Under Trump, the US has hit Mosul, Iraq with airstrikes, illegally bombed Syria, escalated US military action in Somalia, and dropped the horribly-named “Mother of All Bombs” in Afghanistan. The list goes on. We know from our work in war zones around the world that military intervention only prolongs violence. And it increases threats against women and families, like mass displacement, humanitarian disaster, wartime rape and more.
