Media Ignores Ominous Signs of Escalation in Syria War

GUEST: Joe Lauria, is an international affairs correspondent, who has written for the Consortium News, Middle East Eye and Wall Street Journal, among others, joining us live from Iraq.

The war in Syria rages on, despite world attention and a refugee exodus. United Nations sponsored peace talks, which were set to kick start another round of diplomatic discussions earlier this month, stalled within days. The talks are set to resume in Geneva on February 25th. But ominous signs and statements from the US and other countries suggest that it is readying a ground offensive.

    Hi Sonali,

    Would it be possible to put the transcripts of your programs on the computer? I just don’t have time to sit at my computer to listen to your great programs, unfortunately. Being able to print and read them later would be of great help to me.

    Thank you so much – listening to the people who have been given your time slot is painful to boring. They don’t understand how to interview people or how to find interesting people to interview. I have finally stopped listening to them,
