OPINION: UKIP Must Oppose A Syrian War
I remember the Iraq war and the immediate build-up and it felt something pretty similar to how the political climate is right now. Rather than a drumbeat, we have a drip-drip, the point of the Skirpral incident was to promote the idea that rather than a far-away and distant problem Russia is a clear and present danger to British citizens as much as Syrians or Russians.
The accusation against the Kremlin in the Skripal case is still far from proven and now we have an alleged ‘Chemical Attack’ in Syria which looks suspiciously like a false flag. In fact, the British government’s case is on the brink of total collapse. This probably brought forward the timing of the ‘happening’ in Syria.
Syria was always the end game. The bottom line is that the Western-backed rebels, who include ISIS in their number, are on the brink of total defeat and the axis of Assad, Iran and Russia is on the brink of victory. So, of course, the one thing that could impede that, though not necessarily prevent it, is outrage-backed intervention from the globalist cartel that calls itself the ‘international community’ so, President Assad, being a cunning fox did everything in his power to ensure that happens, right? Probably not. Gerard Batten was entirely right to ask the question on Twitter.
Like everyone else, I have no idea where the truth lies regarding this attack on innocent civilians. But I have to ask, why would Assad launch such an attack knowing what the consequences might be? Who benefits? Certainly not him. https://t.co/eaVplxzjp2

Regardless of whether Assad did it or not there is a deeper contextual point. Globalists crave popular acclaim for the idea that the world needs a policeman. If it needs a policeman then it must need a government too. The very notion that any nation state should act as a ‘policeman’ strikes right at the core of sovereignty which means ultimately means self-determination. If patriots accept it on any level they are undermining their own cause fatally even if it is their ‘own’ state acting in this role.
A patriotic foreign policy doesn’t allow for any nation to play with others like Rome did its dominions in times gone by. It only allows for a policy of self-preservation on the global stage. A selfish, self-interested foreign policy is a patriotic one. On this level intervening in Syria is a spectacularly bad idea because of the clearest and present danger is actually present on the rebel side in form of ISIS. President Assad may be a brute and a bully but he is in no way shape or form a threat to British lives in the way that ISIS is and this is simply unarguable objective reality.
So, we come to UKIP. It should go without saying that the above mandates only one position and that is clear and unequivocal opposition to military intervention in Syria. Any other position moves it from being the resistance to globalism and the globalist club, which counts the British government as one of its members, to its stooge. Great evil is done every day in the world by a myriad of governments, many of them feted as allies by the two-faced West, and behind it all lurks the greatest evil of them all, the hidden hand of the globalist elite who want this more than anything. We should not be complicit in giving them what they want.
