Jeremy Clarkson wants Britain to leave ISIS alone, ‘they’ll get bored eventually’


Jeremy Clarkson thinks the world should let ISIS carry on without retaliation.

In fact the former Top Gear presenter believes eventually the terrorists, who killed 130 people in Paris on November 13, will become ‘bored with their crackpot ideas’.

Writing in his column in The Sun, Clarkson states: “Nobody tried to stop Stalin, or Pol Pot or Idi Amin.

“But they’re all gone now because, eventually, people became bored with their crackpot ideas and moved on.”

Hang on, so the argument is; Stalin wasn’t such a bad guy? ISIS will get bored, will they? Is that after genocide or before? Like Hitler did.

Clarkson continued to defend his point saying if Britain drops bombs in countries with a strong ISIS presence, jihadists will “become angry and send people over here to blow us up in shopping centres”.

“This will make us angry so we’ll drop more bombs, which will cause them to send more people over to Europe to blow up, and so on and so on.

“Dropping bombs from planes allows First World leaders to say they’re in the fight, but it will solve nothing. It never has and it never will.

“If they really want to make a difference they have to send in ground troops and they won’t do that, not after what happened last time.

“To make matters worse, our leaders don’t seem to understand what [ISIS] is or what it wants or even what it’s called.

“They tell us it doesn’t follow the teachings of Islam, but it does, actually. In the same way that those mad, shouty churches in America follow the principals of Christianity.”

If his column was purely to court controversy, he’s succeeded.

What we can’t understand is that he’ll punch his producer in the face over a steak, but is a pacifist when it comes to ISIS.
