No way out? Syria’s opposition grows stronger, but so does Assad’s regime
Michael O’Hanlon, senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, joins “Viewpoint” host Eliot Spitzer to analyze the worsening situation in Syria, and what — if anything — the United States can do about it.
Referring to how Syria’s opposition is “not going away” despite increasing violence — including civilian massacres — perpetrated by President Bashar al-Assad’s regime, O’Hanlon says, “We’re going to have to have some kind of power sharing or this is not going to end in any kind of near-term future.”
“I wish there were a happier storyline,” he says.
