Those raising false "anti-imperialist" flags to justify their support for a capitalist regime involved in horrifying repression of its people are ignoring reality. Israel, the key imperialist asset in the region, very clearly sees the Syrian rebellion as a far worse alternative to the Assad regime. Assad's Western defenders either don't mention Israel at all when they list the countries they think are waging "war on Syria" (and hope no-one notices the omission); or, even worse, they add Israel to their list despite the evidence (and hope no-one notices).
