The Syrian Revolution Is a Class War

13 Mar

4yrsNever in human history has there been a revolution quite like the Syrian revolution.

Never in human history have a people dared to struggle against such an imposing array of forces as the Syrian people. Ranged against them is the regime of Bashar al-Assad and all its resources – sarin, scud missiles, MiG jets, death squads, allied media outlets, and useful idiots like Robert Fisk. Ranged against them are not only Assad’s armed forces but the armed forces of Hezbollah, Iran, and Iraq’s militias, tens of thousands of Shia men with an unlimited supply of modern Russian weapons, a sophisticated command-and-control system, billions of dollars in funds, and a logistical infrastructure stretching from Tehran to Beirut. Ranged against them is an unholy alliance of imperialist powers (East and West) and their ‘anti-imperialist’ opponents in which Rand Paul and Donald Rumsfeld join hands with George Galloway and Nicolás Maduro to keep the Syrian people politically isolated as they battle the most murderous fascist since Adolf Hitler. Ranged against them are the combined forces of famine, pestilence, cynicism, treachery, paralysis, infighting, indifference, defeatism, fatigue, exhaustion, and death. Continue reading

The Moderate Rebels: A Complete and Growing List of Vetted Groups

21 Oct

(UPDATE May 10: 2015: Hasan Mustafa has the most up to date version of this list and there have been some significant changes. Please visit his blog by clicking here.)

Shortly after U.S. president Obama declared war on the so-called Islamic State (ISIS/IS), a bogus claim by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) about a non-aggression pact between ISIS and an unnamed unit of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) went viral largely due to ignorance about which moderate rebels the U.S. and its “Friends of Syria” allies are supporting. This guest post by Hasan Mustafa (@hasanmustafas) is an attempt to cure that ignorance and make future pseudo-scandals less likely by detailing who the U.S.-backed moderate rebels are using open-source information.

YPG and FSA Unite Against Terrorism and for a Free, Democratic Syria

18 Oct

To the media and the general public,

It has been 33 days that the city of Kobane has been fighting terrorism in eventful days of resistance, redemption, and enormous sacrifices in combating the terrorist attacks of ISIS and its evils. For this organization which has become the biggest threat to the global peace and stability, the battle of Kobane poses a historic turning point. We are certain that the result of this battle will shape the future of Syria and the democratic struggle for freedom and peace. We want it to be known that the victory in Kobane is a victory for all Syria, and it will also be a major defeat for ISIS and terrorism.

The same day the U.S. and an internally contradictory ‘grand coalition’ correctly and justly launched airstrikes on the Islamic State’s (ISIS/ISIL/Daesh) Syrian safe haven in Syria, the U.S. launched another war, a unilateral war, on Syria’s Al-Qaeda branch, Jabhat al-Nusra, in separate but simultaneous attacks in Idlib and Aleppo governates.

Contradictions of the Post-Revolution Assad Regime in Syria’s Protracted Anti-Fascist War

1 Aug

The Leviathan built by Hafez al-Assad, a fascist state stretching from Daraa in the west of Syria to Deir Ezzor in the east, has been shattered irrevocably by the popular upsurge of the March 15 revolution. Born as a peaceful protest movement for dignity and political reform, the Syrian uprising painfully and organically developed into a revolutionary war to liberate the country from the misrule of Bashar al-Assad’s fascist clique and dismantle his regime’s barbaric institutions.
