“The Caesar Act – Washington Pours on More Sanctions Against Syria; Shifting Tides of War from Syria To Libya.”KGNU 1390 AM, 88.5 FM – Hemispheres, Middle East Dialogues with Ibrahim Kazerooni and Rob Prince. Tuesday, June 23, 2020. 6-7 pm Mountain Time. Hosted by Jim Nelson.

The 9th round of sanctions against Syria since 2011 called “The Caesar Act’ based on a bogus report of Syrian government atrocities. These sanctions target all trade, financial relations with the Syrian government, especially targeting Lebanon, Iraq.

We’ll look at the impact – or lack thereof – of the Caesar Act on the Damascus’ government’s efforts to liberate the rest of Syria from mercenary, Turkish and U.S. military occupation.

At the same time Turkey is transferring its Islamic mercenaries from Syria’s Idlib Province to Libya where a major showdown between the Turkish back Tripoli government and the Russian back General Haftar appears to be escalating with Egypt (supported by Saudi Arabia and the U.A.E.) is about to enter the fray as well to protect its western most border.

Meanwhile the Trump Administration finds itself paralyzed – it can’t withdraw from Syria nor can it escalate at the moment.

All that and more.
