Most of my political involvement and writing during the last several years has been connected to my participation in the Social Democrats USA. Therefore this blog has suffered. In an effort to remedy this situation. I am going to start by re-posting a post that I recently published on “Socialist Currents” the website / blog of the SD.
While the Social Democrats USA does not have a position regarding the quality of the Obama Administration’s performance in regard to ongoing war in Syria, I do. I believe that the administration’s commitment not to intervene under any circumstances is morally bankrupted.
Enclosed is a link to “Syria Is Not Iraq” an article published in the Atlantic Magazine by Shadi Hamid, the director of research, for the Brookings Institute Doha Center. The article explains extremely well some of the reasons why I believe what I do about this subject.
