Prime Minister David Cameron has made his case for extending UK airstrikes against Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) from Iraq into Syria. He has ruled out using British ground troops and claims disagreements with Russia are ‘narrowing.’
Former Ambassador says Cameron’s strategy is deceitful. He claims 70,000 Syrians are available to attack ISIL. This is an outright lie. Don’t make ourselves hostage to others, the former Ambassador says.
