There are a few Assad opponents parsing distinctions between US intervention in Syria & Iraq to justify US intervention in Syria on behalf of the revolution. Every US war is different because the politics of every country are different. But how has it escaped notice by those doing the exegeses that in every single war, bar not one, the US has intervened on behalf of dictatorship against popular movements for democracy & never the other way around? How can the fundamentally reactionary character of US militarism go over their heads with Yemen, Afghanistan, & yes, Iraq right next door? If you support US bombing in Syria, your outrage over Syrian & Russian bombing is not the least bit credible. Or what is Raqqa all about?
