Friday Links

Happy Friday! I’ve had a week of feeling a bit down, so three links this week!

Mark Steele on bombing Syria. When I worked in Social Services, a social worker told me that the difference between parents of children in care and other people was simply that they would do exactly the same thing and expect a different result because they wanted it to be different. As if wanting something enough would change the entire action from something damaging to something good. And the West is doing that, doubling down on the stuff that didn’t do good the first time and won’t if we do it now…

A silent crisis.

You can’t win a war if you don’t know what peace looks like. Giles Fraser on bombing Syria.
