The Sun on Sunday’s article on British airstrikes in Syria


The Sun on Sunday (September 6, 2015)

Headline reads: “Pull the Trigger”

This article on support for British military action in Syria cites a poll conducted by the Sun that has a leading question. The question for the poll is “would you support or oppose Britain playing a greater military role in bringing an end to the war in Syria?”. The results of this poll thus are based on the notion that this greater British military role would subsequently bring peace to Syria, a false conflation. There is nothing to suggest that a larger British military role in Syria would result in making Syria safe.
