Not really a fan of Andrew Neil but his attack on IS last night was impressive.
Whatever it costs, whatever protocols are infringed, we need to unite with Russia, Iran, everybody, to send in troops and destroy IS now. i don't think we have seen anything yet to compare with what they will do
I've been saying for years that the west should have backed Russia in sorting out the Mujahadeen in Afghanistan back in the 80s, but no - what did we do? We armed the Mujahadeen against Russia, because of course the Soviets were the enemy weren't they? Duh! Talk about an own goal - the Mujahadeen turned into Al Qaeda using the arms we'd supplied.
