The war drums are thundering from Paris to Moscow to the halls of Congress, as calls to “destroy ISIS” reverberate around the globe. As the militaries of numerous countries set their sites on Syrian bombing targets, however, it is still not clear who is fighting whom, nor even why.
To help us find our way through this confusing morass, we are pleased to be joined by journalist Reese Erlich, who has made numerous reporting trips to the region. He has just recently been visiting Jordan and Iraqi Kurdistan. Reese is the author of numerous books about US foreign policy and its effects. His most recent book, “Inside Syria“, examines the political puzzle palace that is Syria. He also wrote “Conversations with Terrorists” in which he interviewed Syrian President Bashar al Assad.
