Sensible suggestion. However, there are some obstacles.Belinda wrote:I believe that all parties including ISIS should have talks to come to an agreement about humanitarian relief corridors. ASAP
-Some of that humanitarian relief would come from ISIS, and all sides are unlikely to trust each other not to include weapons.
-Allowing civillians to live compartively normal lives in each other's areas is directly contrary to the war aims of all sides.
I think what's needed is a perception of parity in the ability of each side to provide humanitarian relief without an agreement. In other words, unless we can demontrate an ability to help people that matches that of ISIS, then they don't have an incentive to agree not to shoot the convoys. This may involve an agressive push to deliver relief without agreement, which is hard without troops on the ground. But not impossible. It may end up being a military problem after all.
Certainly it would require close cooperation with Turkey, which may have political implications.
