[Marxism] PYD/YPG boasts its joint operations with Assad's army

If Assad's army was willing to cooperate with the SDF in resisting the Turkish invasion, that would be a good thing.  But they can not be relied on to do this.  There may be occasional clashes between Assad's army and the invaders, but up to now the regime has offered little resistance to the invasion.  See for example:


Assad hopes that the Turkish invasion will weaken the SDF sufficiently that they will submit to his rule.  At the same time he is probably worried that Turkey, having occupied a large part of northern Syria, will try to make its occupation permanent, like the Israeli occupation of the Golan heights.  So there is some possibility of conflict between Assad and Turkey, despite their common interest in crushing the Rojava revolution.

The "Rojava Network" (close to the PYD/YPG) boasts that it has
“liberated” some areas with the help of Assad’s army. So they no longer
deny that they are fighting hand in hand with the butcher.


So the so-called "Rojava Revolution" (a myth to lull the so-called
"left") is defended with the armies of Assad, Trump and Putin. And we,
naive Marxists, thought that one has to fight against imperialist Great
Powers and dictatorships! Fortunately, Öcalan enlightens our knowledge!
