Syria and the War Within Islam
What Should the U.S. and Its Allies do Next?
Brigadier General Joe Shaefer
with further analysis by
and other experts
The Ramada, Wednesday, April 26, 2017, 9:00 a.m.
In retaliation for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s use of chemical weapons on civilians, President Trump launched a retaliatory attack using Tomahawk cruise missiles to inflict heavy damage on the airfield that Syrian bombers departed from. The question remains: what further action should President Trump take? Is the U.S. wise to involve itself in the six year old civil war, largely between various factions in the Islamic world, none of which we support (other than the rather ineffective Free Syrian army)?
Should the United States attempt to force the ouster of President Assad? Or will that only enhance prospects for the Islamic State and al-Qaeda and other Sunni factions? Should the U.S. be conducting military actions unilaterally or should any further action be done utilizing existing alliances? What consideration should be given to possible Russian and Iranian involvement?
General Joe Shaefer and other experts will analyze the state of the Syrian civil war, the various factions involved in that conflict, and the competing interests and positions of other players in the region.
More information to follow, but for now please just mark this date down on your calendars.
