Britain's Cameron to Launch ISIS Plan: 10,000 Elite Troops, Bolstered Military

A day after President Obama called ISIS "a bunch of killers with good social media," British Prime Minister David Cameron on Monday will announce the dedication of 10,000 troops in a 10-year plan to fight the Islamic State.

Cameron will propose that two new 5,000-strong strike forces with be formed to fight ISIS and 12billion pounds will be put aside as fears grow of a 10-year campaign, The Mirror reports.

“When the threats to our country are growing," new military weaponry is "vital," said Cameron.
“We cannot choose between conventional defenses against state-based threats and the need to counter threats that do not recognize national borders.

“Today we face both and we must respond to both.”

With an increase in the defense equipment budget – a  12 billion pounds increase to 178 billion pounds over the next decade – it will pay for nine Boeing P8 maritime patrol aircrafts, equipped torpedoes, an updated surveillance kit, and two new squadrons of Typhoon fighter jets, Mirror reports.

“Our priorities are to deter state-based threats, tackle terrorism, remain a world leader in cyber security and ensure we have the capability to respond rapidly to crises as they emerge," Cameron said.

President Barack Obama is getting hammered for his inaction in the fight against ISIS. In a speech on Sunday, the president called ISIS a "bunch of killers with good social media."

His comments drew sharp criticism Monday morning from MSNBC's Joe Scarborough.

"I don't know where to begin," Scarborough said. "Democrats don't know where to begin. Foreign policy experts don't know where to begin. [Secretary of State] John Kerry said the same thing. It's much to do about nothing."

Meanwhile, Cameron is set to announce a comprehensive strategy for airstrikes on ISIS in Syria on Thursday.

“We can’t sit back and allow ISIL to use Raqqa as a base and plan attacks as they did on Paris,” a source said, according to the Mirror.

The two 5,000-troop units will be the Britain's fastest-ever ground force to launch lightening attacks on fast-moving enemies.

In an attempt to drive back terrorists, the Mirror adds that Britain's main goal is to move fast and self-sustain air cover for weeks.
