It depends on what you mean by advice. I advised Australians on this 
mailing list that they are romanticizing the YPG. On the other hand, I 
would not advise them on whether to vote for the Green Party or for the 
Labour Party in Australia because I simply don't know enough about these 
parties. What I am opposed to is the "Coyoacan Complex" in which you 
find would-be Trotsky's using their authority to influence the tactics 
of the left in a country thousands of miles away. Not that I have much 
authority except to run this mailing list.
