U.K JOINS THE NEW WORLD WAR
UK joined the USA, as a secondary player, in the invasion to Afghanistan (Absolute Justice ), in 12/2001, in the Invasion to Iraq, in 03/2003, based on fabricated intelligence, and was part of the coalition that toppled Muammar Gaddafi in 10/2011 (Odyssey Dawn ).
Tony Blair, UK’s PM at the time of the invasion to Iraq used a CNN interview with Fareed Zakaria, on 10/24/2015, to apologise for elements of the Iraq war, prompting immediate accusations that he is attempting to “preempt” the report into the conflict due to be published soon by Sir John Chilcot. “I apologise for… some of the mistakes in planning and certainly, our mistake in our understanding of what would happen once you removed the regime. But I find it hard to apologise for removing Saddam” he said.
Eventually, in historic retroperspective, Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya are in constant civil war, ongoing crisis, a hotbed for terror and for the Islamic State (ISIS) expansion , the source of the current immigration crisis in Europe and Al Qaeda in Afghanistan, Saddam Hussein in Iraq or Muammar Qaddafi in Libya proved to be not the worst alternative, some will argue that they were the most suitable alternative for those specific societies. There is nothing to suggest that there is for Syria a viable solution but to begin to talk about the reformation and division of Syria, Iraq and other countries in the Middle East. like Lebanon, with new borders, new states and new identities, like a Kurdish State, an Alawite State, An Arab Shiite State, allied to Iran, in Southern Iraq.
The Sykes–Picot agreement of 1916, which guidelined the current borders of the Middle East. also a British-French enterprise, is not valid any more and an alternative approach is way more needed than more bombings – the bombings can be useful only in the framework of a political plan as mentioned above.
