Mia Farrow isn’t happy with the “British bystanders” in Parliament who voted Thursday against military intervention in Syria. Farrow is certainly no isolationist: in the face of genocide in Darfur, she led the effort to have corporations pull their sponsorship of China’s “Genocide Olympics” in 2008. Today’s vote in Britain, though, was to authorize a military response, which even the Red Cross has warned could “likely trigger more displacement and add to humanitarian needs.”
@MiaFarrow that was a bit harsh .

It does seem strange that one of the most vocal proponents of gun control would have an itchy trigger finger when it comes to possible air strikes.
@MiaFarrow There is no evidence that bombing them will do anything but makes things worse and get us involved in another war.

@MiaFarrow not at all clear bombings would help, is the problem. There are things we could do but not clear those things are starting wars.

@MiaFarrow That's ridiculous Mia and surprising coming from you. Swap the poison gas for the US bombs. Is that a more moral way to die?

@MiaFarrow Respectfully, why do you blame the Britsh? Russia and China have blocked action in the Security Council.

@MiaFarrow Surprised you think some token bombing will prevent more of this. Like it or not we need to go via UN and involve Iran and Russia

@MiaFarrow Brits chose to break the cycle of violence seeing no good options beyond supporting refugees. This truth trumps your indignation.

@MiaFarrow Ms. Farrow, as horrific as the situation is now, US/UK "shots across the bow" would only intensify the conflict. @fionabt9

@MiaFarrow and british bombs will help how Mia? What an idiotic thing to say. Perhaps you should actually watch the Commons debate.
