Now China has reserved the right to respond. Let's hope they're not overly influenced by America's precedent-setting response to US embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania. The American administration, in typically gung- ho style, blew up a medical factory in Sudan, thinking wrongly that it was a nerve gas production plant. And there was more than a whiff of politically expedient timing with Clinton embroiled in a sex scandal.
Britain has been drawn into a continuous double act with its friends across the pond, pandering to and reinforcing this bizarre gun-toting defence-of-the-free-world nonsense. Nato must take responsibility for its mistakes and the people of democratic Nato countries must take responsibility for their governments.
