US Does Not Invoke NATO Charter to Close Turkey/Syria Border, Cut ISIS Recruitment: Prashad

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.”

    “Why didn’t they arrest Gadafi (illegal as that would have been)?”

    Same reason they didn’t arrest Bin Laden, and same reason they had Saddam Hussein hanged. “Dead men tell no tales”. Significantly, that particular slogan comes down to us from the pirates of the Caribbean. How envious Blackbeard would be, if he could see the immense power that his successors in the White House have secured!
