While reports filter out of East Ghouta about suffering on a massive 
scale reminiscent of the siege of Leningrad in 1941, some on the left 
support Assad’s war crimes because they see them as necessary for 
winning the war on terror just as Germans supported the war on 
Bolshevism back then.

Three of Assad’s leading defenders are associated with Alternet’s Gray 
Zone, a project initiated by Max Blumenthal who was soon joined by Ben 
Norton and Rania Khalek in churning out talking points for the Baathist 
dictatorship. Perhaps the rumor mill’s whispers are correct that the 
Gray Zone has gotten the axe. That would explain why the three have used 
other mediums to defend a harsh but necessary siege.
