Re: U.S, UK and France Launch Missile Strikes in Syria

Corbyn is just a bad leader. He lacks redeeming qualities as a leader. He isn’t leadership savvy. Theresa May qualities are lacking also. But out of the choice of the two, May clearly wins.

Corbyn would plunder this country in to one huge shithole. He would abolish the Monachy. Drive up the National Dept and he would scrap Trident, leaving us severely defenceless, he would insult the U.S or snub them, there goes our key ally. He would hand Gilbralta back to Spain, let Argentina take the Falklands.

Corbyn is a dangerous man, not this nice luvvy few portray him as. The Putin appeasers mission would be complete when he finally depletes democracy.

Re: U.S, UK and France Launch Missile Strikes in Syria

Me thinks an issue today is not how competent a leader is but how competent they appear to be, especially on the media.

Mrs May and her cabinet could (and do) have information we don't and may needed to act more swiftly than could be done with a recall of parliament. They fulfilled the legal requirement and acted in coordination with our allies. Her issue then is how to communicate that without "leaking" any secrets and not appearing to be either weak (at the beck and call of the US) or overly aggressive or indecisive or arrogant.

We elect our leaders and give them certain powers and expect them to use them. If we agree with them there isn't too much of a problem but if we don't we think they shouldn't use those powers without much discussion first.

Re: U.S, UK and France Launch Missile Strikes in Syria

Interesting summary here in Air Force Magazine about the strike package used by the US element.

They got to try out their shiny new(ish) JASSM stealthy cruise missiles: 19 of them which would have been launched well within Syrian/Russian air defence range. Not just a case of flinging Tomahawks out of a destroyer or submarine from a safe distance.
