Could Obama have stopped the war in Syria before it got out of control? That's what The Guardian article West 'ignored Russian offer in 2012 to have Syria's Assad step aside' suggests. Middle East expert Alan Hart, in his new article, says: "Syria will be the biggest blot on the Obama presidency, 'a debacle of staggering proportions.'” In this interview we discuss the refugee crisis and the 9/11-triggered neocon-wars-for-Israel that caused it.

But as bad as Obama is, Alan says, a coming Republican presidency would be much, much worse. Dominated by neocons and by Zionist extremism (both Jewish and Christian varieties), a Republican presidency, Alan fears, would mean World War III.

Alan Hart has served as a back-channel Mideast peace negotiator as well as BBC correspondent. His book Zionism: The Real Enemy of the Jews is the best available introduction to the conflict in Occupied Palestine.
