Stunning Defeat for Obama's War Plans: UK Won't Support

People take part in a protest calling for no military attack on Syria from the U.S., Britain or France, outside the Houses of Parliament, in London, organized by the Stop the War coalition and timed to coincide with a debate and vote by politicians, Thursday, Aug. 29, 2013. Britain’s leaders said Thursday it would be legal under humanitarian doctrine to launch a military strike against Syria even without authorization from the United Nations Security Council. Prime Minister David Cameron’s office said the legal conditions have been met for taking action against Syria for allegedly launching a chemical attack against civilians in a Damascus suburb last week.

BREAKING

In a major blow to the US war plans, British Prime Minister David Cameron suffered a stunning defeat in tonight’s Parliament vote to endorse UK/US military action against Syria.

Cameron’s motion was defeated 285 to 272, a majority of 13 votes. Cameron said it was clear Parliament does not want action and “the government will act accordingly.”

It effectively rules out British involvement in any US-led strikes against the Assad regime.
