Video Blog, Episode 3

Welcome back to Episode 3 of Abu Aardvark’s MEC Video Blog! In this week’s installment, I discuss the potential for a U.N. Security Council resolution on Syria. I was at the United Nations for Tuesday’s debate, and had the chance to talk to a number of key players. On Wednesday I posted my thoughts about what such a resolution might accomplish, and on the video blog I answer a number of questions that have been posed about those efforts. I also talk about Kuwait’s Parliamentary election, with a special appearance by former U.S. Ambassador to Kuwait Edward "Skip" Gnehm, and about what the horrible violence at a football game in Port Said might mean for Egypt’s political transition. 

Enjoy, and as always we welcome your feedback on our ongoing video blog experiment!
