Syria, Turkey, Russia, & the Political Landscape

Eric Draitser of appears on CPR Sunday (November 29, 2015) with security analyst Mark Sleboda and journalist/broadcaster Don DeBar. Eric, Mark and Don discuss the downing of the Russian jet by Turkey and the political fallout from that incident. They examine how the downing will impact Russia’s mission in Syria., what it means for Turkey, and how it impacts the region broadly. The last part of the show focuses on the terror attacks in Mali which Eric argues were a targeted assassination designed to send a message to China and Russia. All this and much more in this week’s show.
