This is the first article I have seen from the Baathist left that at 
least acknowledges that Obama has no plans to show up on an aircraft 
carrier with his testicles protruding from a flight uniform. The 
problem, of course, is that this is not a "new" strategy. Obama never 
had any intentions to launch a Bush-style invasion of Syria.

Hopefully I will be able to flesh out my thoughts on this sometime this 

The one thing I can say on behalf of Shamus Cooke, a member of a tiny 
sect that split from Peter Taaffe's American branch office, is that at 
least he addresses the failure of such an invasion to have been mounted 
which is more than I can about Patrick Cockburn, Robert Fisk, Pepe 
Escobar, Phyllis Bennis, John Rees, et al.
