Syria bombing shows Mrs May's weakness.

MRS May attempts to claim the moral high ground for bypassing Parliament in her haste to join Trump and Macron in a futile gesture of bombing which can only delay the chemical weapons watchdog from travelling to the scene of the attack.

This is an American military action which Mrs May opted to back rather than make diplomatic efforts to investigate the use of chemical weapons and to end the suffering of the Syrian people by working with Russia to bring Assad to the negotiating table.

This is a weak Prime Minister of a minority government who seeks to appear strong by means of more bombing of Syria even at the cost of usurping the supremacy of Parliament based on the rule of law.
