A criminal act

So the Greek Catholic Patriarch of Antioch, Gregory III describes the impending attack on Syria by the United States, which he rightly notes will only swell the number of victims rather than decrease it.

As the invaluable David Lindsay notes, this criminal act is being opposed by people across the political spectrum in the United Kingdom as well, from Peter Hitchens to Seumas Milne, and from Stephen Glover to Robert Fisk. Quite unlike the ostensibly-representative governments of all three countries, solid majorities in Germany, in France and in the UK oppose this criminal act. (Though it is indeed refreshing to see that the British parliament is thinking better of this folly, and Labour in particular.)

Not to mention, of course, a solid majority in my own country.
