Joseph Daher, this “Syrian-Swiss Marxist intellectual with a PhD in Development at the University of SOAS, London” also has a piece in Socialist Resistance No 80. In that very long article and in this one he utterly fails to find anything wrong with what he calls “the West” except they are failing in their duty to assist “the revolution” adequately – this from SR 80: “the absence or lack of any kind of “large” organised and decisive military assistance of the USA and/or Western states to the Syrian revolutionaries is another proof of the lack of will for any radical change (!!!) in Syria.” And “We should support the provision and delivery of arms with no political conditions attached (!!!) from the West to democratic sections of the FSA.” They are not opposed to any solution merely assert that “any kind of ‘realistic solution’ in the medium and long term cannot include Assad and other criminals with blood on their hands.” And he complains bitterly, and the so-called Marxists of SR highlight this, of: “the absence of any clear policy from Western powers (would these be US-dominated global imperialism, Marxist Comrade Daher?) to assist the revolutionaries in Syria.”
One has to observe that the essential message from these diatribes, if we leave aside a few pseudo-leftist phrases, would not be out of place in far right Neo-Con propaganda or from the CIA itself.
