It’s fun to watch the Brits when it’s war time, because they’re always first in line and ready for a show. And, just like the schoolyard runt who does the bully’s homework in return for protection, they’re going to do all the dirty work in the UN:
Britain will try to get the United Nations security council to authorise military intervention in Syria, David Cameron has said.
He made the announcement on Twitter after the Labour party decided overnight to toughen its stance on the issue, making support for the government in Thursday’s Commons vote conditional on Cameron’s seeking the involvement of the UN.
If the plan in Syria is to lob a few Tomahawks in the general direction of the bad guys, the US Navy can do that without any help from the leaking rustbuckets that the Royal Navy puts to sea. But Bieber knows that when it’s time to let loose, there’s going to be at least one or two Royal Navy Tomahawks falling short of their targets or crashing harmlessly into the ocean, because they may not be the most able member of “coalition of the willing”, but they sure as hell are willing.
