Today's news shows just how right British MP's were who voted against war. David Cameron tried to sell parliament a limited, 'humanitarian intervention' and promised that we wouldn't be taking sides.
Now the truth is out.
Hawkish Republicans are now all over the U.S. media explaining that Obama has privately briefed them about plans that amount to a declaration of war against Assad.
No more talk of an attack of limited duration with narrowly limited targets. The whole of Assad's war machine is now in the U.S.'s sights.
Air strikes as well as missile strikes are now under discussion. More military support for the rebels is also in the frame.
