Stay out of Syria: Why warmongering is BAD for Britain, writes Ben Harris-Quinney

At the same time the White House was briefing there was no shift in Syria policy, and the US missile strike was a one-off reaction to Assad's reported use of chemical weapons. In truth, it was as much a show of strength to China and North Korea.

It was obvious to any observer that the UK Government's continuous support for foreign intervention was not chiming with the new global order, or even the US. It has not been chiming with the British public for 15 years.

The Foreign Office proposals were swiftly and embarrassingly further dismissed at the G7 meeting just two days later. Much of this will be papered over as focus shifts to the General Election, but an outdated and ill-conceived foreign policy could at any time blow up and derail both a government and the Brexit process.

US Preparing Charges Against Julian Assange

Sessions: Assange Arrest Is 'a Priority'

Attorney General Jefferson Sessions insists that even though there haven’t been charges laid against Assange yet that arresting him is “a priority” for the Justice Department, citing the number of “quite serious” leaks WikiLeaks has been responsible for.

US officials have repeatedly vilified WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange over the past several years, and intermittently called for his assassination, but just now appear to be nearing a decision to file charges against him, accusing him of crimes for involvement in the whistleblower organization.

Interestingly, President Trump publicly praised WikiLeaks during the campaign for releasing information about Hillary Clinton, even joking that WikiLeaks might be able to find Clinton’s “lost” emails. Having since turned against Russia in large part as a political effort to distance himself from allegations of election manipulation, Trump’s cabinet is also turning against WikiLeaks.

‘Hard to say no’: Johnson hints parliament vote against Syria invasion may be ignored at US request

British Foreign Secretary Johnson was on Tuesday briefing MPs on the situation in Syria and North Korea, when he was posed with a question by former Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and Conservative MP, Alistair Burt. Burt asked what the UK government’s reaction would have been if, instead of just hitting Syria’s Shayrat airfield on April 7, Washington decided to first enlist military help from Britain.

When asked if he and the British government consider themselves to be “bound” by the past decision not to intervene in Syria and plan to reinvigorate the parliamentary debate or “if not, what might the United Kingdom be able to do to demonstrate its force and resolve,” Johnson hinted that the UK is ready to back Washington not only politically but also militarily.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So Foreign Secretary Johnson would be willing to ignore the stated will of Parliament on Syria, to please his American counterparts, who will most probably want, and ask for, British military help in Syria?!?

This is hubris, writ large.

So what happens when British troops wind up in direct military conflict with the Russian troops, which have been invited by the Syrian government to deal with the jihadists?!?

War with Russia?!?!?

Or have you actually thought it through to that point, just where military aid to the US in Syria was ultimately leading, Secretary Johnson?!?

If I could, I would want to make it a universal law that those opting for wars should consistently have their kids in the front lines, catching flack.

I honestly think that this would be a way to diminish the lust for war as "the only way" through which countries could settle their geopolitical differences.

BREXIT BILL BOMBSHELL: Now Brussels demands annual HIKE in UK's divorce payment

Officials in Brussels want the power to make “annual technical adjustments” to the gargantuan tab even after it has been agreed with Britain, adding on extra demands for cash every year.

The jaw-dropping move means the mooted £52bn bill could continue to grow in size years into the future, with the UK still being asked to cough up more money even after it has left the bloc.

The Communist Party are On the Ballots Once Again in the UK: The Hammer and Sickle Flying Proudly

When voters in Birmingham received their ballots through the door for the upcoming “Metro” Mayoral Elections taking place on next month, many were surprised to see the “Hammer and Sickle” logo and a Communist party candidate. Apparently the deaths of 150,000,000 odd people has not been quite enough to shame activists into silence. And what may be even more surprising, is that the “Communist Party of Great Britain” never actually went away. It has been operating openly and working on the sidelines of British politics for almost 100 years.

“We need a general election and we need one now,” she said. “I have only recently and reluctantly come to this conclusion but now I have concluded it is the only way to guarantee certainty for the years ahead.”

Toddler traumatised after pony killed by low flying US fighter jets in Cornwall

Witnesses reported being terrified by the sight and sound of two low-flying USAF F15 jets last week, which are being blamed for spooking and causing the death of many horses.

The jets are believed to have originated from RAF Lakenheath in Suffolk and a probe is underway after the pilots were accused of going on a dangerous 'joyride.'.

But the family of little Amelia Brown have demanded answers after the tot was left heartbroken at the loss of her beloved 10-year-old pet Monty.

Initial reports suggested at least three horses had to be shot as a result - but further victims have now come forward and the scale of the devastation is still being evaluated.

Attorney General tries to block bid to prosecute Tony Blair over Iraq War

Attorney General Jeremy Wright has formally asked for the bid to prosecute Mr Blair to be rejected.

The private case is being brought by General Abdul-Wahid Shannan ar-Ribat, former chief of staff of the Iraqi army.

He wants the former Labour prime minister to be convicted of the crime of 'aggression' for taking part, alongside the US, in the invasion of his country under the false pretext that Saddam Hussein's regime harboured weapons of mass destruction.

BREXIT PUNISHMENT: Brussels to strip UK of banking and medicine agencies

BRUSSELS bigwigs are poised to strip the UK of two important European Union agencies within the next few weeks and have also dismissed her calls for early Brexit trade talks.

The loss of the London-based European Medicines Agency (EMA) and European Banking Authority (EBA) became inevitable after Britain voted to leave the EU because both are intrinsically linked to the single market.

