"The YPG is a mercenary offering its services to the highest
bidder."

I'm agnostic verging on doubtful on the question of whether the Kurds
represent a truly revolutionary force. (The Scoop Jackson's Society's
trashing them is a vote in their favor though.)

But referring to any indigenous Syrian force as mercenaries when their are
thousands of foreign jihadists holed up in Idlib is either active hypocrisy
or political projection. In your framework are they like the
Internationalists who fought in Spain? I'm truly curious as to what armed
faction you think does represent the "revolutionary masses in Syria" and
who backs them.
