Robert Wright (Bloggingheads.tv, The Evolution of God, Nonzero) and Shadi Hamid (Brookings Institution, Temptations of Power)

Shadi details how the US should aid the Syrian rebels, and Bob asks if he’s really ready for all-out war. Bob asks whether intervening wouldn’t mean being on Al Qaeda’s side. Bob and Shadi disagree about the lessons of Libya. They close by discussing which is more naïve—believing that sanctions will topple Assad or believing that military intervention would bring stable peace.
