In a fine speech, Phyllis Bennis argues that several wars are now being fought in Syria. There is no military solution to the disaster--so let's try diplomacy instead.

This week Bennis refutes several American myths about Syria ... shows why imposing a "no-fly zone" is in fact going to war ... explores the staggering financial cost of the U.S. involvement ... and proposes four U.S. actions that would do far more good than war.

With an afterword by KD and some music by Midnight Oil.
Bennis Spoke at Emanuel College, Boston, on October 13, 2016. Many thanks to Dave Goodman, of I.B.I.S. Radio (, for the original recording (which is available on r4a). I have snipped out a few stumbles and pauses; the talk is otherwise uncut.
