If anti-Assad political forces want to understand why they’ve been unable to build a strong movement to defend the Syrian uprising, they can stop shouting down the non-existent left & start examining their own voluble war mongering to get the US military more involved than it already is with over 100,000 bomb strikes. Their political analyses read like battlefield reports & that from people who have never been to war but because their politics, rooted in militarism, are bereft. Dare I suggest that class is very much involved in this cockeyed political perspective? It’s working class American kids who’ll get their asses shot off in Syria without advancing the working class in Syria one iota. This “Syrians are praying for US intervention” stuff is just horse manure & nothing more.
