France targeted a command post and a terrorist training camp, dropping 20 bombs on ISIS in Syria which ISIS claims Raqqa as the capital of its so-called caliphate. The first target included a command post, jihadist recruiting center and a weapons storage base. It was reported 24 bombs were dropped and 30 explosions overnight into Monday. Mostly the suburbs were hit, but in the city, the stadium and the museum were also struck, ISIS uses the museum and the stadium as jails. Its headquarters are also in the stadium. Do you think France should continue the bombing?

I see no reason why France or any other country should stop the bombing. The more that these people know that their mediaeval antics wont be tolerated the better!

I fully agree as we need to rid our world of these types of people and if bombing is the way to do it then so be it.

@Marcyaz I do think it needs to be done with a united and coordinated strategy overseen by nato or the UN. If random countries decided tot target random targets then things would get messy!

@destry There is usually some form of unity between the different nations.

Do you think that Europe should do nothing and wait for more terrorist attacks?

@Marcyaz They had to start before, ISIS has already killed so many innocent people.

@LadyDuck Yes they have killed so many and won't stop that is why we need to destroy them quickly as possible.

The bombings must keep on but it is pointless to bomb only military stations like until now. I just read today that the coalition bombed the oil pipeline which should have been the main target all along because no money equals no payment for the recruits which leaves a weaker organisation.

yes the bombings should keep on and on and bombing military stations is a good thing. I don't know if the pipeline should have been the main target.

@Marcyaz The pipeline was their main income generator in the end it is not only about religion because many of the terrorist change allegiance depending on the payment from a certain faction which makes ISIS a profitable target to join. Just to clarify I am not saying the bombing on military stations must stop I just say the priorities must be a bit different.

I agree they should destroy as much and as many of the terrorists places as they know about.

@Susan2015 Yes and I think even Russia is getting in on this since the attack on France.

As long as it is targeted correctly that should continue but is there such a thing as a perfect target?

They are justified in bombing Syrian strongholds.
