London – PM David Cameron declared it is time to join the blitz against ISIS as Britain cannot “subcontract its security to other countries”.
After considering the distasteful outcome of western interference in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libiya, a lot of Britishers were earlier cautious about joining the Middle eastern war some even convinced these measures led to the creation of militant outfits like ISIS. However, after ISIS took the responsibility for Paris attacks, some parliamentarians who were earlier circumspect about operations in middle east believe its required to protect Britain from such untoward attacks.
Many Britons are wary of entering into another war in the Middle East after Western intervention in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya failed to bring stability to the region and some believe this led to the rise of militants groups such as Islamic State. But after Islamic State claimed responsibility for killings in Paris, some members of parliament who were reluctant to launch further military action in the Syria now feel it is necessary to protect Britain from such attacks.
David Cameron lost a vote on launching ariel offensive against Syarian forces and President Bashar al-Assad’s combatants few years back, now he has to bring around some members of his own party and opposition’s as well if he has to win parliamentary support for the offensives. He seems to have convinced two out of thirty rebels who decided against him in 2013 but rest of the opposition parliamentarians told he is yet to answer in what way the bombing would achieve peace.
In his 24 page written response to parliaments foreign affairs commitee, he said, “We don’t have the luxury of being able to wait until the Syrian conflict is resolved before tackling ISIL” and a policy to broaden the strikes was “incoherent” without a gameplan to defeat the ISIS. He further added that, “Its wrong for United Kingdom to sub-contract its security to other countries and to expect the air crews of other nations to carry out the burdens and the risks of striking ISIL in Syria to stop terrorism here in Britain”. He further stated that he didn’t want to provide Islamic state a “propaganda coup” by a losing vote as well so he would not put a vote to parliament unless he is sure that there was a majority backing action.
Cameron told that with the menace presently as high as it could be, the only way out is to “degrade” Islamic state.
