UK imitates US: We can attack Syria without UN approval.
While the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said that Syria will defend itself against any aggression by foreign powers, it seems that Britain is trying to imitate the usual behaviour in terms of any rhetoric of war by the U.S. administration in Washington because the British government said again that it can take military action against the Syrian government in Damascus without the approval by the United Nations (e.g. UN Security Council / UNSC).
Of course, this would in principle pose a violation of international law, but under the consideration that every war of aggression is already such a violation and with having in mind the recent history in terms of such wars of aggressions by Western powers, who should stop Washington and London when they really want to go to war against Syria? The United Nations (UN)? Tell it to the marines!
And while the British administration has actually said that it does not need an approval by the UN Security Council (UNSC) to carry out military actions against Syria, there are also some new statements from the Syrian side.
For example, the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad not only said that Syria will be victorious in case the United States really start to wage war against the Arab country, but he also said that the Syrian nation will defend itself against any aggression and that the Arab country and its people are determined to crush the Israeli-backed terrorists who are operating and fighting in Syria against the secular government.
Syria’s President al-Assad said that Syria is determined “to crush the Israeli-backed terrorists operating against his government”. The determination for resistance against the imperialist threats by the Syrian people has been already underlined by Iran’s Armed Forces Major General, Firouzabadi, just today.
The Syrian President Bashar al-Assad made further remarks during a meeting with a delegation from Yemen in the capital, Damascus. For example, the President of Syria said in the presence of the delegation of Yemeni politicians that “threats will only increase its (Syria’s) commitment to its principles and its independence.” Bashar al-Assad also pointed out, as mentioned, that Damascus is determined to crush the Israeli-backed terrorists operating against his government.
Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad said the following on Thursday:
“Syria, with its resistant people and valiant army, is determined to wipe out terrorism which is being backed by Israel and Western nations to serve their own purposes of sowing division in the region, fragmenting its people and forcing them into submission.”
And although the UN inspectors in Syria are going to leave the country already on Saturday morning, the planned Iranian delegation will not cancel its visit to Damascus. Come what may, the Iranian parliamentary delegation will travel to the Syrian capital “under any circumstances” if a military strike is launched against Damascus.
According to the spokesperson of the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee of Iran, Seyyed Hossein Naqavi Hosseini, the parliamentary delegation will travel to Syria under any circumstances and a military attack against Syria will not prevent the visit to Damascus. That sounds like some have balls. However, although the reasons for the visit to Syria are known, it is questionable whether all details around this visit of the Iranian parliamentary delegation to Syria were really published.
According to the known information about the visit of the Iranian delegation to Syria, it is said that the visit aims to assess the situation in the Arab country and to show the support of Tehran for the Syrian government in Damascus and the Syrian people after the recent war threats by Washington against the Syrian nation.
Hossein Naqavi Hosseini further said in terms of the planned visit that the Iranian parliamentary delegation, including the chairman and members of the Iranian Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee, will “go ahead with its plan to visit Syria”, and will not call it off.
And besides the British swaggering that they can attack Syria without any approval by the UN Security Council (UNSC),there are at least also some good news from the UK. According to the recent information about the current stance of the British opposition party, the Labour Party, it seems that the majority of the Labour Party is not really convinced to wage another senseless war against a country of the Middle East.
Maybe they also thing that it is finally enough with wars based on foreign-implemented pretexts and lies. However, although the recent statements by the Labour Party leader Ed Miliband and another source from the opposition in the UK sound good, it remains to be seen whether Britain will support this war against Syria or not in the end.
Just like the EU recently, also the leader of the British Labour Party, Ed Miliband, has now demanded “compelling evidence” from the guys in Washington for the accusations by the United States against the Syrian government in Damascus that they have used chemical weapons against Syrian civilians – because it is time to “learn the lessons of Iraq.”
