|They Hold Human Life So Cheap

I don't know what's going on in The Middle East- and I don't believe anyone who hasn't been immersed in that culture knows either. Alliances are constantly shifting and double games are being played. Oil is a factor. And gas. And some thousand year old dispute about the minutiae of religious loyalty. Dropping bombs on the confusion isn't going to solve a thing.|
Still, Mr Cameron wants to get re-elected and thinks killing foreigners will stand him in good stead. Mr Miliband (who wants Mr Cameron's job) would like a few deaths on his conscience too. And the British public is easily persuaded. If either of these gentlemen were to walk down a British street and let loose with an AK47 the British public would be less impressed but, morally speaking, where's the difference?
