Comprehensive analysis of US intervention in Syria a crying need

Trump issued a warning to Syria against another gas attack on civilians. Since the US is using white phosphorous in both Mosul & Raqqa, we know the warning is not based on concern for civilians.

There appears to be a shift developing in US strategy in Syria & this requires analysis. There has never really been a comprehensive analysis of US intervention in Syria since it entered the scene as part of counter-revolutionary forces to defeat the popular uprising against Assad. Rightwing Assadist forces see it as a regime-change operation whilst conservative anti-Assad forces believe the US can switch sides to the revolution & they call for a US-imposed No Fly Zone, which is an act of war.

This comprehensive analysis is long overdue & absolutely critical to supporting the Syrian revolution against Assad’s dictatorship. The only principled antiwar demands are the immediate cessation of Syrian bombing of civilians & the immediate, unconditional withdrawal of all foreign military forces in Syria.
