At the demonstrations organized by STW some present were holding 
Baathist flags and pictures of the mass-murderer Assad. Seriously, a 
blatant fascist presence was considered acceptable at a protest 
organized by people who describe themselves as leftists. It is no wonder 
that their demonstrations were small (compared to the heyday of the Iraq 
war demos), with no large scale Syrian or Muslim presence. I am sure 
many who oppose the bombing of Syria would feel alienated joining a 
protest organized by those who ally themselves with a regime that 
practices torture on an industrial scale, sodomizes its opponents with 
broken bottles, and gasses civilian neighbourhoods.
