George Galloway’s Statement in UK Parliament on Isis airstrikes – YouTube. WATCH.
George Galloway gave one of the most controversial speeches in today’s parliamentary debate considering the whether the UK should take action against the Islamic State in Iraq, as MPs tried to shout down the Respect MP.
Galloway told MPs that the terrorist group, popularly known as ISIS or ISIL, only controlled so much of Iraq as the population allowed them to do so, angered by previous Western military actions.
“That population is quiescent because of Western policies and Western invasion,” he said, adding that the group “could not survive for five minutes if the tribes of Western Iraq rose up against them.”
MPs are debating whether to send the Royal Air Force to the US-led bombing campaign, but British air strikes will be limited to Iraq rather than IS strongholds in Syria.
george galloway speaks a lot of sense on this subject.
