What do you think about this article on what is happening in Syria from a revolutionary perspective?
http://revcom.us/a/444/syria-needs-a-re … to.twitter
What is unique about this article (coming from Revolution online Newspaper) is that it also lays out their solutions to this crisis, Syria being an example of what is a result of Capitalism-imperialism. But very few people, or none, have ever heard of this or have many misconceptions of what this is really all about. So perhaps questions might arise not only about Syria's situation, but also in light of what the Revolution is all about. All questions, criticism, comments are welcomed. as well as other sources
No, the problem is a resurgent Islam responding to a Europe that won't defend itself and US weakened by 2 trillion in debt from fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan.
That is why you see Shariah law in Aceh province in Indonesia now being applied to Christians, groups from Boko Haram and Al Shabab in Africa to Muslim militias in the Philippines to an emboldened ISIS bringing back sex slavery and openly uploading videos of beheadings and throwing homosexuals from rooftops online.
If you read the article, especially the bold section entitled, "The U.S & it's allies: Neck Deep in Syrian Blood", you will see that the U.S is in fact funneling $ and fueling these catastrophes. Perhaps what you've been reading is trying to cut U.S some 'slack' w/ one of the arguments being that the U.S does not have $ to participate
If you continue reading the next section, the bottom of it states, "Think about it. The U.S. has been waging war in the Middle East going on 15 years—justified with lies about “freedom,” “democracy,” ending terrorism, helping countries chart their own futures, etc. What’s the reality? The reality is that no one is MORE responsible for the death, destruction, and suffering visited upon Syria—and the peoples of the Middle East, North Africa, and Central Asia—than the U.S. Literally millions upon millions have been forced from their homes in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya, and Yemen by U.S. wars, invasions, occupations, drone strikes, covert operations, and other aggressions. All this has fueled the growth of the oppressive nightmare of fundamentalist Islamic jihad across the region, including in Iraq, which has directly stoked the bloodbath in Syria."
You should also finish the article. Only reading media with one form of ideology might stifle how we view what is really going on in the world. I have read conservative/left... not all are completely wrong about certain things and it depends on the journalist or even politician since not all their thoughts are uniformed with the way that "democrats" or "republicans" think. But we do need more regular citizens critically analyzing the situation from all viewpoints before being quick to internalize what one person or news media has to say. Because then these catastrophes continue to take place without seriously being questioned by the masses & only taking it in so that they know what is going on in the world but not really think they can do anything about it. Therefore people just read it as news and then forget about it. We must start taking this in differently.

It sounds to me that while there is a horrific Civil war going on in Syria, every one is trying to get the rest of the world outraged at what is going on within Syrian boarders. But is this another thing where we are being fed lies, or exaggerated truths to inspire us to rush of an "be the...

Not content with taking their Afghan war into Pakistan without seeking authorisation from the Pakistan government, the US has now decided to extend the Iraq operation into Syria, again without asking Damascus, risking reversing the recent good work of 'diplomatising' Syria. Is their any limit to...

What do you think about plastic surgery done on girls so they look like dolls?I don't think it is even ethical to make plastic surgery to make someone look like a cartoon character. I would question mental health of those girls, but if it is already happening and it is, it's time to stop and...
