Michael Jansen: Daesh’s trail of destruction
The war against Daesh is coming to an end in Syria and Iraq. In both countries national armies bolstered by competing external forces have turned the tide against Daesh. The tide turned because the cult had no allies due to its brutal and cruel behaviour towards civilians who came under its rule in cities, towns, villages and countryside. Daesh no longer controls any major cities in either country and is being squeezed by the
 
 
Nash Riggins: Time someone took the helm and led by example
This has been a tough year for America. Over the last ten months, we’ve been forced to contend with a merciless wave of mass shootings, natural disasters, riots and political ineptitude. Public institutions are being dismantled, rights are being stripped from ordinary citizens and hatred is being catapulted into the mainstream. This country is crying out for strong, level-headed leadership. We need somebody – literally anybody
   
James Moore: Hardline Brexiteers are the UK’S NRA
In a sensible world, Leave Means Leave (“the campaign for a clean Brexit”) could be safely be dismissed as a bunch of kooks and ignored as a result.

In the Western world, where mortality from lethal germs has mostly receded into the background, the burden of infectious disease can seem like someone else’s problem. But the struggle between humanity and infectious disease is never someone else’s problem – certainly not in
   
John Rentoul: The funny world of politics
Normally, I would agree that speculation about the next leader of a party is fairly pointless, although that has never stopped me. But Theresa May could go at any moment and we are in the odd position of knowing that she is most likely to be replaced before the next election, and so the identity of her successor is of pressing interest. The last time we were in this position, Tony Blair had announced he would be standing down,
 
 
K Ramakrishnan and Jennifer Lee: There’s a bamboo ceiling in Silicon Valley
Google, Microsoft, Adobe and Blackberry are leading technology companies with something notable in common: They are all run by Asian-American CEOs. The visibility of Asian-American leaders in tech companies has not gone unnoticed. Former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon infamously complained that “two-thirds or three-quarters of the CEOs in Silicon Valley are from South Asia or Asia.” Perception is far from reality,
