American ambassador to Canada David Cohen, pictured on Feb. 24, 2022, leaving the Ukrainian embassy in Ottawa after a meeting with other G7 ambassadors.

Widespread destruction in residential neighbourhoods near Attan, April 21, 2015. The war in Syria and Iraq has left a trail of devastation. A massive reconstruction effort, on the scale of the post-1945 Marshall Plan in Western Europe, awaits. If the conflict in Syria were to end today, the World Bank estimates that U.S. $170-billion would be needed to rebuild the country. By comparison, since 2014, the U.S. has spent roughly U.S. $7-billion on its war with ISIS. Photograph courtesy of Ibrahem Qasim
