Louis you've provided a real service in pinpointing the source of this
horrific illness and those responsible.
But once again a fine analysis of yours is spoiled by your conclusion that
there is no hope for the victims, that no matter what they do Washington
has the upper hand.
Were your years in CISPES then wasted? How do you account for your
admirable steadfastness today in support of the Syrian people?
Yes, the odds are against the Salvadorans and Syrians and Greeks and so
on... but does that not just argue for broader and more tightly-connected
struggle and solidarity?
