President Trump’s recent announcement that his administration will create safe zones in Syria should be welcome by all who seek to protect civilians and take steps to end that terrible conflict, which has claimed hundreds of thousands of lives and displaced millions.

It is also a model that should be considered for, and tailored to, Iraq.
