Summary
With the president calling for U.S intervention and Congress deliberating on America's role in the crisis, Syria is everywhere in the news. In this edition of Moyers & Company, Phil Donahue sits in for Bill to speak with NPR's Middle East correspondent Deborah Amos and historian and Vietnam veteran Andrew Bacevich about the possible repercussions of a new round of actions in the Middle East. Bacevich articulates the key questions-Is a military response justified? And if we take action, where does it stop?-while Amos examines the human toll of the civil war and the impact millions of refugees will have on the region. Events are unfolding quickly, making the need for a full discussion of our motives and U.S. foreign policy-not just in regard to Syria, but in the entire Middle East-all the more urgent.
