A day after President Obama told the assembled press corps and the world, “We don’t have a strategy yet” on dealing with ISIS, U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron stepped up, raising his country’s threat level to severe, saying that “This threat cannot be solved simply by dealing with the perceived grievances over Western foreign policy” and adding, “We cannot appease this ideology. We have to confront it at home and abroad.”
Cameron has said he’ll address Parliament Monday regarding the threat level. That sort of talk won the respect of actor Ken Wahl, who saluted Cameron for confronting the threat of ISIS head on.
No need to get testy. He may be golfing today, but the president is sure to get back to those “intensive discussions” tomorrow.
