THE 51ST state of the USA, otherwise known as Britain, has been told by its president, via its senator David Cameron, to take the lead on demanding an attack on a country that is no threat to Britain.

President Obama wants to attack Syria on the spurious notion that death by nerve gas is worse than death from being cut open and having your heart eaten by an al- Qaeda maniac.

The latter way of death would appear acceptable, the former demanding an all-out attack on Iran’s ally Syria. We approach the centennial of the origins of the First World War, and the unintended consequences of that conflict. Our puppet politicians of the USA appear totally ignorant of history. Nothing new, then!
