Eugene Coalition Task Force
Some Portland "left" seems to support every status quo dictator in power.. and supported Kadafy and Mubarak...except of course we all don't like Obama. The question is, do the Syrian people have a right to rebel against fascist oppression? Do they have a right to accept aid, including food and arms, from countries in the west who have their own vested interests?
If and when the time comes for a certain North American state power to experience a real people's revolt, there may be an east Asian country or two that thinks they can also benefit by toppling the bad guy on the North American block. Or perhaps a South American country may be glad to see a change in power up North.
But do you think the rebels, facing a vast technological war machine of repression, should go at it with sticks and rocks?
The people of Syria will use whatever help they can get. And Assad will use his Russian tanks, blockbuster bombs, and chemical nerve gas.
So if you are an internationalist, and not an America first isolationist with your head in the sand, which side are you on???
