"Sorry to disappoint Jim, but no-one is advocating invasion.
Except you, obviously."
It is difficult not to be disgusted by the usual suspect's expression of obvious glee at the fact that no decision has been taken yet as to how they intend to act to defend the people of Syria against one of Britain's old trading partners and allies - another few days of entertainment on the box watching the gas attacks and slaughtering of those nasty "implanted" Arabs I suppose.
Some sort of intervention is inevitable and the longer it is spun out, the more innocent deaths and the bloodier any action will be.
It is more than a little ironic that is is the Tory Government who has finally got off their arses and advocated military action.
It has always been the responsibility of the U.N. to put a halt to the slaughter and allowing the Russian/Chinese vetos to block any action has not only allowed the killing to go on, but it has debased them as an organisation

"Britain Will Seek UN Clearance for Military Action Against Syria
By Andrew Sparrow, Guardian UK

David Cameron says UK will put forward resolution at security council 'authorising necessary measures to protect civilians'
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.
But Downing Street sources said approaching the UN had always been part of the government's plan, and denied Labour had bounced Cameron into acting."
