Military action in Syria
This is Theresa May’s statement on our military action in Syria.
This is Jeremy Corbyn’s statement about the action on Facebook.
I agree with Jeremy Corbyn that “Theresa May should have sought parliamentary approval”; that “Britain should be playing a leadership role to bring about a ceasefire”; that the joint US and UK attacks make “real accountability for war crimes and use of chemical weapons less, not more likely”.
I have a question for Theresa May. Why now?
There are many documented instances of similar attacks going back as far as 2012. There is a list on Wikipedia if you care to look. Just type “history of chemical attacks in syria” into Google. The Wikipedia page is the first result. It has a spreadsheet listing the attacks and this map showing the position of those attacks.
If Theresa May or Donald Trump are so concerned about the use of chemical weapons in Syria, why did she not take action in February 2018 when chloride was used in Saraqeb, or in January 2018 when chloride was used in East Ghouta?
Please someone tell me. Why now?
