Hi Maziar,

Thanks for your comments. It sounds like we have agreement on a lot of the fundamentals.

There are two points I'm not sure about in your statement

i) The slogan "US hands off Syria". Isn't it a bit out of place when Russia, Iran, Hezbollah etc have far more fingers wrapped about Syria - in support of Assad! - than the US does?

ii) The slogan "Down with the Assad regime". Isn't that the wrong way of putting it when the immediate alternative, the Islamist/Sunni sectarian militias, are equally reactionary and likely to lead to the disintegration of Syria?

It would be good to hear your views on these slogans.

Thanks again, comrade.
