Lead letter in tonight's Evening Standard
Miraculously austerity has disappeared. Uncounted £billions have been found to let the Prime Minister strut and posture on the world stage as a war leader. 10 years ago Blair's rhetoric, similar to the PM's now, bamboozled and bullied MPs to vote to join Bush's Iraq War.
Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have racked up massive costs in blood and treasure. 620 UK soldiers have died and old rotten governments have been replaced with new rotten governments.
Margaret Thatcher's popularity soared with the Falklands war. Is Cameron using vain glorious rhetoric to risk lives to boost his personal popularity?
The prime lesson of Iraq and Afghanistan is that we cannot win over hearts and minds with drones and bullets. Beware warmongering PMs.
Paul Flynn MP
