David Cameron is sucking Britain into something he hasn't seriously thought through, says MP Jeremy Corbyn. The conflict in Mali could be long and bloody, reminiscent of Afghanistan.
Jeremy Corbyn MP interviewed on 29 January 2013.
Chair of Stop the War Coalition, Jeremy Corbyn MP, says David Cameron is sucking Britain in to something he hasn't seriously thought through. It is reminiscent of Asfhanistan in 2001, all "hunky dory" at the start but after a few months the western armies were dragged into a war which has now lasted over eleven years.
The intervention in Mali, says Corbyn, could be a very long and bloody conflict.
Jeremy Corbyn is speaking, alongside Noam Chomsky, Tariq Ali, Owen Jones, and many more, at the international conference, Confronting War Today, in London on 9 February 2013.
Speakers from across the world will discuss and plan opposition to continuing and future wars at an international conference in London on Saturday 9 February. As millions around the world predicted, the war on terror has caused catastrophe from Afghanistan and Pakistan through Iraq and the Middle East to Libya, Somalia and beyond.
The Conference will bring together leading activists and commentators from across the world -- including from Afghanistan, Iraq, USA, Palestine, Ghana and Canada -- to analyse continuing Western aggression and how to confront it.
