Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Wednesday) | Listen to this entire show:
Today on Radioactivity Rob Lorei talks about the recent escalation in tensions between the US and Syria. The Associated press is reporting that Anti-regime activists in Syria say members of a U.N. team of chemical weapons experts have been working today in a large Damascus suburb that was affected by last week's alleged chemical attack. Today's visit is the second by the U.N. inspectors to areas that were said to have been targeted by the attack. The visit comes as the U.N.'s envoy to Syria says evidence suggests that some kind of "substance" was used in the attack. According to the group Doctors Without Borders, 355 people were killed. Syria, which has one of the world's largest stockpiles of chemical weapons, is denying the charges that it carried out a chemical attack. Still, the U.S. and its allies appear to be moving toward a military strike on the Assad regime.
Policy Director of Just Foreign Policy Robert Naiman speaks with Rob Lorei about the Syrian Crisis. Naiman recently wrote the article "President Obama: Don't Strike Syria Without Congressional Approval." and a petition he initiated has over 13,000 signers in the last 24 hours.
