Responding to a previous post, one Vox Political commenter said they were less scared of ISIS than they were of David Cameron.
It’s a good point. The Conservative Government has certainly killed more UK citizens than Islamic State.
Then, as the commenter said, David Cameron turns up on TV, wearing his ‘stern’ face, and tells us targeting so-called ‘Jihadi John’ was “the right thing to do”.
Why was it right for US forces to attack and kill a British subject?
So Cameron can add him to the list of UK citizens killed on his watch?
US forces have carried out a drone strike in Syria against the Islamic State militant known as “Jihadi John”.
A US military source said there was a “high degree of certainty” he had been killed in Thursday’s attack in Raqqa.
Mohammed Emwazi, a Kuwaiti-born British militant, appeared in videos of the beheadings of Western hostages.
UK PM David Cameron said although it was not yet certain whether the strike had been successful, targeting Emwazi was “the right thing to do”.
