Anyone have faith in these two lightweights?
Why in the world do you need Iraq involved in the first place? you need only to blow up their supply lines in Syria and in Iraq and their well known depot areas etc., you already have air superiority.
We’ll join US to crush the jihadists, vows PM: Britain signs up to mission to destroy Islamic State in Syria and Iraq
- David Cameron said the West faced a struggle against poisonous extremism
- He added that all options would be considered to support regional allies
- Barack Obama declared: ‘The bottom line is we will do what is necessary’
Britain last night signed up to a mission to crush the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.
David Cameron said the West faced a generational struggle against poisonous extremism and all options would be considered to support regional allies.
Barack Obama declared: ‘The bottom line is we will do what is necessary.’
The US president’s secretary of state said it might take years but the self-styled caliphate would be wiped out.
John Kerry told the Nato summit in Newport, Wales: ‘Leaving them in some capacity intact anywhere would leave a cancer in place that will ultimately come back to haunt us.’
The US asked nine other countries to join what it called a ‘core coalition’ against IS: Britain, France, Germany, Canada, Australia, Turkey, Italy, Poland and Denmark.
Mr Cameron said: ‘Clearly, military commitment is required and what I’ve said is that nothing is ruled out. We’ll act in our national interest.’
However, the Prime Minister stressed Britain was ‘not yet at that stage’ and joining air strikes could only happen after the formation of a properly representative government in Iraq.
