Vote for UK Conservatives to escalate Syria war: Opposition

London: A vote for UK's ruling Conservative Party is a vote to escalate the war in Syria and prolong the suffering of its people, the opposition Labour Party has said. The remarks on Thursday came after it emerged that Prime Minister Theresa May could try to push a motion through the House of Commons on joining military action against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad if she wins The June 8 snap general elections, The Guardian reported.

Labour MP Emily Thornberry said such a move would "risk open conflict between our armed forces and those of Russia and Iran" and could lead the UK to repeat the mistakes of the Iraq war. She warned May against allowing the UK to "follow (US President) Donald Trump's lead with blind loyalty, no matter where it takes us, and no matter what our other allies think."

The Labour Party, the Liberal Democrats, the Scottish National Party and Greens are lining up to oppose any escalation of military action against the Syrian President. "Instead of this headlong rush to war, the British government should be working flat out through the UN to support the current talks on de-escalation of the conflict, with a view to creating a permanent ceasefire, a political solution and a lasting peace."

"That is what the Syrian people need, not Theresa May's secret plans to escalate the war," The Guardian quoted Thornberry as saying. Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron, said it was deeply worrying that May "would back military intervention against Assad in Syria outside of a wider diplomatic strategy and without UN backing."
