Whither the Syrian Revolution?


Syrian banner on Russian bombingAs the so-called peace conference is suspended in Geneva, Russian and Syrian bombing of villages is killing hundreds of civilians and creating hundreds of thousands more refugees.

The U.S. has cut off even the most meager aid to Free Syrian Army forces, even as it opens a new U.S. air base in a part of Syria controlled by Kurds. The major city of Aleppo is under siege by the regime and its foreign allies and also by ISIS.

Have the big powers agreed to “solve the crisis” through the liquidation of the Syrian Revolution?

What does this mean for those of us who support the Revolution? And how will the Revolution of Freedom and Dignity, which has faced so many seemingly insurmountable obstacles, rise to meet this latest challenge?

Free and open discussion led off by Bob McGuire, News & Letters labor page editor
