Here's why Cameron wants to bomb Syria

British Prime Minister David Cameron is present his case to the House of Commons for British to extend air strikes against ISIS into Syria. A vote on the airstrikes will be held next week.

Here are the main points Cameron is making:

  • Seven of the terrorist plots linked to ISIS were stopped by security forces in the last year
  • Britain’s closest allies are the US and France. They want the UK to help.
  • Britain shouldn’t let other countries act on its behalf.
  • British Brimstone missiles are more accurate than US weapons.
