Another asylum seeker? Hopefully not.

Cameron it seems (as ever) is not getting the point about letting known terrorist suspects free travel the world over...
Syrian president Bashar Assad could be allowed to flee his country if it would end the bloodshed, David Cameron said today.
The Prime Minister said it would do ‘anything to get that man out of the country’ but refused to offer Assad a safe haven in Britain.
Mr Cameron is on the second day of a tour of the Gulf and Middle East, where he has faced criticism for trying to sell UK arms to countries with questionable human rights records.
But the PM has also publicly backed the Arab Spring uprisings, which began in Tunisia and also saw governments swept aside in Libya, Egypt and Yemen.
In Syria there have been bloody battles for more 18 months, with tens of thousands of protestors killed by government forces.
So, he can leave, but not come here? Not exactly a great option now is it Dave? Assad is holding onto power by the skin of his teeth, he won't try to run unless he has a bolt hole to go to if he thinks he's losing. Why Cameron thinks it's his duty to interfere with another countries civil war is beyond me either, I was quite happy to see muslims killing each other in Syria and all over the middle east so long as they weren't trying to kill us or ours.
What the UK (such as it is) should be doing is heading towards a state where we aren't a major player on the world stage, a bit of armed isolation is called for where we only defend what's ours and not get involved in anyone else's wars.
Why Cameron should be criticised for selling arms is beyond me either, so long as they don't end up being used against us we should sell them everything they want. A questionable human rights record is not our business, selling them the rope to hang themselves is.

Cameroon would do well to keep his gob shut - he is only over there to try and sell Typhoons to the Camel Jockeys, the same repressive regimes that want fuck all do with democracy as we know it. Keep out of Syria otherwise there will be 'blowback'. There will eventually be another Saudi funded and inspired Muslime regime that can turn its eyes and thought towards the 'West'....

What the hell is he getting us involved for?

Just for once I`d like to see our govt putting our needs first instead of charging round the world playing Lady Bountiful come to solve their woes.

I hear now that there`s talk of RAF fighters being sent to the Middle East to keep Iran from attacking their neighbors(I wonder who will be paying for that? Them or us?)

Oh God,we`re not going to have some mad Syrian military adventure are we?
Because as nasty as Assad is,at least he`s not some crazed religious zealot.
Would they prefer to have to deal with a hardline Islamic govt?Because I suspect thats who will be running Syria if Assad falls.
