Utländska tidningar om krigshetsen

Man kan snabbt konstatera att utländska tidningar varit på hugget med att framföra samma kritik och farhågor om USA:s krigshets mot Syrien, som jag gjort här på bloggen — och som i stort sett (men inte helt) lyst med sin frånvaro i svenska tidningar. Lilla Sverige vill inte irritera den store Obama när vårt luftslott till folkhem får storbesök nästa vecka.

Guardian: ”Syria crisis: experts split over western intervention. Some military figures balk at thought of attacks, while others including Tony Blair favour action. […] expert opinion is dramatically divided on how to respond to the use of a weapon of mass destruction.” Länk

Guardian: ”Archbishop of Canterbury urges caution on Syria. Justin Welby says MPs must consider all aspects of ‘delicate and dangerous situation'” Länk

Guardian: ”MPs and Syria: in the shadow of IraqLänk

YouGov (för Sunday Times): ”Send medicine to Syria, not guns or soldiers. The British public is still widely opposed to sending our troops – or even weapons – to Syria” Länk

NY Times: ”Strike on Syria Would Lead to Retaliation on Israel, Iran Warns. Iranian lawmakers and commanders issued stark warnings to the United States and its allies on Tuesday, saying any military strike on Syria would lead to a retaliatory attack on Israel fanned by ‘the flames of outrage.’” Länk

Washington Post: ”Imminent U.S. strike on Syria could draw nation into civil war. An imminent U.S. strike on Syrian government targets in response to the alleged gassing of civilians last week has the potential to draw the United States into the country’s civil war, former U.S. officials said Tuesday, warning that history doesn’t bode well for such limited retaliatory interventions.” Länk

Washington Post: ”Russia says Western attack on Syria would be ‘catastrophic’” Länk

Los Angeles Times: ”Chemical weapons and Syria: How do you deter a desperate despot?” Länk

Los Angeles Times: ”Syria chemical weapons response poses major test for Obama. Obama, who before taking office vowed to end the foreign policies of Bush, is now wrestling with some of the same moral and legal realities.” Länk

Det finns mer, mycket mer. Men detta räcker här och nu.
