    So, the US "destabilized" Syria? The Syrian people had no legitimate
grievances against the Assad Dynasty such as neoliberal privatization,
cutting back on social spending, corruption - and a brutal dictatorship?
This is typical of Left Orientalist thinking - the Syrian people have no
agency - they are mere pawns - "proxies" - of outside powers. It's sad to
see this on the Marxism list.
