So will many, me included.

However, we must have a very open mind as to what will happen.  I 
would be in no way surprised to find out that when this unity begins 
to -untidily, as history always is- take shape some will begin to 
advance "Leftist" arguments against this "reactionary, bourgeois, 
dictatorial" unity.

What if, against all expectations, this unity finally ends up with a 
return of Ba'ath to leadership?  I would not rule this possibility 
out.  I would rather be more reassured if a new, bolder and more 
"socialist" leadership brings the Arab peoples to a new level of 
political struggle.  But let us for a second think of the possibility 
that Ba'ath _does_ recover the leading role.

Will you, and others on this list, be ready to raise your cup to that 
kind of resistence, Gary my dear friend?

I will, because "a single step ahead is worth a thousand programs".
