Letter: Can bombing bring peace to Syria?
Comment Email Print

After prolonged silence on the issue of Isis, Cardinal Nichols appears to support the British Government's plan to authorise air strikes in Syria. The doctrine of proportionality in warfare leads him to condone this attack as part of some mythical peace process. What kind of peace process starts with an armed onslaught against the opposing side?

I think his remarks were unfortunate to say the least and possibly dangerously misleading. If this is the kind of morasl leadership the hierarchy provide we would be better listening to the balanced views of Jeremy Corbyn.
