HARLOW MP Robert Halfon has My thoughts on the UK-France-USA military action against President Assad’s use of chemical weapons:
Mr Halfon said: “After the Second World War we said “NeverAgain”. After many other atrocities since, we also say “NeverAgain”.
The free world, cannot allow chemical weapons to be used against innocent civilians and allow the gassing of women and children. This happened in 2013 in Syria and the world did nothing. We cannot repeat the same mistake.
I strongly support the Prime Minister in her joint military action with France and America – backed by NATO, the EU and many democratic countries such as Canada, Denmark, Germany, Holland, Sweden, and many others.
A few years ago, I went to Halabja, in Northern Iraq. There, the Kurds had been mustard-gassed by Saddam Hussein, with thousands dead. It was a place of the dead. The after-effects are still felt today.
Let us not stand by. Britain has a proud and historic role in standing up to Dictators. The Syrian people, their families and friends, the innocents slaughtered and maimed from chemical attacks by Assad, deserve our support.
“Let Never Again really mean something”.
