WorldMeets.us web site with interviewer William Kern to discuss the Paris Attacks & their aftermath:
From Paris, Dr. Hall Gardner, Chair of
International and Comparative Politics at The American University of
Paris, talks to William Kern about the attacks in and around Paris, the
mood of the city, and the French willingness to go to war against
Islamic State. Dr. Gardner warns of the manipulation of acts of
terrorism to justify wars, 'acts of repression', as well as heightened
and excessive surveillance, and said the United States and other states
did and continue to sponsor differing 'terrorist' or proxy groups
because there is no agreement about how to define the word 'terrorist'.
Gardner also expressed concern that major and regional power rivalries,
combined with acts of terrorism, could mean that we are on the cusp of a
conflict on a scale comparable to previous world wars...
