Why You Should Support the Syrian Revolution
A forum on its roots and prospects
In the last week the tide seems to have turned against the dictatorship of Bashar al-Assad, giving new hopes to the masses in Syria and supporters of the Arab Revolution throughout the world.
But the claims of Western governments and mainstream media on the one hand, and those who still believe Assad’s “anti-imperialist” rhetoric on the other, leave much confusion about where the Syrian revolution came from and where it’s going. What is the role of the various forces in the opposition? What would Western intervention mean for the fate of the Revolution?
