Is Britain getting drawn into too many global conflicts?

Defence Secretary Liam Fox has played down the prospect of a Libya-style military intervention in Syria – saying there were “practical limitations” on how much the UK and allies could do. He urged the regime in Damascus to “pause and reflect” about the consequences of its bloody repression of protests amid widespread condemnation and the threat of sanctions. But he warned people not to expect a similar intervention to Libya.
