The Arab spring that brought regime change to several Middle East countries sparked bloody unrest in Syria, where sectarian violence has claimed the lives of some 60,000 Syrians while hundreds of thousands have either fled the country or live as refugees in their own land. On the next Sound of Ideas, we'll talk with local Syrians and Middle East experts about about the reign of Bashar al-Assad, the future of Syria and the role of the United States. Join Mike McIntyre Thursday morning at 9:00.
