When I came of age politically in the period of the Vietnam War, the antiwar movement was international, with millions protesting that war on every continent. As they did the Iraq War nearly 30 years later. Now the Stalinist & Assadist cult that’s destroyed & replaced the antiwar movement claims they cannot speak out against Russian bombing in Syria because only “US regime-change operations” are their concern. That might explain their complete silence on India’s siege of Kashmir & the Burmese genocide of Rohingya. But it doesn’t explain why they’re so voluble in denouncing the Hong Kong protesters in China unless they’re making the deranged claim that 1.7 million protesters are a “US regime-change operation” against China. But indeed, they are making that claim. Marx once said that history repeats itself, first as tragedy, then as farce. With Stalinism & Assadism, you can’t distinguish which is which.
