Britain Will Help The US Destroy Isis – Cameron

Britain is committed to working with the US to destroy Isis, the “caliphate” set up by in Iraq and Syria, David Cameron has said.

David Cameron told US TV network NBC he wanted the UK to do more but said he needed to “take parliament with him”.

MPs voted against proposed military action in Syria two years ago.

Meanwhile, Mr Cameron will use a speech on Monday to warn young Britons tempted to join IS they will end up as little more than “cannon fodder”.
“If you are a boy, they will brainwash you, strap bombs to your body and blow you up. If you are a girl, they will enslave and abuse you,” he will say.

Speaking about the UK’s possible role in fighting the group, Mr Cameron told NBC: “I want Britain to do more. I’ll always have to take my parliament with me.

“We’re talking and discussing at the moment, including with the opposition parties in Britain, what more we can do. But be in no doubt, we’re committed to working with you to destroy the caliphate in both countries.”

Mr Cameron is expected to give a speech on Monday setting out the government’s future strategy to combat radicalisation and extremism.

He is expected to say: “British values are our strongest weapon in the battle against the twisted narrative of Islamist extremists.
“Wherever we are from, whatever our background, whatever our religion, there are things we share together.
“We are all British. This is the home we have built together. We can all feel part of this country – and we must all now come together and stand up for our values with confidence and pride.
“And as we do so we should together challenge the ludicrous conspiracy theories of the extremists.”

It follows a speech the prime minister made in June when he warned of the dangers posed by those who “quietly condone” IS militants’ extremist ideology and called on Muslims to do more within their own communities.
