SIR – I concur with the views of David Hornsby (Letters, August 26). Although I suspect any repercussions from David Cameron’s flagrant war-mongering in the Middle East are unlikely to be felt in Chipping Norton.

Nonetheless, in two ways this is a very clever manoeuvre by Cameron.

Firstly it may convince the Tory right flirting with the the idea of supporting UKIP, that he is ‘tough on Muslims’. Secondly, and in tandem with the Olympic class war-mongers, the USA, his war-mongering may well see British troops involved in Syria when, once firmly established, a little ‘mission creep’ could allow the UK and USA to achieve their original aim of deposing Assad in Syria (much to the delight of the other war-mongers, and strange bed-fellows, Israel, Saudi Arabia and Qatar).

The reason for the urgency to depose Assad, of course, is to facilitate the playboy Gulf States building a pipeline through Syria to supply Europe, thus denying Russia the European gas market.

The real US aim, of course, is to isolate Russia economically, given that Russia is one of the major threats to the efficacy of the US dollar, and by definition, on-going US hegemony.

Pretty clever, eh? (until Russia says ‘that’s enough!’)
