Subject: Only a political solution can help contain ISIL

The Editor
National Post

Copy to: Mr. Andrew Coyne, Comment editor, National Post: You miss the real picture when you say: "Pulling out of the ISIL mission, likewise, strikes me as the triumph of ideology over reason." Canada's bombing mission against ISIL has failed to stop the extremists from ransacking Mosul, Ramadi and other parts of Iraq and Syria. Only a well-armed ground force can do the job.

Only a political solution can help contain ISIL

Re "Liberals step forward ambitiously," by Andrew Coyne and "Amid the bloodshed, signs of hope," by Kelly McParland, Oct. 29.

Andrew Coyne might have missed the real picture when he says: "Pulling out of the ISIL mission, likewise, strikes me as the triumph of ideology over reason." He seems not to realize that Canada's bombing mission in Iraq has failed to stop ISIL from overruning Mosul, Ramadi and other parts of Iraq and Syria.

In an earlier letter published in National Post ("Political solution needed," July 11, 2015), I wrote: "If Canada bombs the Assad regime, it will end up helping ISIS. If it bombs ISIL, it will end up helping the Assad regime. All Canada and the United States can -- and should -- do is to help the moderates on both sides with financial aid and training, and bring about a political solution. Outside military intervention will only add to the conflict ." The peace talks in Vienna to end the civil war in Syria are truly a ray of hope to bring an end to the bloody conflict in the region.

Kelly McParland is right when he says: "Canada's new Liberal government has pledged to pull our few fighter jets from the anti-ISIl coalition, reducing our involvement in the region to huanitarian activites." This is the way to go. Only by bringing together all factions, brutal ISIL can be contained. Canada can play a far more effective role by returning to its traditional peacekeeping role once all sides agree to ceasefire.
