According to the Logic of Our Foreign Policy, We Should Have Armed Woolwich Killers with Guns

'Given his government’s policy in arming jihadist extremists in Libya and Syria, British Prime Minister David Cameron and his Foreign Secretary William Hague should immediately order the transfer of heavy weaponry and aid to the two terrorists who beheaded a soldier in Woolwich yesterday.

Cameron yesterday condemned the slaughter of the soldier by two jihadists, remarking, “We have had these sorts of attacks before in our country, and we never buckle in the face of them,” and yet his government is desperately trying to aid insurgents in Syria who carry out similar atrocities on a regular basis in pursuit of the exact same extremist ideology.

Syrian rebels have been responsible for innumerable beheadings over the course of the conflict, chanting “Allahu Akbar” as they decapitate their victims just as the two terrorists in Woolwich did during their attack yesterday.

This hasn’t stopped Cameron and Hague aggressively pushing for deadly weaponry to be sent to Syrian jihadists. Indeed, even as the attack in London was unfolding yesterday, Cameron was urging that an arms embargo be lifted.

The UK government has attempted to differentiate between “extremist” rebels in Syria linked to the Al-Qaeda group Jabhat al Nusra and so-called “moderate” Free Syrian Army militants. The kind of “moderate” freedom fighters who like to cut out people’s hearts on camera and eat them….while chanting “Allahu Akbar”.'

The UK Government has not supplied weapons to the Syrian Opposition and it has no policy aimed at doing so. I am not a supporter of UK policy in relation to the Syrian Opposition, and I share your concern that Islamic fundamentalists will gain the upper hand in Syrua, but your blog does not represent the actual position of the UK Government.

"The UK Government has not supplied weapons to the Syrian Opposition and it has no policy aimed at doing so."

The British government said the same thing during the Libya crisis - sadly whilst they were also deploying special forces over there to assist the anti-Gaddafi rebels/terrorists. Unfortunately, for the British government at least, their subterfuge was exposed on two fronts; once when video footage emerged of SF personnel fighting alongside rebel forces, and again when a contingent of SF soldiers, who were there with Foreign Office officials, were captured and again paraded before the TV cameras.

If you still think Billy Hague isn't arming the psycho-terrorists in Syria, then I've a seafront property in Denver I'd like to try and sell you.

The psycho-terrorists in Syria are being armed by the Saudis on one side and the Russians on the other,

Andrew, I think we're probably in danger of violently agreeing as they say. I think western policy towards the so called Arab Spring has been a disaster. Libya is a good case in point But forces have been unleashed over which the west has limited influence. Things don't just go wrong because of western meddling. In Syria, for instance, we are in part witnessing a struggle between powerful countries in the region, with Saudi Arabia and Qatar supporting some opposition groups while Russia and Iran try to shore up the Assad regime.
