Syria: A First Hand Report

Posted: February 3, 2015 at 12:25 pm by , in Breaking News, Featured, Morning Magazine

Foreign Correspondent and investigative reporter Reese Erlich has covered Syria for many years. He returned from his latest trip to Syria in August 2014 and he writes about his experiences in his latest book: “Inside Syria: The Backstory of Their Civil War and What the World Can Expect”. Erlich says that people in Syria are understandably worried about the Islamic State but that the US bombing is making the situation worse. “It became very clear to me, based on the reporting, what a disaster the US bombing is…starting yet another war which is not going to be winnable.”

 

 

Reese Erlich will speak about his new book and current events in Syria Thursday  February 5th at 7pm at the Reiman Theater at the University of Denver, and on Sunday February 8th at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Boulder at 7pm.
