Russia’s latest involvement in the ever-worsening Syrian catastrophe — 
which has no doubt been fueled by the U.S. and its regional allies — is 
being embraced by much of the anti-imperialist Left as a direct 
confrontation to U.S. intentions in the region. If one is to buy 
Russia’s propaganda more than Western disinformation, we’d have to 
believe that Vladimir Putin’s invitation to drop bombs in Syria is 
solely meant to aid the Syrian Army against the growing threat of the 
Islamic State. That’s it. It’s a pseudo-peace mission. Get it?
