Vijay Prashad is politically lost

Vijay Prashad has an article in Alternet titled “What, Exactly, Is Going on in Syria?” raising the question what the hell is going on in Vijay Prashad’s head? He exhibits no understanding at all of the titanic conflict between revolution against Assad’s dictatorship & the counter-revolution involving Syria, Russia, the US, Iran, et al. For him, it’s all about the Taliban, al-Qaeda, & ISIS.

Political analysis might not be the wisest choice for an elitist who doesn’t see the role of working people in Syria & who hasn’t compensated for elitism with diligent study.
