UK PM Cameron to push for war with case for joining Syria air strikes

1 post in this topic

LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister David Cameron will this week set out the case for joining air strikes against Islamic State militants in Syria, his finance minister said on Sunday, in a bid to persuade a parliament loath to embark on another war in the Middle East.

Britain is already bombing IS in Iraq but Cameron has said he believes Britain should be doing more to fight the militants, who claimed responsibility for this month's attacks in Paris in which 130 people died.

France has in the days since stepped up its bombing campaign against the group's members in Syria, who are also being targeted from the air by a U.S.-led coalition and Russia.

Cameron is keen to avoid a repeat of 2013 when he lost a crunch parliamentary vote on air strikes against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's forces.

"The prime minister will seek support across parliament for strikes against that terrorist organization in Syria. Frankly Britain has never been a country that stands on the sidelines and relies on others to defend us," finance minister George Osborne told BBC television on Sunday.

I seem to be seeing 2 coalitions forming and going into Syria. China Russia and who else on their side, then U.S., Israel,  France and now probably the UK (and who else is over there?). 

Is this lining up more to be WWIII? All the main players are stepping onto the stage.
