    Life of Mammals [#105Z] Meat Eaters From the very first time mammals walked on the planet there has been both hunter and hunted. The pressure to evolve speed, endurance and maneuverability has helped them to outwit each other and occupy their very own niche. For the first mammalian hunters that came down from the trees their small size and agility proved to be a winner, but as they ventured further a field they needed to change to stay as the top hunters.
    In the frozen north the artic fox needs to hunt during warmer times and cache this food to survive the winter. In southern climates leopards and tigers have become solitary hunters relying on stealth and surprise to catch their next meal, coming together only to mate. Others around the globe like wolves and lions work in teams and family groups so they can tackle larger prey and better protect their young. But their efficiency as hunters makes it essential that their family life is held together and tightly controlled. With all hunters the aggression of the kill means the difference between life and death.

    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.
