Elijah Magnier returns to discuss the announcement of withdrawal from Syria, Turkish invasion, Kurdish dilemma and Russia’s new rules of engagement with Israel and Syria
Elijah Magnier returns to the show. He is currently in Beirut enroute to Damascus. We discuss Trump’s announcement of a rapid withdrawal from Syria, the prospect of a Turkish invasion of Kurdish and US-occupied areas in Syria, and the situation that withdrawal from Syria creates for the Kurds. Even if Trump reneges on his order, they are still confronted with a crisis of confidence about long term American occupation and their own security and interests. We also discuss Russia’s consequential changes to the rules of engagement with Israel and Syria, and a possible Middle East summit.
We talk with Elijah Magnier, chief international war correspondent for Al Rai media, reporting from Baghdad on current situation in Iraq and Syria.
Elijah has covered wars in Lebanon, the Balkans, Iraq, Sudan, Libya, and Syria. Beyond reporting on wars from the ground, Mr. Magnier also offers expert analysis on terrorism and terrorist organizations. He spoke to us from Baghdad.
