"The coalition, alongside other parties to the conflict, have shown little concern for the lives of civilians and even less interest in ending their pointless war that has created the world’s worst humanitarian crisis. Today should have been the day that the Senate moved to end US involvement in this catastrophe. But it is clear from today’s debate that the tide is turning.
