Is the Russian intervention in Syria going to make things better or worse? What are the possible solutions for the Syrian crisis, and can the US work with Russia to end a war that has significant consequences for the Middle East and the world at large?

This week, Interpreter’s managing editor James Miller and Boston College professor Matt Sienkiewicz debate Russia, Syria, foreign policy, and the possible introduction of Joe Biden into the race for the next US President.
