Foreign Intervention and Nuclear Power

Friday, 6 September 2013 | A Public Affair

If the U.S. got involved with Syria’s affairs, would the outcome be efficient or beneficial? On Friday September 6th, our host Esty Dinur talked with UW-Madison Professor Andrew Kydd about the possible attack by the U.S. against Syria and what the possible consequences could be if the U.S. does decide to take action. On the second half of the show, University of New York/College at Old Westbury ProfessorĀ Karl Grossman about the continuing and escalating Fukushima disaster.

Dinur and Kydd analyzed the over-all impact of the possible involvement of the U.S. in Syria. Kydd discussed the possible consequences on U.S. intervention in Syria and whether or not the U.S. would actually being helping Syria. Grossman and Dinur talked about the continuing issues that Japan faces from the fall-out of Fukushima roughly two after the terrible nuclear disaster. Grossman informed listeners about not only the damage caused by the nuclear disaster, but also about the politics behind nuclear politics in general.
