US fighting with ISIS, 21st-century colonialism & Frankenstein foods (E243)

Afshin Rattansi goes underground on US airstrikes in Syria, 21st-century racism and GM foods in the UK. Sir William Patey, former Ambassador to Afghanistan and Iraq, on whether now that the USA appears to have launched a full scale war against Syria under the pretense of combating Islamic State (IS), it is actually really helping IS. Gary Wilder, anthropologist at the City University of New York, asks on the weekend of the anniversary of the shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, if racist police brutality is modern-day colonialism. Masha Kuzmenko asks if, while Congress passes a law banning labelling requirements for Frankenstein food in the US, Britain has already been poisoned by chicken fed with genetically-modified corn.
