Anyone capable of reason would say that the House made a decision to clearly reject ANOTHER bout of militarism when the outcomes aren't clear and the justification is weak.

We see Al-Qaeda taking over towns and chasing away anyone who does not side with their ideology. Why on earth anybody would side with them is a mystery. As if the rebel side is innocent and their interests are one with the millions of refugees.

I think your fellow MPs realised that there was no benefit to getting involved and likely things would be made worse. Neither were they convinced to intervene by Assad's supposed use of chemical weapons.

I think this is a momentous turning point now that the NATO war machine has (for now) had its teeth pulled out by independent minded democracy.

Also the lesson from the Iraq catastrophe has been learned.
