UK Backs Away from War
British Parliament has rejected war against Syria .
A new Express Online poll shows that only 8%  of Britons support war against Syria. Polls by the Mirror and Sun  confirm that Brits wholly oppose any military intervention in Syria. (Brits join most of the rest of the world  in rejecting war.)
David Cameron’s claims that the Syrian government carried out the recent chemical weapons attack has been shown to have been built on sand .
Tony Blair argues :
People wince at the thought of intervention. But contemplate the future consequence of inaction and shudder: Syria mired in carnage between the brutality of Assad and various affiliates of al Qaida, a breeding ground of extremism infinitely more dangerous than Afghanistan in the 1990s; Egypt in chaos, with the West, however unfairly, looking as if it is giving succour to those who would turn it into a Sunni version of Iran.
But perhaps Britons have learned- from reports from mainstream media sources such as BBC , theIndependent , the New York Times ,USA Today , CNN , McClatchy , AP , the Daily Beast , the Blaze , or theStar  – that supporting the rebels means supporting Al Qaeda and two other terrorist groups . Indeed, the the New York Times has reported  that virtually all of the rebel fighters are Al Qaeda terrorists.
Or maybe they’ve learned that the entire rationale for a war against Syria is bogus .
