Why You Should Support the Revolution Against Assad, And Why It’s “OK” If You Don’t

I posted a comment:

Hi there Michael,

I learned of this blog by way of my friend and comrade
Art Francisco.

I thought your post was quite good. Nearly everything
in it is (or should be) common sense. Unfortunately,
the movement here in the U.S. is so dysfunctional that
this kind of common sense is not common.

Yes, the only thing that is important is that we build
a movement here in the U.S. to oppose increased
intervention in Syria by “our own” U.S. imperialism.

Your arguments against the various wrong positions that
are common in the left are logical and concise and
presented with clarity and depth. Particularly good
is your explanation for why the current upsurge in
Syria represents the aspirations of the masses there
for the democratic openings they need in order to
organize to defend their class material interests. And
your description of the various currents there strikes
me as thoughtful.

I hope to find a few minutes to look at some of your
other posts. It is refreshing to find posts such as
yours and I hope it is representative of the kind of
clarity which I hope will increasingly be emerging as
the revolutionary movement in this country begins to
find its footing.
