If it has to be repeated till the cows come home, then so be it: calling on the US or Saudi Arabia to intervene on behalf of the Syrian revolution against Assad is the height of political imbecility. It betrays profound confusion about the character of the US Pentagon, about Saudi & US bombing in Yemen, about the US role in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan. Worst of all, it undermines defense of Syrians, Yemenis, Afghanis, Iraqis, Palestinians, Libyans, Somalis & hands Assadists a weapon to justify their US regime change crap.

The sophisticates who justify US or Saudi humanitarian intervention into Syria think a principled antiwar position is just so naive & stuck in yesterday. It would be a pleasure to debate any one of them & make chopped liver of their support for militarism.
