It’s an odd one. The “it could have been staged by the rebels” and “what good can come of intervention?” viewpoints were really starting to gain traction in the UK; in fact General Jonathan Shaw was making just that point on Sky News when he was inexplicably cut off earlier today. The tide was certainly running against action, in my view anyway. This accusation by Russia makes it a lot harder for those viewpoints to get a fair hearing and if anything strengthens the Government’s case for action. Do we think Russia actually *wants* us to attack so that it can exploit divisions in the aftermath?
