PERSPECTIVES: A Short History and Hypothesis of the current Syrian Civil War

Sep 7, 2013

Louie talks with Dr. Chuck Boehmer, UTEP political science professor, about the ongoing problems besetting Syria over the last 43 years. They discuss military strategy from various countries involved in the crossfire. The U.S. Senate is currently (9/6/2013) discussing the probabilities for military airstrikes and intervention over the next few weeks.

FROM NPR NEWS: "Saying he will continue to "make the best case" in coming days for taking military action against the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad, President Obama has announced that he will speak to the American people Tuesday about why he's come to that conclusion.

Obama's statement came Friday at the start of a news conference he's holding in St. Petersburg, Russia, where the G-20 Summit of world leaders wrapped up Friday. He spoke for about 50 minutes."  Find more news under http://nprnews.org and stay tuned to KTEP for updates on the anticipated address to the nation.
