US Role in Syria : Counter-Terrorism or Regime Change?


Eric Draitser of StopImperialism.org appears on Sputnik Radio (Nov. 22, 2015) to provide his analysis of the US role in Syria after the Paris attacks and the UN Security Council draft resolution against terrorism and ISIS/ISIL. Draitser argues that the US would need to stop arming and supporting a variety of terrorist groups in pursuit of regime change in Syria, but that the likelihood of such a dramatic shift in US policy is low. He also notes that there may be disagreements in Washington as to the best course of action, but the consensus is still for regime change and the destruction of the Syrian state.
