In the October edition of Australian socialist magazine Solidarity, 
James Supple writes about the situation in Syria. He says in part:

'We should oppose Russian, US and Australian bombing as well as all 
forms of foreign imperialist intervention.'

Later on he argues:

'Assad is no lesser evil to Islamic State and similar rebel groups like 
the Al Qaeda affiliate Jabhat al Nusra. Like IS, the Assad regime also 
ruthlessly represses any political dissent, has targeted ethnic 
minorities and is waging sectarian war.

'The solution to the nightmare in Syria can only come through a revival 
of the democratic movement that erupted in 2011.'
