We Will Defeat Islamist Extremism – British Prime Minister David Cameron (Telegraph-UK)
As the murders on the streets of Paris reminded us so starkly, Islamic State (ISIL) is not some remote problem thousands of miles away; it is a direct threat to our security.
We will take whatever actions are necessary to keep our country safe. This is not a time to equivocate about allowing our police to shoot a terrorist to save the lives of innocent people.
We will tackle the poisonous ideology of Islamist extremism.
The bottom line of our National Security Strategy must always be the willingness and capability to use force where necessary.
Britain [should] join our international allies in going after ISIL at their headquarters in Syria, not just Iraq. We cannot leave the burden and risks of protecting our country to others.
