In distinction to the bullshit from Assad propagandists Beeley & Bartlett, this is a cogent analysis of the serious threat of coronavirus in Syria–a threat not only to Syrians but to the world. The Assad regime continues to deny the spread of the epidemic probably hoping it will devastate the opposition militias & the millions of civilian refugees who dared defy the regime. It’s overwhelming to consider what Syrians have suffered against the regime, bombers, militias, propaganda lies, & the complete capitulation of the international antiwar movement to Assadism.

Demand the immediate cessation of bombing, the immediate, unconditional withdrawal of all foreign troops & militias, & immediate medical care & food to the refugees.
