    So we're bombing oil fields where there's a high chance that most of the people working there are civilians, rather than anybody high up in the chain of command? Superb start!

    And oil fields can be repaired. At the end of the day bombing is going to do nothing more than disenfranchise, and radicalise those who we're meant to be helping.

    I don't think the Sirian public are working these fields to be honest.

    Flippant statement, but true. I don't have to like it , nor do you, but its true.

    The MOD budget is 50bn. Sounds a lot doesn't it. The UK income tax payer contributed 550bn in FY12/13.

    Bombing has a lot of issues. Finance is the least of my worries.

    The most financially wise position is to scrap the military altogether. Only having a dad's army type defence system should anyone actually try to invade like Vikings or something.

    I'm glad we are bombing them. If its kills a few thousand terrorists , excellent. If it maintains and creates jobs in the north east, excellent. Boosts economy, excellent. Some innocents die, horrendous and accidental, but IS is at fault for that, not the retaliation force.

    If nutters weren't killing people, none of this would be happening. A core point lots forget.

    And I'm yet to hear a viable alternative. Diane Abbot said on my TV to negotiate a cease fire. Rightyo then love.

    Bomb them. Ground troop them. Cut off all oil. Discard any partners or sympathisers such as Turkey, Saudi etc.

    And if another springs up, kill them as well. Paedophiles, kill them. Murderers , kill them. Terrorists, kill them. Kill any human who does not behave in the vastly held earth wide boundaries of decency. There's 7 billion of us man. It's 2015. Time to move on from pixies and gods and shite.

    Kill them all!

    They are humans with a brain. Given that, if they think of everything and the end result is "I want to walk round a beach shooting people in the name of a gadgee in a book who lives in the sky" kill them.

    And all we took out were a few things that the Americans, Russians, French, and every other fucker deemed not worth bombing

    Yes they are humans with a brain. Himans who can be changed depending on what's happening in their surroundings and the options they're shown.

    Incorrect. Do you truely believe a person can walk into a mosque or bunker and say right guys, here's where you're going wrong...total tosh. Equivalent to the social services helping and trying to 'fix' paedos in my opinion. Some brains are wrong marra. Accept it. No different to rabid dogs or a lion. Youre pushing your intelligence and common sense onto others.

    Maybe not the Taliban but as Ulster is still part of the U.K. I'd say we did defeat the IRA.

    No mate from what I've heard and read on here some people are 'born wrong' so the bombing should carry on forever and even though every bombing campaign we've been involved in in the last 20+ years has done nothing more than create the problems we have now, and even though in October Cameron said that bombing Syria would lead to more terrorism and extremism, now it's vital that we, er, bomb Syria.

    Supporting working, sure. i.e. a handful of people who know something about oil production to oversee. And a load of soldiers to enforce.

    But they can't simply rustle up a few thousand skilled oil technicians overnight.

    Some people are thick enough to believe this as anything to do with the farce that is party politics, hard to believe isn't it.

    You obviously don't understand the concept of deterrence.
