Call in to speak with the host
As the United States and its allies begin to "lean forward" into the ongoing Syrian Civil War, a number of measures are being considered to assist the FSA rebels with their insurgency against the Assad regime in Damascus. One of the most controversial ideas being discussed is the establishment of a “No-Fly” zone to eliminate the Syrian government advantage of their own Air Force. Proposed by political leaders, diplomats, and policy experts from across the political spectrum and around the world, a No-Fly zone would eliminate the Syrian Air Force from the ongoing conflict.
But what is the downside of establishing a No-Fly zone in serious? Are the consequences of the United States establishing such a regime really worth the potential risks?
To get a better understanding of how No-Fly zones work, and the potential consequences/benefits of doing so over Syria, joined host John D. Gresham for Military Monday. His guest will be one of the world's leading experts, Col. Walter Boyne, USAF (Ret.), author of numerous books on airpower and aviation history, as well as a an expert television commentator on those subjects. Along with explaining how No-Fly zones are established, operated and maintained, they will explain the unique problems inherent to a Syrian No-Fly zone, including the presence of Russian S-300-series Surface-to-Air missiles and operators.
