'In a pre-election speech, Mr Corbyn revealed that the only military actions he could bring himself to endorse since the Second World War were the peacekeeping operations in East Timor and Cyprus PA.'


Doesn't seem to care a lot for the oppressed in other countries; Kosovo, Sarajevo, Palestine, Rwanda, pretty much all of the Middle East.

I get the impression he may of voted for action against Germany after the blitz had started, who gives a monkeys about Poland, France, none of it is our problem.

you might well think they're bell-ends but you can't disagree on their point in this case.

don't think you can disagree either that the current 'Windrush' initiative looks like nothing more than a desperate Tory party trying to scoop up the votes of racist ex-UKIPpers.

I must have missed the use of "care bombs" in those countries.

I am Labour through and through, I dont care about the Tories actions.

The reality is, at times decisions have to be made that are not decisions you would like to make.

The poorest in society have to be protected, closing the eyes does not help.

Yes, they do.

But in the examples you quoted the only contentious one is former Yugoslavia. If we had stayed out would it have got worse, is everything resolved now? Did enforcing the "no-fly" zone contribute to ending the blood shed?

Rwanda would have been very difficult to be involved with and as for "Palestine and pretty much all of the Middle East" that has not been improved by 70 plus years of war that I do not see any possible role for us that would not make matters worse (for example regime change has been almost universally disastrous in the short/medium term for the poor of those countries)

I think it is beyond time that we stopped trying to be a big dog on the world stage and backed off, we've done enough harm out there. So I do think there is merit in Corbyn's more thoughtful approach and

I am interested in war and military stuff, but I have to admit war brings death, misery, unhappiness, hatred. 90% of wars are pointless. It tends to be the weakest that are hurt in war the most.

WW2 was a good war, but in my opinion it was caused by WW1 - a bad war about disputes between royal families and very rich people.

The middles east has never been anything but a mess since time immemorial. OK leave it to them. Whoever is the strongest (Israel) let them loose and finish the job.

Leave Suni's to murder Shia and visa versa, turn off the news so it does not bother us.

Let children be gassed, whats the point of caring? Let Russia veto any help they deserve.

My dad taught me to despise war, no-one wins ever, but you have to care.

I agree you have to care.

But if 70 plus years of trying to help by selling them munitions and sporadically punishing them for using those munitions has not taught us the futility of this, I'm not sure what will.

What a sniveling little XXXXXX. Have you ever stopped to consider the millions who owe their freedom to the UK? Nah, course you haven't. Did you ever tell a ww2 veteran that they had done enough harm out there? Nah, course you didn't.

Gene proving he is unable to grasp a point, yet again.

WWII was nearly 80 years ago now; what relevance does that have as to what we do now on the world stage?

If you want to talk about the good we've done in recent times, lets talk about Iraq and the WMDs or the mess we've helped create and leave in Afghanistan. How about Libya?

All to be a puppet to American wants and desires.
