Missiles Aimed in Wrong Direction?

The Government was accused of “breathtaking laxity” in its arms controls last night after it emerged that officials authorised the export to Syria of two chemicals capable of being used to make a nerve agent such as sarin a year ago.

The Business Secretary, Vince Cable, will today be asked by MPs to explain why a British company was granted export licences for the dual-use substances for six months in 2012 while Syria’s civil war was raging and concern was rife that the regime could use chemical weapons on its own people. The disclosure of the licences for potassium fluoride and sodium fluoride, which can both be used as precursor chemicals in the manufacture of nerve gas, came as the US Secretary of State John Kerry said the United States had evidence that sarin gas was used in last month’s atrocity in Damascus.

Oh SNAP!

You mean we authorized the British to sell them something that they could have or might have used to produce nerve agent? Oh wait, there is no reason to fret that since we gave Saddam tons of the stuff, and a lot of it was smuggled to Syria before and during the second gulf war. The real question is why do we care what happened.

We really need to learn to mind our own business and tend to our interests as a nation. We should leave the rest of the world to hang itself on it's own petard.
