You'd think his disaster in Libya, which with Cameron's assistance is Daesh / ISIS' new stronghold, would teach him some sense, but no. He's continued to prolong the civil war in Syria, continued to assist the death, maiming and destruction of innocent civilian populations, continued to feed the stream of desperate army deserters, rebel supporters and innocent refugees now heading for Turkey. As Simon Jenkins writes:
The Russians and the Iranians are supporting Assad. This support has no moral virtue but is at least more likely to end the war in his favour than the west is likely to bring victory to his opponents. Assad’s allies give him weapons, bases and boots on the ground. Western aid to his enemies, including from Britain, consists only of dropping bombs on an already devastated country. This merely creates more refugees. Britain is helping to prolong the war, the opposite of what the refugees want.And of course he's horribly wrong on every aspect of Europe; even his scaremongering is so risibly, clumsily, stupidly naive and jejune that his French allies waste no time in shooting it down. After Cameron claimed that a 'leave' vote would lead to vast migrant camps around Dover, he was being either grossly ignorant or wilfully deceptive; the treaty between the UK and France that allows pre-channel screening on both sides is a bi-lateral treaty wholly separate from EU membership; the French interior minister has since made it clear that it would be 'madness' to repudiate the treaty and that it would continue, whatever the outcome of the vote.
All wars end, but civil wars usually end when one side admits defeat. Britain’s aid to the Syrian rebels has always been mere “virtue signalling”. But by appearing to side with them it merely encourages their resistance, while incidentally helping the cause of Isis.
What an utter prat Cameron has become. It seems he can't be trusted to open his gob these days without putting his foot in it. It reminds me of the final weeks in office of Gordon Brown - and that's saying something.
