Thought Police, Chequing Yourself, and More Posturing On Syria

War Drums a’Beating Again. Thanks to Peter Hitchens again for bringing such an important matter to attention: as tensions between Saudi Arabia and Iran escalate, the UK establishment seems unconcerned about potentially diving into another banal and destructive war in the Middle East, this time through Syria.
