Labour’s online voice have put the case for war in Iraq. In what must be the worst argued blog in the history of The Standard, the new author also attacks me for conflating the issues.
The argument that The Standard blogger puts is that ‘something must be done’ and that it is a morally just thing to re-invade Iraq this time to fight Islamic fascism.
What a load of cobblers.
Of course something should be done about ISIS, the thing that should be done is a major crackdown on Saudi Arabia and Turkish funding of ISIS. ISIS are there because of the power vacuum created when America invaded Iraq last time for weapons of mass destruction that didn’t exist.
The allies that The Standard blogger wants us to fight alongside are as barbaric as the forces we are supposedly fighting.
When The Standard are promoting war as a Left wing response to ISIS, the trundle to the middle within Labour might be occurring at an even more alarming speed than previously thought.
