The Wrong Thing for the Right Reason

Parliament in the United Kingdom has voted against the United Kingdom participating in punishment of the Syrian Government for the time being, I expect it was a case of many members doing the right thing for the wrong reasons but it has prevented the United Kingdom doing the wrong thing for the right reason. Now brave sailors in submarines five hundred miles from Syria will not bravely push buttons to launch Cruise missiles which may or may not hit the right targets or the wrong targets and explode. It seems that the United Kingdom will leave the honour of these actions to The United States of America and the Republic of France.
