After Presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump debated sharp disagreements on U.S. policy towards the Syrian civil war in their debates, Middle East analyst Phyllis Bennis presents a series of talks at Massachusetts colleges and universities on “Ending the Many Wars in Syria”.
Among the questions she addresses: 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?
