[Marxism] Military Humanitarian Intervention: the Shock Doctrine Applied to Syria

I wonder if Prince or FPIF chose the pic for this crummy piece of 
un-researched "opinion". There you have a young Arabic-looking man, with 
a beard (just a short one, doesn't look particularly "jihadist"), 
holding a gun, with graffiti on the wall behind him reading "we will 
fight untill the end inshallah".

Now since Prince's article rests on the cartoonish view that the rebels 
are equally responsible with the regime for the slaughter and carnage 
and the continuation of the war (I mean, wtf??? Get a brain, like), we 
can only assume this pic is meant as a criticism of the rebels. Yet this 
pic could just as easily be Palestine, couldn't it? It could have been 
the Iraqi resistance to US occupation (where, btw, real 
jihadist-sectarian crimes of an enormous scale were actually carried 
out, unlike the scattering we see in Syria), couldn't it? Hell, it could 
have been a lot of places where people resist repression.

Hopefully we'll soon see Prince likewise prevailing on the victims in 
Palestine to give up the struggle as well, and stop "fighting until the 
end inshallah."
