I'm constantly astounded by how bat-sh*t crazy politicians actually are.
We all know perfectly well that, after the Iraq debacle, the rest of the world doesn't trust the West. And quite rightly. As far as they're concerned, we're a bunch of bloodthirsty war-mongers that spin lies to justify the invasion of other countries. Some call us "Those who drink blood and oil" (which is so f**king poetic I'm going to have to plagiarise it at some point).
In light of that, you'd think the U.S. might, possibly, wait for U.N. collected evidence (seen by the rest of the world as impartial) to be analysed and presented, before
trying to start World War 3?
The British PM was all ready to drag us along, but thankfully The House of Commons gave him a slap and asked "What the hell are you doing?!".
If action is going to be taken in that region, in this political climate, your case must be f**king bullet-proof!
WAIT FOR THE U.N.'s REPORT!!
If all is as claimed, Russia and China will be shamed into silence, and action can be taken without exacerbating tensions in the Middle East....
....and if it's not, the more vocal western politicians
can kiss their careers goodbye.
