Stop All Intervention in Syria and Let the People Decide Their Future

British politicians calling for further intervention in Syria are ignoring the lessons of Libya and Iraq


'When your interventions over the past 15 years have failed, what do you do? Well, blame the organisation which opposed them in the first place.'

It's hard to listen to parliamentary debates on foreign policy without a growing sense of disbelief.

We saw one again this week, this time over the horrific situation in Aleppo. Most politicians suffer a kind of selective amnesia over past interventions. They bemoan the fact that David Cameron lost the vote to bomb Syria back in 2013, and claim that things would be better there now had MPs voted to intervene.

But they ignore the record of such interventions and the scathing criticisms of them from official bodies, including their own parliamentary select committees.
