9/25 Vijay Prashad: A Ground Level View of the War on ISIS

September 25, 2014

Professor and writer Vijay Prashad explains the context for the rise of ISIS in Syria and Iraq, the myth of sectarian violence in the Middle East, the implosion of Libya and lessons for Syria, Saudi Arabia, Iran and Turkey, why Turkey has been soft on ISIS and why solutions can only be found in smart diplomacy.

Also John Crawford shot with barely any warning.

Dinesh d’Douza gets a infomercial for his movies on Fox News, the insane new ad Republicans are running to get women voters, Fox hosts wonder if Women fighter pilots mean “there are boobs on the ground” and your calls and IMs.

And keep the conversation going on our morning thread
