    On this episode of Fault Lines, guests join hosts Garland Nixon and Lee Stranahan discussing the United States’s missile strikes against Syria and the mainstream media’s (mis)coverage of Syria and the Skripal case.

    Are the asserted justifications for the attacks valid? Why are U.S. standards, policy, and concerns (especially for human rights, democracy, violence) toward Syria's different from those re: other nations in the region?

    The hosts will also engage guests in discussions about the possible populist wave in the Southwestern Hemisphere as well as other top news and trending issues in the "Divided States of America."

    Scheduled guests and topics:

    Kevork Almassian — Syrian analyst (based in Germany), founder of Syriana Analysis Topic: Debunking Myths About Syria
