In Middle East, US Relies on Military Solutions (As Usual)
Help SPC compile resources about this developing situation!
The Peace Council's leadership and core activists are in the process of developing a statement in response to the President's announcement last night that the US is preparing for an ongoing war against the Islamic State (also known as ISIS or ISIL). We are currently gathering and sharing resources, and we want your help! Below find links to a few of the articles that we've been reading this week, and we invite you to share articles with us as well. Please send a few links (and if possible, a sentence or two of synopsis for each) to firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll check them out and share what we get in Monday's e-newsletter.
- The Speech on Diplomacy That Obama Should Have Given Last Night by Phyllis Bennis
- What To Do About ISIS by David Swanson
- Democracy Now! interview with Rami Khouri
