voted against supporting the government's plans for bombing raids against Assad's forces by 13 votes. It looks like it'll be just the US and France. I wonder who are going to get the 'cheese-eating surrender monkey' treatment now.

    nothing about this conflict will end well.

    the Syrian people are the true losers in all this. they are dying and there is nothing that can be done to stop it.

    I got a sneaking feeling that Cameron will ignore this vote and do it any ways, by providing logistical support...

    That's great news Andalublue, hopefully our congress will vote on it here as well and vote the will of 91% of Americans!

    I don't think it's in the US national interest to attack Syria.

    That wouldn't be ignoring the vote, as what they vetoed was specifically direct military intervention, not logistical support.

    I'm not sure I fully believe in this war on Syria. I'm still questioning the intelligence that says the Syrian govt used chem weapons. There seem to be contradictory stories.

    I know.. which means that US bombers could be flying from UK bases in Cyprus or the UK it self.. naw, that is not "direct military intervention".. just logistical support

    Fact is Cameron got his ass handed to him, not only by the opposition but by his own party.. because he could not present a good enough argument for a military strike.. The evidence he presented to parliament is laughable and the vote showed this.
