Following an appearance on a recent IPA press release, Michael Beer, Director of Nonviolence International, was interviewed by Mark Bebawi on “The Monitor,” where Beer discussed the tension between Turkey and the Kurds.

“Given hundreds of years of Turkish/Ottoman dominion over Arabs, this Turkish invasion is unlikely to gain much support in Syria or the Arab world. The timing is remarkable just as the vice president of the U.S. arrived in Turkey. The U.S. cooperated, in part, because the U.S. already has troops in Syria in violation of international law and the U.S. constitution and has no credible platform to protest … European governments support it, and the Iranians refuse to release a public statement. We are seeing more and more countries follow the U.S. and Russia’s example of using military force outside of international law. This is a dangerous direction for the future security of planet earth.”

Beer was also interviewed by Scott Harris on “Between the Lines.”
