Nt govt should be supporting intervention efforts to try to save lives of Syrian children.”
Now the government and its international backer countries, not to mention the vast majority of Americans, are backing it.
According to the UK Independent, Mr Cameron is “encouraging other EU countries to join a UN effort to train and arm Syrian rebels fighting Isis.”
Now the question is: what is the plan, exactly?
It is now clear, according 온라인 바카라 사이트to the BBC, that the UK will have to spend up to £4.7 million ($8.7 million) to train local forces, and provide military equipment.
This is just one piece of the puzzle, as UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has indicated that the total cost will “probably” be at least £7 million to train and equip some rebels.
At present, only 3.5 percent of the rebels in the fight against Isis are fighting with the support of the UK government;
Most of these rebels are from the Free Syrian Army (FSA) which has been fighting alongside the Syrian National Council (SNC);
Almost half of all foreign fighters in Isis have come from Europe and Africa;
In order to train those local fighters, the government may have to spend tens of millions of pounds.
On the other hand, there are more than 400,000 Syrian refugees in Turkey, where they are in refugee camps.
Mr Ban has already declared that Turkey would never let tens of thousands of people from across the Middle East, North Africa, and the Middle East “go back to the same lives in the same countries they lived in before Isis,” adding: “We want to stop the flow of new people from Syria.”
So the question is: Will the UK and other western countries join the effort, or will they continue to back the so-called moderate opposition, and not risk the future of the Syrian government?
