I agree with Corbyn on many aspects. Firstly by killing terrorists outright it's more likely to make them martyrs, thus meaning more violence. With arrest and trial comes humiliation of their cause and a far less escalation of violence. Did the death of Bin Laden stop anything? Of course it didn't, at the end of the day his death solved no problems.

Furthermore, we in the west like to pretend we're civilised, they're supposed to be the uncivilised murderous ones, not us, so we really shouldn't be sinking to their level!

A bit of a diversion here but I thought of this.
Hearing the argument between Corbyn and the general, defending us having nuclear weapons as deterrents, Iraq was 'based' on there being WMDs.
We all know what a pile of lies that was, but let's say Iraq did have them.
The general kept reiterating 'they are a deterrent, they deter, in that respect they are working for us every minute of every day'.
So if indeed there were WMDs in Iraq why would we be worried?
They are a deterrent, they deter, in that respect they are working for us every minute of every day'.
Really, general?
I take it the general has no faith in them whatsoever then.
But Iraq is a rogue state, they don't care.
So they would shoot them regardless, and we still aren't protected.
All we would be doing is attacking back.
And dealing with the sweep up after wards. As would they.
We have these weapons and we have no idea how to deal with either having them or others having them.
Then we hear of the modern day threats we face if indeed that ramps up the justification for having them.
France has nuclear weapons, as did we on July 7th.
As does America.
