So Tim do you think anybody in Parliament will press the PM to drop aid to the Kurds & Syrian civilians? BTW did you do your job as a journalist & ask off the record if anybody thinks the Chilcott report will ever get released? BTW did you sit in the seat Murdoch sat in & soon Phil Green will sit in ?
PM will be pressed on aid – but there are many complications. Chilcott will be released. it is written, now being checked in case security sensitive info has gone in without authors knowing.
Yes one day Chicott will be released in meaningless heavily censored form whitewashing Blair, Brown & Whitehall mandarins, but it will be released unlike the Balen report.

This was a fascinating insight into the current situation in Iraq, Iran and Syria and the brutally simple explanation of people fighting for President Assad because they’re terrified of ISIS put it all into context. It also damaged beyond repair the myth that President Assad is supporting ISIS.
From what has been described in this hearing I do not look forward to the battle for Mossul, this could get very ugly.
A good watch and a good showing by yourself Tim. Probably the less said about certain MP’s the better.
Regarding Mosul and what the panel said. Mosul could very well go horribly wrong. I didn’t start off watching with much faith in regard to the chap on the right, with glasses. But he was right in one regard. The fighting is so heavy when it really kicks off that all you are left with is ruins. And across Syria a lot of pictures present a battlescarred scene with absolute destruction in the foreground.
If Mosul sinks into a full on, hand to hand, house to house fight, with unending IEDs and localised chemical weapons, its a city of 2.5 million. No one should be under any illusion abut how bloody that mess can end up.
I have a personal opinion in this that ISIS should be gutted in every plausable way before trying to deal with Mosul. The weaker it can be made to be before that fight will have a direct affect on how much blood and loss and terror occur in Mosul.
