Independent investigative journalist Joe Lauria discusses his article “What Russia Fears in Syrian Conflict;” the Western media’s practice of only telling the US side of the story in international conflicts; Russia’s concern of an Islamic government coming to power in Syria; why the usual reasons given for Russia’s support of Assad – the naval base at Tartus and arms sales – aren’t that big a deal; how short-term thinking in US foreign policy produces unwanted consequences; and NATO’s usefulness as a war-enabling mechanism when the UN Security Council proves uncooperative.
