Syrian Motivations

A great interview with Barry Rubin, who just wrote an insightful book “The Truth About Syria“.  A few excerpts:

“While the Syrian regime poses as being desirous of peace and engagement with the West, in fact its institutions, ideology, propaganda, and activities go in the exact opposite direction. To survive, the minority-dominated, dictatorial, and economically incompetent government needs radicalism, control over Lebanon, regional instability, anti-Americanism, and using Israel as a scapegoat.”
