The guest for our November call is Phyllis Bennis, who focuses on Syria, the refugee crisis, and the recent terror attacks. The discussion covers Paris, Beirut, and other locations. The refugee crisis is covered in the context of the escalating war and backlash from this past week's event -- some background on just how dire the refugee situation is, the eight separate but overlapping wars currently being fought in Syria, and the role of the US in the crisis. Plus, she covers what a US policy should look like, what new diplomatic initiatives are underway, and what we can be doing.
