We were engaged in a war with IS, we were supporting military operations on the ground with the RAF. Do I think we were right, yes. But then I think that its probably also right, if your the other side, to target the people giving the orders, rather than some kids attending a concert.

When we invaded Iraq, Saddam Hussain, was a direct target of US and UK bombing operations. It stands to reason, to target the enemy leaders.

We still aren't "at war". Iraq and Syria are both having civil wars. We're merely part of a task force providing support to one side.

We were at war in Iraq, albeit illegally. Clue being it was called, and still is called, the Iraq War.

Can't believe you seriously think the PM, who didn't make the decision on providing supporting for either of those conflicts is "a legitimate target". It's more ridiculous that you think she is a legitimate target in the UK!

 


Optimistic as ever

I'd say trying to kill a Prime Minister goes way above terrorism. That is an attempt to destabilise the country. That is justification to take serious action where the civil rights of a minority become secondary.


That's easy to say when you're not in that minority.

We don't do possession; we do defense and attack. Everything else is just wa**ing with a football.

Oh man. Using a quote from the 1700s to cover every occasion.
