Future Left Podcast Ep. 64: Discussing Syria & The Left With Danny Stoker
This week we're discussing the United States' latest military adventure: a brief intervention into the civil war in Syria. We sat down with Danny Stoker, one of the hosts of the Middle East-focused podcast Dardasha Weekly, to discuss the past, present, and future of the crisis and Syria. In particular, we focus on some of the errors and tensions that surround the discourse on the conflict. For example, if we oppose both the brutality of the Assad regime as well as US imperialism around the world, what's the proper footing for the left?
