A BEHEADING IS INHUMAN - SO IS BOMBING A CHILD.

Do we really think that we can solve this militarily, that Cameron returning from holiday will turn the tide and that MI5, MI6 and the SAS will provide a solution. There is a surfeit of blood and might talk. A bomb for a bomb and a knife for a knife dooms us all. Beheading an innocent and defenceless man in cold blood is inhuman, however an allied bomb eviscerating a child is too. Politicians and religious leaders are operating reactively and superficially. Original thinking and long term strategic planning are needed. The world is in desperate need of a new approach to the equitable distribution of resources. We are paying a terrible price for our greed.
