Britain's Prime Minister David Cameron at 10 Downing Street in London, Friday, Aug. 30 2013. Cameron lost a vote endorsing military action against Syria by 13 votes Thursday, a stunning defeat that will almost guarantee that Britain plays no direct role in any U.S. attack on Bashar Assad's government. Cameron said that while he still believed in a "tough response" to the alleged use of chemical weapons by Assad's regime, he would respect the will of Parliament. Cameron was meeting with Chief Minister of Gibraltar Fabian Picardo in Downing Street Friday for talks on the border dispute with Spain. (AP Photo / Lewis Whyld, Pool)
