According to a report from Axios, the UK’s special envoy for Syria, Jonathan Hargreaves, praised Israel’s bombing campaign in Syria during a visit to Jerusalem at the end of June.
In recent years, Israel has launched hundreds of airstrikes in Syria. The Israelis say that the bombing campaign is to prevent Iran from becoming further entrenched in the country, but the strikes often kill Syrian troops and sometimes kill civilians and damage civilian infrastructure.
According to Israeli Foreign Ministry officials, Hargreaves told Israeli officials in Jerusalem that the Israeli bombing campaign is “probably the only thing that works in Syria.” He also said that the UK and other Western countries are basing their Syria policy on the results of the Israeli airstrikes.
The US tacitly endorses the bombing campaign in Syria and reportedly coordinates some of the strikes. In June, The Wall Street Journal reported that Israel secretly coordinates the bombings with the US and that Washington has approved many Israeli airstrikes that were launched from areas near a US base in southern Syria.
On paper, the US is pursuing a policy of regime change in Syria by conditioning sanctions relief on a “political settlement” in Damascus that sees President Bashar al-Assad removed from power. During his meeting with Israeli officials, Hargreaves conceded that the West knows outside pressure won’t bring about regime change and that the strategy now is to focus on changing the government’s behavior.

Where’s the IRA now that we need them?
Oh, they’re still around, Adolpho.
The last time I was in Ireland, a man was stabbed to death in a pub for dissing the IRA. Though there were scores of others in the pub, there were “no witnesses” 😉
And their political arm, Sinn Fein, is now the nation’s dominant party.
My friends there refer to the English as “Bastard Brits” 😁 Erin go bragh!
When you start from a mentality that “praises” war crimes such as having “dam busters” as a division in your military, I challenge anyone to prove that any British officials have any ounce of sanity or humanity whatsoever. Anyone?
Note, there was no mention of how such an attack is an actual war crime.
The British are officially nutters. I thought it was just Boris, who’s hair is trying to escape from his unhinged brain. But it’s the whole lot of them. The government is leading a controlled demolition of their own country.
Syria should take the same stand to this special man – inciter of violence against children –
that UK would have taken against any official praising the ISIS activities on the European soil .
British historically has swung between 2 roles – committing atrocities or supporting someone elses’s.
It has domestic and foreign apologists who swing between 2 roles – sanitizing British past and harking backto historical injustices committed by the mediveal rulers of Asia . Often the last is crafted selectuvelyby the same Britush.
So no surprise that this lechererous admirer of pornographic violence stand up for the murderers of 15 children ,killed ‘ brilliantly in preemtive move ‘ as described by the national Britush loudspeaker of disinformation- BBC.
One has to wonder if Mr. Hargreaves has a pulse…
He appears to have a Zombie-like condition and it isn’t Halloween yet…
Or maybe he has too much starch in his underwear…
