Between The Lines: Jeffrey Sachs on US involvement in Syria

Earlier this month, US, British and French forces pounded chemical weapons sites in Syria with air strikes in response to an alleged poison gas attack that killed dozens in the rebel-held town of Douma last week.

The strikes were the biggest intervention by Western powers against President Bashar al-Assad in the country’s seven-year-old civil war, which has pitted the US and its allies against Russia.

Jeffrey Sachs, the world renowned economist and UN advisor, argues for the United States to end its military engagement in Syria.
