[Marxism] Fwd: Why the Syria talks remind me of the Oslo process - Al Jazeera English

This is about what I was thinking too, except that my point of comparison
was to the Paris peace talks between the US (+ puppets) and the Vietnamese.
Not only did they not obtain anything useful (even after agreeing on the
shape of the negotiating table) but most of the US bombing and destruction
of the country (and a couple of neighboring countries) occurred after
formal "peace negotiations" had begun. Eventually the Vietnamese won
anyway, but that probably would not have been possible without great
material assistance from the Soviet Union, as well as widespread
international solidarity. Both of which are mainly lacking for the Syrians :-(
