November 24, 2015 at 5:39 PM

Eric Draitser appears on KPFA (94.1FM – Berkeley, CA) to provide his analysis of Turkey’s downing of a Russian jet along the Turkish-Syrian border. Draitser argues that Turkish President Erdogan used this pretext to attack Russia for destroying the terrorist groups and infrastructure that Turkey has long been supporting. He also explains Turkey’s regional ambitions of hegemony, the reason it has been set on destroying Syria, and how Russia might respond. All this and much more in this 20 minute interview.
