Some think a Syrian conflict might escalate into World War 3...
If so, is it worth it?
Even if Assad is proven guilty of the horrific and barbaric act of using chemical weapons, is it worth possibly starting a third world war?
My point is, when we invaded Iraq and Afghanistan we were fighting a weaker opponent but Russia is not a weaker opponent. Does it make any sense to rush into a military conflict with a country that can actually fight back?
Theresa May is strutting about like Churchill now but history may remember her as "that awful woman who dragged the world into World War 3". We have no way of knowing what the long term consequences of this might be.
Lets not forget also that Russia is a nuclear power.
Considering the enormity of the possible consequences of what Theresa May is proposing doesn't it merit a little caution? Doesn't such a massive decision deserve a vote in parliament, at least?
Or perhaps I am worrying too much.
