Abby Martin interviews Dr. Vijay Prashad, professor of International Studies at Trinity College and author of several books.
Dr. Prashad explains that the US allows Turkey to keep its border porous, benefiting ISIS and other groups working to overthrow Syria’s Assad and establish a Sunni state. The US could, but does not, invoke the NATO charter to require Turkey to close its border to cut ISIS recruitment, movement, and black market sales.
The US oligarchy “has an endgame: it is purely dystopic”, says Prashad.
“We have forgotten that we need to fight for an endgame. … The future is not merely resistance.”
