The following rousing speech by Hilary Benn, the “shadow foreign secretary” in England, is truly outstanding. If you’re going to make the case to fight ISIS, this is definitely the place to start. Benn is a member of the British Labour Party, a left-wing party comparable to the Democrat Party (considered to be “center-left”). He’s a member of the “opposition,” meaning he doesn’t actually hold a cabinet position in the administration since his party does not control Parliament.
