Robert Farley (Lawyers, Guns and Money, University of Kentucky) and Daniel Trombly (Slouching Towards Columbia)

On Foreign Entanglements, Rob and Dan discuss whether Assad can survive in Syria. Could the existence of the International Criminal Court be prolonging the conflict? Rob asks Dan how the Syrian army lost control of the country, and they discuss the government’s use of ballistic missile strikes. Would partitioning the country be a realistic option? Moving to domestic politics, they consider what doomed Susan Rice’s bid to be Secretary of State, evaluate the potential nomination of Chuck Hagel as Secretary of Defense, and conclude with the possibility of Secretary of State John Kerry.
