British Parliament Debates Military Strike on Syria

Hosted by

With no chance of support from the UN Security Council, President Obama wants allied support if he decides to punish Syria with military action. Today, British Prime Minister David Cameron made the case to Parliament, referring to videos of bodies with "symptoms consistent with nerve agent exposure, including muscle spasms and foaming at the mouth and nose…all inflicted by weapons that have been outlawed for a century." But some members of Cameron's own coalition government and the opposition, including Labour Party leader Ed Miliband, called for delay. Julian Borger is diplomatic editor for the Guardian and a former correspondent in the Middle East.
