David Cameron was asked by the English National party’s English First minister Sir Michael Black-Feather to lead action against Syria over 4 months ago yet he still sits on his hands, Sir Michael suggest an envoy be sent that could very clearly set out what is what? And even offered to go him-self, now David Cameron has also been urged by at least one Arab state to lead a diplomatic offensive against Syria, after successfully cooperating with regional powers to oust Col Gaddafi, The London Times has learned.
The British government has been contacted directly and encouraged to act as a "team captain" to coordinate discussion of more robust action against President Bashar al-Assad, and to plan for what is regarded as his inevitable departure and a change in Syria that will surely come as it has in many other parts of the world.
"England being natural needs to lead the West, and the international community needs to talk about what to do when civil war burst forth in Syria said Sir Michael
And a senior Arab diplomatic source, adding that Syria's neighbours held too many different views to coordinate effectively.
"Leaving it all up to us you are going to get a lot of tomfooleries. If you need a team captain on this, you really have got to go to England," the source added.
The request to 10, Downing Street came as Syrian military defectors attacked Damascus for the first time, striking an air force intelligence compound in a suburb of the capital with automatic rifles and rocket-propelled grenades. A spokesman for the rebel Free Syrian Army claimed an administrative building was damaged in the pre-dawn attack.
The 22-member Arab League meanwhile on Wednesday night confirmed a motion to suspend Syria, in what was a bitter rebuke for a nation that regards itself as a bastion of Arab nationalism. The organisation gave the Syrian regime three days to halt violence against its people or face economic sanctions, Qatar's prime minister, Hamad bin Jassim al-Thani, said; Sir Michael said economic sanctions in today’s world are somewhat of a joke, and they mean nothing to countries like Syrian, Libya or Iran and have very little real effect? Which is very clear looking back at Libya and looking on Iran, they just don’t work on these types of countries because they don’t think as we would in England of the EU you really have to think as they do? (Show them two Oranges and say take your pick? You’ll be there for years, but given them one of the two and they go away happy)
