I am not qualified to speak on this but I thought Hughes or someone would have an interesting view. We hear things in the media every day, just now another report. What would be the response to ISIS if you were in no10?

Neither am I but you would know that :) Even the governments are making it up as they go along. I think they understand action more than words.

I dont want to make light of this, but the present effort needs to be sustained and stepped up.

THEY ARE DOING ANOTHER 30-40 AIRSTRIKES THIS WEEK I HEARD. WITH WHAT THEY HAVE DUMPED IN BOMBS YOU WOULD THINK YOU WOULD WIPE OUT AN ARMY 10 TIMES THEIR SIZE. THINK OF HOW LONG THE IRAQ INVASION TOOK :/

The best minds of international and military strategy are pondering this question. I for one am glad they are.

They're the first terror group that gives the whole world the shivers. From what Iv seen in my short life anyhow. Is them being treated like weeds by allied forces the solution? How deep run the roots of all this stuff?

IS there a solution or does this movement just have to burn itself out?

It may well have to Brad. It seems that efforts to squelch the movement are fuelling ISIS. This has to be one of the most pressing current challenges.

It's so hard to not give in to provocation. I think the government has done well though not giving ransoms. They would take the money and bomb you with it.

Thanks for your responses everyone. It's not agreement but its the exchange that matters.

I don't mind saying that I'm at a loss. I think military action is most a waste of time but in this case you can't stand by idly.

Egypt says it has bombed Islamic State targets in Libya, hours after the militants released video of apparent beheadings of 21 Egyptian Christians.

And some people still think that there is any reasonable way of dealing with this rabble.

If the best minds in IT come together on this they could really hurt them because a lot of their recruiting is all done online. It's a way for non violent struggle in a modern way and I feel we need that. Blood just calls for more blood :(

I feel the same way. It seems that the actions are there to punish as well as provoke future actions. Messing up their sites seems like a very smart way froward, but it's not going to solve the whole problem.

No, he said that wih how MI5 used to pursue him he felt like a dead man walking. That was years ago. But i would not be surprised if he's worried today.

They've possibly linked now with Boko Haram. That doesn't seem like the sort of solution anybody is looking for.

There were those in WWII that took the passive stance and said Evil will burn itself out Eventually but today we can be glad that they lost the argument. The solution is to fight ISIS. Fight and defeat them in every tactical way; by airstrikes, by intelligence and by training and equipping troops. By all reports 1000 or more of their troops are laid low every month which must make a significant impact already.

I don't have any better solution than what is being proposed, frankly. Yes they are going to hate us and attempt to retaliate, but they hate us and are encouraging attacks already!?

They removed Gaddafi, they removed Hussain, and is Libya or Iraq any better of? What they should be thinking in Westminster is not where to bomb and how much but what r they going t do AFTER the bombing.

Their no2 man was just killed in a drone attack. I think the allied effort is working, it's slow yes but surely the way out is not to let this go on unchallenged. thats why Hillary Clinton will be a possibly good president because she is strong on defence as well as diplomacy.

Iraqi forces are now driving them back. This could be the window of opportunity everyone has been looking for because the world is mad and no longer passive. I hope so anyway.
