Ending the Many Wars in Syria
October 11, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - October 14, 2016 @ 1:00 pm
Listen to an audio recording of Phyllis Bennis’ talk at Emmanuel College on October 13, 2016. Thanks to David Goodman of I.B.I.S. Radio
Talks by Phyllis Bennis:
Is the war in Syria a civil war? Is it a proxy war between the US and Russia ? Is it also a proxy war between Saudi Arabia, Iran, and Turkey? Can ISIS be reined in? Should Assad go? Or stay? Should the US “do more”? Or is it already doing too much by arming and training rebel groups? What will be the likely outcome of the current cease fire negotiations?
How can such a complex set of wars be settled by diplomacy? What solutions should the US peace movement support?
