The Labour leadership candidate said it would be “disrespectful” to the public to try to ambush the opposition.
“The message I would just send back to Cameron at this stage is: Treat us with respect because it’s not about the Labour Party,” he told the Huffington Post.
“The opposition is the country in this, we’ve got to test what they are saying on behalf of the country.
“And if they try to bounce the opposition into this they are not treating the country with respect.”
The result of Labour’s leadership election will be revealed at a special conference on Saturday September 12 — five days before MPs are due to sit again on September 17. However there have been suggestions Mr Cameron is preparing to recall Parliament.
Mr Burnham said he would not rule out support for bombing if he becomes leader, but suggested it would be illegal.
Now the government is under pressure to investigate claims the raids have claimed the lives of 459 civilians, including more than 100 children.
SNP foreign affairs spokesman Alex Salmond said: “The government’s behaviour in this matter is entirely unacceptable — effectively participating in a bombing campaign by stealth. We now need an investigation into these new findings on civilian deaths and we need it urgently.”
UK Prime Minister David Cameron’s announcement in parliament Monday that he had authorised the extra-judicial killings of British citizens in Syria raises issues of fundamental importance: here.

The road to war is paved with a thousand lies. A fresh fib was tossed on the lie-cluttered warpath to Syria, when it was announced that the U.S. and Turkey would create a “safe zone” inside of Syria — supposedly to be aimed against ISIS: here.
