I spoke with both BBC WM and BBC Coventry on Wednesday about proposals to confront the Islamic State, including the British Government’s latest initiative to get Parliamentary approval of airstrikes inside Syria.

The discussions include consideration of alternatives to American and British “boots on the ground” and discussion of whether US President Barack Obama has been indecisive in his response to the crises.
