Bush's article also appeared in Canadian Dimension, where he serves as
My articles have appeared there over the years and I consider the
founder Cy Gonick a friend.
But unfortunately, Cy and the other editors share the same messed up
views on Syria as Monthly Review, a magazine that obviously inspired
Canadian Dimension. A brief search on "Syria" will reveal articles that
condemn the White Helmets and other typically Assadist propaganda. They
have also published James Petras on Syria, who is a deranged anti-Semite
and I don't use that term lightly.
This stuff is like a disease that has infected the left like a venereal
disease. Trotsky once called Stalinism the syphilis of the workers
movement. This Assadism is like AIDS.
