Syria Debate Goes On.

While the United States and Russia try to work out a deal for controlling the Syrian government’s chemical weapons stocks, the media debates continue. What follows is a recent episode of an RT news program “Worlds Apart” with host Oksana Boyko and Australian politician Gareth Evans, one of the architects of the so-called “R2P” doctrine. R2P stands for “right to protect”, a more theoretical than legal doctrine which gives states-countries the right  to take action when innocent lives are at risk in another country. It evidently was invoked during the defeat of Qaddafi, through air strikes against Libya. This exchange between Ms. Boyko, one tough-nosed journalist, and Mr. Evans is one of the most to-the-point, interesting television broadcasts I have come upon yet regarding the Syria crisis.
