It was once wrenching for me to see people I held in high esteem & worked with in the antiwar movement sharing articles from Assad propagandists like Eva Bartlett, Mint Press, Global Research, defending “self-determination” for the Assad regime against the Syrian Arab Spring uprising, & defending Syrian & Russian bombing of civilians as a fight against ‘jihadist terrorism’. Now I’m just waiting for their other shoe to drop so they can limp off to the oblivion which their corrupt, rotten politics deserve.
