UK air strikes in Iraq and Syria

This is what I wrote to my MP, Liz Kendall:

I understand the impulse to do something when you see the evil being doing by IS (and others) in Iraq and Syria and potentially in the UK.  But killing people is wrong.  It has also historically always been counter-productive in that region.  And it seems that there is no good end in sight as a result of going forward with or without air strikes.

Please bear this in mind as my MP when you vote.  Please don’t collude with the message that the support for UK air strikes and ongoing war is somehow patriotic and united – I am one of many patriots who are not united with the idea of going to war.
