More symbolic bombing of some Syrian infrastructure, while making a wide berth around Al Nusra et al, aka the "good" ISIS? And of course Turkey must not be upset, so stay away from the Jihadi camps inside the self-declared Turkish air zone in Syria? Spare us, Mr. Cameron.

In this case I feel the only practical factor/benefit is to show moral support to France. To show we are in this together.

As WilliB suggests above, much of the recent bombing is just destroying Syrian infrastructure. The Daesh group mostly move around in tunnels below the bombing, like so many others who have learned the lessons of Vietnam, etc. Britain has the Brimstone missile which can be used against moving surface targets, so practice with that could be one excuse, I suppose.

Sorry to say this, but I hope he gets voted down.

"Sorry to say this, but I hope he gets voted down."

As the article pointed out, he lost the vote on bombing Assad. He's not a man with a good track record of making sensible foreign policy decisions. The cannibals on his backbenches may be getting a bit peckish and decide to knife him in the back after signaling they'd vote the other way. Remember Major's 'bastards'?

Jimizo, he lost the vote, yes, but that was in 2013 as the article pointed out. This new vote is next week, as the article points out..

Yes, I know. I was agreeing with your very good post and pointing out that his half-baked, written-on-the-back-of-a-ciggie-packet foreign policy ideas have been defeated in the Commons before.

When is China going to join the coalition against IS?

Good. Like the rodents they are. Syria is destroyed anyway. It looks like the aftermath of Hiroshima or Nagasaki.

It seems like a meeting of sandalista's on here. Guys, even Dear Leader Kommrade Korbyn's cabinet are threatening to resign en-masse if he tells them to vote against the air-strikes.

British bombs are coming to MadBeards in Syria. It's about time.

Labour cabinet members are supporting it? I feel better already. Of course Labour cabinet members always make the right decision regarding this part of the world. Who's threatening to resign? People like Hilary Benn who was Blair's lapdog when he made the inspired decision to invade Iraq?

The Labour Party has been infested with rodents for well over a decade.

It's not Syria that's the problem: it's the home-grown beardies. They'll be bombing downtown Londonistan shortly enough.

Put yourself or family on frontline then Cameron you fat pillock.

Jimizio,

Nah the Labour party were W Bush's biatch when it came to making the current mess in the ME. It's about time they atoned for destroying Iraq against the will of the British people.

Who's threatening to resign?

About all of them as far as I can see. Every day is a nail in the coffin of the radical shadow government of Kommrade Korbyn. It's a shame he can't hang on a bit longer as leader, keep the left out there in opposition where they belong.

I think other countries should be joining this coalition against IS.

I think other countries should start to question the foundation of radical islam and the source of it's existence. I think it is also time to start hitting radical islam where it hurts most; Riyadh, Mecca, Medina.

While their @it. Drop Turkey too. Last but not least, restrict / block (entirely) the flow of islamic refugees into the US by obama.

Drop books instead of bombs. These turkeys took out the strong men who unfortunately provided work for the multitude of illiterate unemployed males in the regions that are affected. Education and the provision of employment opportunities is the only way to beat extremism. Annihilating families and destroying infrastructure will only create more angry young men wanting revenge.
