In Washington (and among its European allies) the foreign policy playbook contains only one play: military escalation. If ISIS emerged as a result of the US attack on Iraq, the only solution is more attacks. More attacks bring more blowback. Does it make sense to continue doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results?

Brussels: No Brexit delay past April 12 if Withdrawal Agreement not approved
European Union Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said that there would be no further extensions to Brexit if the House of Commons fails to pass the Withdrawal Agreement by April 12, while speaking in Brussels on Wednesday.
He told MEPs that “April 12 is the final date for possible approval … no short-term extension will be possible.”
“I believe a no-deal on the 12th of April at midnight has become a scenario which looks more and more likely. It is not what I want, but it is an outcome for which I have made sure the EU is ready,” he said.
He added that Member States and the European Union will work together until the last minute to avoid a no-deal scenario, because “the only ones that would benefit from a no-deal are those that are against a world order based on rules. The only ones who will be strengthened will be the populists and the nationalists.”

They chanted slogans, demanding amendments to Article 7bis of the Belgium constitution, which would bind the country's government to commitments made under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.
The march was organised by the student group 'Youth For Climate.' ✞ God bless ✞
