Syria: A Turning Point?
Thursday, April 28
12:00 - 2:00 PM
Fradkin, Abdulhamid, Ghadar, Smith
More than a month after protests erupted in the small southern city of Deraa, the Syrian Revolution is gathering steam. Friday after Friday, the opposition movement has taken to the streets of every major Syrian city to demonstrate against one of the more ruthless regimes in the Middle East. A long-time sponsor of terror and ally of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Damascus facilitated the flow of foreign fighters into Iraq to attack U.S. troops and Iraqi allies, while it also targeted U.S. allies in Lebanon, Israel, and the Palestinian territories. Presumably, the fall of the Assad regime would constitute a net gain for American interests in the Middle East.
