Once the oil runs out the Middle East will become a very different place, and the billionaire sheikhs and Western-style playboys will be replaced by something much more akin to the Taleban. Our experience in Afghanistan proves that there isn't much we can do about that, so we might as well get used to leaving the Middle East to stew in its own juice.

From what I read, this "civil" war now has religious and ethnic characteristics, and the increased strength of radical Islamic groups suggests that the alternative to Assad's regime may be a hell of a long way from being democratic.

Yugoslavia, anyone?

As far as I'm aware the Free Syrian Army aren't involved in terrorist attacks on mainland Britain and Northern Ireland, so there is a significant difference between the two.

The American funding of the IRA was disgraceful and the blood of innocent victims will remain on their hands for ever. waggyfinger

but we are funding Syrian rebels

Quote:
Foreign Secretary William Hague says the UK's commitment of an extra 5m in non-lethal equipment to the Free Syrian Army is "the right thing to do".

The extra practical support for the opposition FSA will include more radio and satellite equipment, as well as portable power generators.

However, the assistance will not include any weapons.



The "right thing to do"?
