    Still wondering why rifuture is supporting what is clearly a grab for the Middle East on the part of the western powers and Israel.  Even Obama is backing away from the demands of the neo-cons (the Israeli surrogates who embroiled us so disastrously in Iraq and Libya).  Maybe the “leftism” of rifuture is only skin-deep or maybe its more like its counterpart, liberalism, the sort that seeks to intervene or people’s own good — even if it kills them.  Clearly, the Syrian people do not share Ms Shagwert’s sympathies.  If they did, there would no need to import these “saviors” into a situation where they’re neither needed nor welcomed.
