 Obama assembles fragile alliance blaming Assad for chemical attacks









 
The usual suspects queue up at the G20, as they queue at the UN to line up behind the Americans in some  hope of currying favour and aid from Uncle Sam. Noticeable on the list are Saudi Arabia and Turkey both of which have a questionable history in their treatment of minority groups and opposition within their own borders. However, when it comes to hypocrisy, the western world with their holier than thou public statements and their Middle East camp followers, have few equals. Incidentally, it seems strange that Cameron can sign this scrap of paper on behalf of the United Kingdom, when the House of Commons voted against supporting an American escapade into Syria. Well Mr Cameron, you certainly did not sign it on my behalf.
