What Syria and all Syrians needs, is a world leader to force both sides to put down their arms

Posted 17 Jun 2013 by Walaa Idris

Have no idea why Cameron is insisting on arming the Syrian rebels! When he knows too well that even if he puts the motion to a vote, he will lose it, half his parliamentary party, his coalition partners and the majority of Labour will vote against arming the rebels.

So what on earth is he playing at?

Obama is a show off, who has nothing to lose. This is his finial term and nothing he does will change much or affect him and his presidency in any way. There are no more selections or elections for him, so he can dream, hope and do what he likes with little or no repercussions.

On the other hand, Cameron is in different place altogether. Most of the country is against any type of intervention and any aid besides humanitarian aid to Syria. He is in a partnership; they too are against arming the rebels. Add to that his popularity amongst his own party is in decline, plus almost half of his parliamentary party are against arming of the rebels ……

So, what is he playing at? What is his game? Why is he pushing the issue? When he can’t win it even if he puts it to a vote in parliament. Didn’t he see what Iraq did to Blair!?

The time for supporting the rebels was month ago, before, as Cameron himself put it this week, the unsavoury characters infiltrated both sides. Before it became impossible to separate the wheat from the chaff, so to speak – now the best solution, the only possible solution left is the diplomatic one. Both sides need to put down their arms and stop the bloodshed and murderous killings.

Why is Cameron not championing that solution and rooting for that outcome?
