[Marxism] Syrian Suggestion

Actually when Paddy wrote "US imperialism is a principal cause of the 
instability there" I thought he was referring to Iraq, as his post was 
about Iraq, so the statement was correct; and I thought Louis furious 
response was misplaced, as he assumed Paddy to be talking about Syria. 
But then Paddy reacts by affirming that "the principal source of 
instability in *Syria* lies with US imperialism."

How in the world the principle cause of "instability", whatever that 
means, in Syria can be the US is unknown. If only the S had given some 
proper backing to the "unstable" revolutionary uprising it would have 
been a good thing, but actually the US has been bombing Anyone But Assad 
for 2 years while enforcing its embargo on anti-aircraft missiles from 
getting to the FSA - the US is a major source of Assad's "stable" 
tyranny staying in power.
