British PM Needs to Fight against ISIS for British Security in Syria

British PM Needs to Fight against ISIS for British Security in Syria
Thu Nov 26, 2015 17:06:52

David Cameron went to the House of Commons on Thursday to make a case in favor of joining the Syrian campaign. His main argument was that the events in Paris made the fight against ISIS more imperative.

Cameron said Britain must join the coalition in Syria to deny ISIS a “safe haven” from which to plot mass-casualty attacks and that it was wrong for the UK to rely on others.

A parliamentary vote on the issue is expected next week. Earlier this month, parliament’s Foreign Affairs Select Committee said British air strikes would be “incoherent” and ineffective without a plan to end Syria’s civil war.

On Monday, Cameron and French President, Francois Hollande, pledged to step up security measures after the attacks in Paris on November 13 that killed 130 people.

David Cameron is trying to win a wide majority for Britain to join the campaign against the ISIS in Syria. Britain is one of two major military powers in Europe, at par with France, but has thus far refrained from engagement, thereby “subcontracting” its security to others, as the Prime Minister puts it.  Last time the Prime Minister argued the case for intervention in Syria, in 2013, the government was defeated; neurope.eu reported.
