Plucky Little Rebels

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a right-winger with a party full of scheming backbiters and screaming baboons, and an economic "recovery" which will most likely benefit mainly those who caused the collapse, must be in want of a war. What with the provocations of Cristina Fernández de Kirchner having fizzled out for the time being, and the SAS being apparently disinclined to storm the Ecuadorean embassy, and the Euro-wogs wearily shaking their strange foreign heads, and the most nearly Churchillian things about him being his hairline and his waistline, Britain's Head Boy is evidently becoming worried at the lack of a worthy quagmire. Accordingly, his special nuncio to Belize, Willem den Haag, has been blathering up the advantages of getting stuck into Syria. Apparently we can arm the opposition after all, with no danger of escalation, so long as the weapons are clearly marked Not For Extremist Use, because "there are a lot of good Syrians, I can assure you". Well, that's a relief. These conditions being met, the whole adventure will be just like the liberation of Libya, which had such salutary consequences for one of the Reverend Blair's more reputable chums and which had no knock-on effects at all in, for example, Mali; at least, not for anyone who mattered.
