Revealed: Britain sold nerve gas chemicals to Syria 10 months after war began - the hypocrisy sinks to still new depths
'Furious politicians have demanded Prime Minister David Cameron
explain why chemical export licences were granted to firms last January –
10 months after the Syrian uprising began.Britain allowed firms to sell chemicals to Syria capable of being
used to make nerve gas, we can reveal today. Export licences for
potassium fluoride and sodium fluoride were granted months after the
bloody civil war in the Middle East began ..... Mark Bitel of the Campaign
Against Arms Trade (Scotland) said: “The UK Government claims to have an
ethical policy on arms exports, but when it comes down to practice the
reality is very different.“The Government is hypocritical to talk about chemical weapons if
it’s granting licences to companies to export to regimes such as Syria.
We saw David Cameron, in the wake of the Arab Spring, rushing off to the
Middle East with arms companies to promote business.”'
