Western Daily Press editor Ian Mean comments on today's news that David Cameron has said that Islamic extremists pose a threat to Britain
Writing in the Sunday Telegraph today, Prime Minister David Cameron has finally realised what the British public wants to hear – tough words about the murdering members of the Islamic State.
He warns that Britain will have to use its “military prowess” to help defeat “this exceptionally dangerous” movement or or else terrorists with “murderous intent” will target people in Britain.
At the same time in the Observer today, the Church of England has attacked David Cameron’s Middle East policy saying that the government’s approach is incoherent, ill-thought pout and determined by “the loudest media voice at any particular time”.
I agree with that - what do you think?
The last thing we want to do is to get embroiled in a boots on the ground fight, but can we now really abandon the people of Iraq?
Tough words are fine but coherent action with our allies is louder than words.
