[KNUS Denver] April 14th: Syria is Not a Boardgame

I appear on KNUS Denver with my old friend Steffan Tubbs. President Trump is talking tough on Syria after the Syrians apparently used WMD against their own citizens.  It is nothing short of horrific.  And yet, the President bounces back and forth about policies in the region.  This is not about going one direction or the other.  In fact, many directions have their pluses and minuses but when you do what thing, reverse course, reverse course again, you have almost all minuses. So, where is the President taking the country exactly?

This is the conversation.
