Foreign secretary Philip Hammond is to meet foreign ministers in London today to discuss plans to deal with the so-called Islamic State (IS).

David Cameron has said the UK will ‘hunt down’ the killers of aid worker David Haines, who was murdered over the weekend by IS militants. But the prime minister has yet to spell out exactly what form that action will take.

    Yes.

    None of the options offered reflects my view, in simple ‘counting’ terms. I think for the moment we should continue what we are doing – ie humanitarian support, and a cautious equipping of local anti-Isis forces.

    We should get involved with air strikes and SAS to eliminate the threat of IS barbarians and
    rescue hostages if possible.

    NO. It requires a Regional solution. I’d rather have Muslims killing Muslims, than Hindus or Christians or Jews or Sikhs. The Arabs Turks and Iranians should shoulder the responsibility.

    Yes we cannot now allow the mess Blair made to get even worse, this group of people think they are ready for war so give it to them if they want it.
    I’m sure the Americans and the UK have already got boots on the ground with special forces and I hope they have already pin pointed these criminals. The problem for us is arming the people in Iraq will I’m sure end up with another civil war.

    But ISIS is a group of people that we need to end and fast. if it was not for Iraq and Blair and Bush I doubt these people would have risen up.

    That what Blair said when he went into Iraq, better we killed the children and the women and the baddies. Hang on Gaddafi wants to see me.

    UNDER PRESSURE CAMERON HAS COME OUT WITH THE WE WILL HUNT DOWN THE PERPETRATORS RHETORIC BEFORE IT RESULTED IN NO ACTION WHATEVER

    HE IS CLEARLY JUST PLAYING TO THE GALLERY AS THE POPULARITY OF HIS GOVERNMENT IS PLUMMETING
    AIRSTRIKES =COLLATERAL DAMAGE=INNOCENT VICTIMS,WE HAVE NO RIGHT TO KILL INNOCENTS SO HUMANITARIAN AID IS THE ONLY WAY TO GO

    The whole question in biased – we should take part irrespective of usa

  9. Leon Wolfeson

    The Arabs are. They sent Islamists.

    That’s why we’re in this mess in the first place.

    You don’t think the funding and support of Qatar and Saudi played no factor?
    Or the Sunni-Shia tribalism of Iraq?

    why is the question so often phrased ‘what should the West do’: so rarely “what should the ME neighbours do”.
    The middle east neighbours have deep pockets, lots of military toys.

    Annoys me, on Radio 4 and the BBC: how rarely they get a Saudi or Qatari or etc ambassador on to ask questions.

    We live in a world where the power of the west is declining anyway, over the next 20 years.

    The new question in 20 years may be ‘what should China do’: but we know the answer already: they won’t intervene anywhere for anything unless it is 100% for their own gain.
