|A cocky bugger spotted in Tripoli|
Another wretched dictator is overthrown. The next move is on that tyrant in Syria. But he won't be shifted with the help of Britain. The British government sees Bashar al-Assad, the murderous leader of Syria, as different clay. Pity. I would have hoped that all the rhetoric about democracy and freedom would spill over into Syria. British speak with forked tongue! The Arab Spring is not seen as equal to all Arabs.
Britain has always claimed to have "interests". Surely in the 21st century we should be true to our word at last. David Cameron speaks smoothly about Libya. How about a bit of consistency and meting out the same treatment to Assad?
