Cameron was asked to explain precisely who were the 70,000 moderate Syrian fighters whom he mentioned when seeking Parliament's approval to launch British air strikes in Syria last year.You could be forgiven for thinking that Assad and Daesh already had a good idea of who they are fighting, bombing and torturing to death on a daily basis, without relying on Cameron to tell them.The inquiry found that Litvinenko was "probably" murdered on the personal order of Russian President Vladimir Putin.In fact, the British government spent years blocking any inquiry into Litvinenko's murder, until Putin, carried away with his own hubris, annexed Crimea and invaded eastern Ukraine in 2014 .The West's desperate need for Putin's cooperation in Syria is misguided. Like Assad, Putin is a thug.In recent months Putin's military intervention has not only successfully strengthened Assad, it has severely weakened the moderate opposition to the regime by focusing as much, if not more, Russian firepower on them as on Daesh. Putin may well bring pressure on Assad to compromise, or even leave power, but only if it suits his overall strategy of increasing Russian influence. One hopes the West does not come to rue the day it allowed Putin and Assad's brutality to take precedent over the principles of international law and justice.
