CONFLICT IN SYRIA
Britain Rules Out Military Strike on Syria
LONDON — Prime Minister David Cameron said that Britain would not participate militarily in any strike against Syria after he lost a parliamentary vote by 13 votes on Thursday on an anodyne motion urging an international response.[Times]
1. Used the same word, meaning the same thing, twice in the headline? Bread and water for 30 days!
2. And then used "vote" and "votes" in the same lede? Shoot them!
3. And "anodyne"? No blindfold!
