9/27/19 Ali Demirdas Explains Why the YPG Can’t Do What Washington Wants

Ali Demirdas talks about the Syrian YPG, a Kurdish organization associated with the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, which America has supported against Assad in Syria. Demirdas thinks this partnership is ill-advised, and that the YPG’s chances of ruling significant parts of the country without U.S. support are low. He also outlines some of the ways America has strengthened Iran’s influence in the Middle East again and again, even though they are supposedly our biggest enemy in the region.

Discussed on the show:

Ali Demirdas, has a Ph.D. in political science from the University of South Carolina and is professor of international affairs at the College of Charleston. Follow him on Twitter @demirdasPhD.
