Trump’s Bombing of Syria: “Mission Accomplished?” or “A Tale Told by an Idiot, Full of Sound and Fury, Signifying Nothing?” Tuesday, April 24, 2018. KGNU, Boulder, Colorado. 88.5 FM; 1390 AM. 6 pm Mountain Time. Hemispheres: Middle East Dialogues.

Hear Ibrahim Kazerooni and Rob Prince discuss the motivation and results of the recent U.S.-U.K.- French missile attack on Syria. 103 missiles launched from the Eastern Mediterranean, Red Sea and Persian Gulf on Syria targets. What is known about the alleged chemical attack at Douma, Syria? What were the results of the attack in terms of changing the balance of power in the Syria conflict?

What seems to have been the thinking – if there was any – behind this show of force reminiscent of the famous Shakespeare quote that it was “a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury signifying nothing.”
