Reader’s Comment: We don’t have the blood or treasure to spill over Syria


In response to Patrick Benham-Crosswell: A no-fly zone in Syria risks war with Russia, Mike Hunt wrote:

We should keep our noses out of Syria. The UK didn’t start the war, but it likely that our intervention in Libya and diplomatic pressure in Egypt helped sow the seeds of discontent.

We should not put the population of the UK at risk of a world war by stirring things up with Russia. As pointed out, the aircraft the Turks shot down was an old Su24 from the same era as the Harrier jet. The Russians have excellent modern aircraft and air defences— we would lose a lot of our own aircraft, and who knows where this could escalate.

If we lost 10 million UK citizens in a global conflict sparked by Syria, would we think this was a price worth paying?
