Where is Britain's Joschka Fischer?

So, as we rush headlong towards another disastrous foreign policy decision I'm asking myself how it is possible that we have filled our legislative chamber with people who  apparently possess such a limited capacity to reason, examine evidence and think clearly about cause and effect? Where is Britain's Joschka Fischer?  

Hilary Benn is a decent enough bloke, but he seems to have checked his brain out on this one. Interviewed on Today this morning he said: "...what happened in Paris could well have happened in London and that is why we have to take action against this group." So, dropping even more bombs on the heads of people in the middle-east is going to reduce the threat of domestic terrorism? And of course there is plenty of evidence to support that belief...What could possibly go wrong?
