US War in Libya: Lessons Learned for Syria

Michael Shank, Ph.D., Director of Foreign Policy at the Friends Committee on National Legislation and Adjunct Faculty at George Mason University’s School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution discusses the two-year anniversary of the US war in Libya.  Shank explores the lessons learned from the Libya invasion, the parallels with the conflict in Syria, the US-exacerbated problem of arms-trafficking in Africa, and the US government’s ability, or lack thereof, to build socio-economic and political capacity in intervened and invaded countries.  Video courtesy of RT.
