The Iraq/Syria problem

Rumours abound that our government is about to do a deal with Bashar al-Assad so that we would be able to fly into Syrian air space without being shot at, fair enough you might say, but what are the details?

This is what I have said about the Syrian situation in the past:-

While it might be right to deal with the infection at the root cause, one has to wonder how the infection started in the first place. One reason might be that Bashar al-Assad treated his people so badly that a faction started which has now grown out of all proportions to the local region and is consequently spreading across the globe.

Perhaps we should bear this in mind while making deals with tyrants!
