My opinion is that MPs were right to rule out military action against Syria at this point. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a pacifist. There is a time and place for military action. But this does not seem to be it.
Bombing is not a flippant undertaking. Missiles kill people, usually lots of people. A country has to be crystal clear about what it hopes to accomplish and very confident that it will do so. I don’t believe that the UK has enough clarity about either of these issues to justify the taking of lives.