But the decision to move so quickly after Theresa May began divorce proceeding by invoking Article 50 is seen by many as a sign of the uncompromising position being taken by EU diplomats.

How many bombs has Britain dropped in 2017?

The UK has been bombing so-called Islamic State targets in Iraq since 2014 and in Syria since the year after.

The Ministry of Defence (MoD) does not release statistics on the number of bombs dropped, but does release weekly updates of operations in the region.

BBC analysis shows UK forces have dropped bombs on 69 of the 99 days of 2017 to 9 April.

In that time, at least 216 bombs and missiles have been dropped by the Royal Air Force.

The total number is likely to be higher as MoD updates sometimes do not specify the number of bombs or missiles used in a strike.

Brexit bonus! Return of wonky fruit & vegetables

BENT bananas, imperfect pears and misshapen apples could be back on the menu after a Tory minister pledged to get rid of “unnecessarily burdensome” EU laws affecting British produce.

The size, shape and appearance of fresh fruit and vegetables is governed by Brussels diktats stipulating everything from how red apples should be to how much russetting is allowed on a pear.

Altogether there are 367 pages of rules, totalling 175,000 words on the subject.

Despite campaigning by chefs such as Jamie Oliver and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, supermarkets still feel the need to reject wonky carrots and knobbly potatoes fearing customers will not buy anything other than “perfect” produce.

Now Environment Minister George Eustice has refused to rule out repealing the EU legislation on fruit and salad too.

CNN Confirms Fox's Napolitano - British Intelligence Passed On Trump Surveillance To US Spy Agency

Roughly a month ago, during the height of the mainstream media mania over Trump's alleged collusion with Russia, Judge Andrew Napolitano appeared on Fox and Friends with a startling new revelation, namely that President Obama circumvented U.S. law and employed a British intelligence agency to conduct surveillance of the Trump campaign. Despite Napolitano's assertion that the information had been confirmed by 3 separate sources, the Obama administration and foreign intelligence agencies issued immediate denials and the mainstream media was all too happy to trash the latest 'conspiracy theory' of their competitor network.

PETER OBORNE: Theresa May is at risk of copying Blair's poodle-like subservience to America and I don't share the Foreign Office hawks' joy over the US missile attack

Ever since the start of the terrible Syrian conflict six years ago, the British Government has wanted Western military intervention to help get rid of President Bashar al Assad.

But this policy seemed to have failed. Assad appeared close to winning the war, as Trump acknowledged last week when his Press secretary said that Assad staying was a ‘political reality that we have to accept’.

But then came Tuesday’s dreadful chemical attack on the village of Khan Sheikhoun in north-west Syria.

Instantly, the British and American governments blamed Assad for the horror, and within 72 hours the U.S. launched a revenge missile assault on the airbase from which the chemical attack was believed to have been launched.

The exultation in Whitehall at this turnaround of events is all the greater because it marks such an extraordinary volte-face by Donald Trump. For it is less than three months since he took office and pledged non-intervention in Syria.

Russia, Iran Warn U.S. They Will "Respond With Force" If Syria "Red Lines" Crossed Again

A statement issued on Sunday by a joint command centre consisting of forces of Russian, Iran and allied militia alliance supporting Syrian President Bashar al Assad said that Friday's US strike on the Syrian air base crossed “red lines” and it would "respond with force" to any new aggression while increasing their level of support to their ally.

In the statement published by the group on media outlet Ilam al Harbi, the pro-Assad alliances says that “what America waged in an aggression on Syria is a crossing of red lines. From now on we will respond with force to any aggressor or any breach of red lines from whoever it is and America knows our ability to respond well."

Earlier on Sunday the UK's Defence Secretary, Sir Michael Fallon, demanded Russia rein in Mr Assad (by which he really meant be willing to accept a new Syrian regime with a pro-western puppet leader, and one who is willing to allow the Qatar gas pipeline to cross the country on its way to Europe.

"Developments in Syria have changed the situation fundamentally,"

"We deplore Russia's continued defence of the Assad regime even after the chemical weapons attack on innocent civilians,"

"We call on Russia to do everything possible to bring about a political settlement in Syria and work with the rest of the international community to ensure that the shocking events of the last week are never repeated."

"My priority is now to continue contact with the U.S. and others in the run-up to the G7 meeting on 10-11 April - to build coordinated international support for a ceasefire on the ground and an intensified political process."

Britain hands over embassy to Israel’s war industry

Does Britain conceal the full extent of its support for Israel?

Sayeeda Warsi, a Conservative politician, recently urged the prosecution of British citizens who fight for the Israeli military.

Warsi should be commended for raising an important issue – just as she did when resigning as a government minister over Britain’s refusal to condemn the 2014 bombing of Gaza.

Yet Britain provides more direct assistance to Israel than allowing Londoners and Mancunians join a foreign army.

One example of that assistance has avoided scrutiny: Britain’s embassy in Tel Aviv has hired senior players in Israel’s weapons industry.

Car insurance price hike for all UK drivers due to this 'INSANE' European court ruling

Boris Johnson has deemed the new rule, that off-road vehicles and racing cars have to be insured even if they never enter a public highway as "insane" and a “perfect example” of “over-regulation.”

This rule, which being referred to as the Vnuk judgement, tried to make off-road vehicles such as tractors and mobility scooters pay for motor insurance.

But insurers do not believe it would be possible to make all drivers of off-road vehicles, such as tractors, buy cover meaning ordinary motorists will therefore face the costs of this levy as an additional charge to they insurance policy.

The Foreign Secretary added that such “undemocratic law-making” makes him glad that the UK voted to leave the EU.
