Prime Minister David Cameron vowed to use "all the assets we have" to hunt down and punish those behind the "senseless" act and insisted it would only reinforce the UK's determination to destroy IS.
Why should it have to fall to the USA to fix things constantly?
When we jump in, we're yelled at/about by the rest of the world, saying how we're ''war hungry'' and ''want to be world police''. When we don't jump in, people complain cuz we didn't.
Let Britain take a turn.
USA isn't the only country in the world being affected by ISIS.

Probably just one of those press dumps by the propaganda boys. Give folks something to chew on here there and abroad.
Saving these hostages may be a waste of time considering they would simply get more. All they really need is a few heads to cut off here and there to make a splash.
