Assad & Al-Qaeda, rebel music & who benefits from bombs in Syria? (E285)
Afshin Rattansi goes underground on peace in the Middle East, Britain’s dealings in Yemen, war profiteers and protest songs. Former Ambassador to Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan and Iraq, Sir William Patey, tells us why British bombs on Syria are helping to bring stability to the region. Afshin investigates the connect between Assad and Al Qaeda. We speak to Anthony Loewenstein, author of ‘Disaster Capitalism: Making A Killing Out Of Catastrophe’ about the price tag of conflict and catastrophes across 4 continents. Plus Afshin is joined by Founder of None of the Above (NOTA UK), Jamie Stanley aka MAILMAN, as he discusses and sings his new single ‘Never Be Safe’.
