Those who think the US Pentagon capable of a humanitarian military intervention or those who support Syrian bombing & Russian, & Iranian military intervention in Syria share the same political dysfunction. They do not understand the function of militarism under modern capitalism, particularly now in its barbaric phase. Wars of national liberation from colonialism have one political character & state militarism quite another. The distinction is written in human history, in the millions of unarmed civilians who died unspeakable deaths just in the past 100 years. To not understand that distinction is, quite frankly, willfully stupid.
