Will King of Jordan lead airstrikes on Islamic State HIMSELF?
The monarch (left in military outfit) may personally take part in bombing raids on extremist strongholds on Thursday, according to reports in Arabic-language newspapers.
It comes after the former general (centre in the right hand picture) told members of Congress that he was ready to exact a blistering revenge against the ISIS terror army for the brutal execution of military pilot Moaz al-Kassasbeh - and he quoted a Clint Eastwood movie character (inset) to make his point. Reports have now emerged suggesting the king, a trained pilot, could take part in planned airstrikes on ISIS targets today.
