A recent biography of British Prime Minister David Cameron revealed that the United Kingdom's top soldier complained that discussing Syria with Cameron and his government in 2012 was rather like talking to children.However, the attack in Syria was the first time it has deployed them in a country with which, and in which, the U.K. was not at war.Cameron said the strikes were designed to foil terror attacks planned by the two men in the U.K. He insisted the action did not mark wider British involvement in coalition airstrikes against ISIS targets in Syria, a step that would require parliamentary approval. Cameron has been keen to expand British airstrikes to Syria for some time.In a move to break the stalemate, and amid what is clearly a buildup of Russian troops in Syria, Cameron's big idea is centered on the U.K.'s extending its military strikes against the "controlling brains" of ISIS, alongside a diplomatic push with Iran and Russia that would see Assad remain in power for a transitional period of six months while some form of national government can be formed to take power.Both are deeply suspicious that the West could use military action against ISIS as cover for removing Assad.
