What Is The Situation?

In light of the recent and horrific attacks in Paris, the British Government voted last night to begin carrying out airstrikes in Syria against the group that calls itself ISIS. The first airstrikes took place last night, only shortly after the vote. Many YouTube personalities have reacted to the vote (mostly negatively) and we have provided a roundup of these opinions for you, so that you can make your own mind up.




YouTubers often discuss serious global topics, (because sadly we live in a serious world) and we feel it’s our duty to bring you all the news that YouTubers feel is important. Here is a roundup of some of the views expressed:  


Anastasia (aka Floral Princess) Opposes Violence  


  Helen Anderson Fears How The Action Will Change Attitudes Towards The UK


  Lewis Paker Viewed The Issue As Grey


He Also Disagreed With Over-Politicising The Issue


Evan Edinger Kept Things Simple


As Did Emma Blackery



Myles Dyer Made His View Very Clear  


Myles Has Previously Explained His Position On The Matter

Myles Dyer argues that the greatest problem with the plan to bomb Syria is the lack of a clear plan. He also fears the start of ‘mission creep ‘ – a phenomenon where military action extends beyond it’s original goal (he cites Iraq war and the 2011 Syria campaign as an example).
