    National Parks: America's Best Idea [#101H] The Scripture of Nature (1851-1890) In 1851, word spreads across the country of a beautiful area of California's Yosemite Valley, attracting visitors who wish to exploit the land's scenery for commercial gain and those who wish to keep it pristine. Among the latter is a Scottish-born wanderer named John Muir, for whom protecting the land becomes a spiritual calling. In 1864, Congress passes an act that protects Yosemite from commercial development for "public use, resort and recreation" - the first time in world history that any government has put forth this idea - and hands control of the land to California. Meanwhile, a "wonderland" in the northwest corner of the Wyoming territory attracts visitors to its bizarre landscape of geysers, mud pots and sulfur pits. In 1872, Congress passes an act to protect this land as well. Since it is located in a territory, rather than a state, it becomes America's first national park: Yellowstone. duration 1:56:46   SRND51 TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Moyers & Company [#235H] What Are We Doing In Syria? With the probability of American intervention, Syria is everywhere in the news. This week Phil Donahue, filling in for Bill Moyers, speaks with NPR Middle East correspondent Deborah Amos and historian and Vietnam veteran Andrew Bacevich about the possible repercussions of our actions in the Middle East.
    As he has so often in recent years, historian and analyst Andrew Bacevich is asking the important questions about America's role in the world and specifically why we should go into Syria. Is a military response justified and if we take action, where does it stop? A graduate of West Point and Vietnam veteran, he served for 23 years in the military before becoming a professor at Boston University. His new book, Breach of Trust: How Americans Failed Their Soldiers and Their Country, asks whether our reliance on a professional military rather than a citizen's army has lured us into a morass of endless war - a trap that threatens not only our global reputation but democracy itself.
    Among its deadly side effects, the war in Syria has created a refugee crisis beyond that country's borders - a "disgraceful humanitarian calamity" and "the great tragedy of this century," according to the UN. Deborah Amos is a veteran National Public Radio Middle East correspondent. She wrote about the exiled and dispossessed of the region in her book Eclipse of the Sunnis: Power, Exile, and Upheaval in the Middle East and has been in the refugee camps and on the Syrian front lines. Amos joins Donahue for a discussion of the human toll of the Syrian fighting, and the potential impact of millions of displaced people on the region.
    As members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee reached an agreement late Tuesday on wording of a new resolution authorizing US military force against the Syrian government, events will likely change quickly. What won't have changed is the need for a full discussion of our motives and American foreign policy, not just when it comes to Syria but in the entire Middle East.
