Following an appearance on a recent IPA news release, Vijay Prashad, author and professor of International Studies at Trinity College, penned an article for AlterNet, in which he discussed the possible negative consequences of U.S. military action in Libya.
“Will the airstrikes actually degrade and destroy the Islamic State? It is not merely the Islamic State that is Libya’s problem. Airstrikes such as this will only move these fighters to other locations – to Tunisia, for instance, or to Benghazi. They will continue to be a serious problem in North Africa.”
He also recently wrote “The World After Obama,” for Counterpunch. His most recent book is The Death of the Nation and the Future of the Arab Revolution.
