Time to protest against people and groups, whose actions support the survival of the Assad regime. In the UK, the Hard Left pro-Putin “Stop The War Coalition” and the left populist “Scottish National Party” get votes from being against any intervention (after invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan, sold as humanitarian intervention). Both groups claim all intervention, must be like mis-sold right-wing intervention in Iraq. The people of Syria are trying to remove the Assad elite, while the Left in the West either shrugs or actively campaigns for the denial of the support they are screaming for. This is a betrayal of breath taking hypocrisy. BUT a growing number of socialists and others, are standing up against this.
