The US policy in Syria centered on ideas of democracy and freedom at the onset of the crisis. But with the rising body count and increasingly dim prospects for a settlement, policymakers have signaled a willingness to accept any deal that would end the violence. Could this shift in US thinking lead to a sustainable political solution, and is that enough to secure it, considering the complex geopolitical dynamics in the region? Oksana is joined by Dr David Lesch, Professor of Middle East History, to analyze these issues.
