The American Debate Over Syria
Matthew RJ Brodsky and Aaron David Miller Face-Off
CCTV: The Heat
June 24, 2012
On June 24, Matthew RJ Brodsky squared off on CCTV's "The Heat" with Aaron David Miller, Middle East analyst, author, and negotiator, and Fellow at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. The segment was on the question of whether the U.S. should intervene in Syria. Brodsky argued that Syria is a vital security interest to the U.S. and that America should identify elements of the Free Syrian Army to provide training, intelligence, and weapons. Miller argued that the U.S. should not get involved in another Middle East mess or embark on another ill-conceived adventure. The Brodsky-Miller segment begins at 14:30 and continues until 24:00.
