Cameron should just stay out of it

I chilled at the thought of David Cameron contemplating military action on Syria, and ask, did he not learn anything from Blair's fiasco?

So, I say to Mr Cameron, let's imagine for one moment that it was Russia or China that was using nerve gas on a section of its citizens – would he contemplate military action there also?

Somehow, I do not think so.

Syria's problems belong to them. Their problem is not a British problem, the Arab world is big enough and rich enough to solve their own problems. If the atrocities there do not interest them, why should it interest us?
