BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:40 P.M.) – The Foreign Secretary of the United Kingdom, Boris Johnson, told BBC radio on Thursday that if the U.S. chooses to attack the Syrian government again, his regime may participate in the strike.

“If the Americans were once again to be forced by the actions of the Assad regime … and they ask us to help it would be very difficult to say no,” Johnson told BBC radio.

Johnson has repeatedly accused the Syrian government of carrying out the sarin gas attack on the southern Idlib town of Khan Sheikhoun in early April, despite the fact both Russia and Assad denied responsibility.

The Foreign Secretary has hinted at intervention on a number of occasions in the last few weeks, so his recent comments do not come as a surprise.

What can I say. Boris Johnson is rather like Trump. Since their rise to power in government BOTH have turned 180 degrees and support the Military Industrial Complex’s of their respective nations. Both now want war.

Both have either been bribed or blackmailed. Boris also has a politically opinionated wife who now has real financial power over him as a price for all his Peccadillo’s 🙂

Both do a big discredit to honesty and common sense that further embarrasses their nations.

This is an old-school way of preparing an aggressive war.
“If the Americans were once again to be forced by the actions of the Assad regime…” (Johnson, 2017)
“If international Jewry were once again to succeed in dragging the peoples into a World War…” (Hitler, 1939)
I only hope Johnson’s fate will be similar to Hitler’s six years from now.

In which case Syria can rightfully act in self-defence and destroy the parts of Cyprus which are illegally occupied by armed British and US-American gangs as a staging ground for their attacks on Arab countries.

Pathetic Not-so-Great Britain is now a US minion with no independent foreign policy. Why do they bother to have a Govenment in London? Close it and take orders from Washington.
