The Potential Impact Of American Intervention In Syria

The Potential Impact Of American Intervention In Syria

We explore the Syrian perspective on a potential air strike and examine the long-running conflict between opposition forces and the ruling regime.

The Obama administration is making a case to Congress this week for punitive airstrikes on Syria. Much of the conversation in Washington centers on American interests in the region and on whether an alleged chemical attack by the Syrian government necessitates a global response. We get a perspective from a Washington-based Syrian activist and scholar and examine the long-running conflict between opposition forces and the ruling regime.
