For Arab-Kurdish unity against dictatorship


Spanish propaganda poster in support of Syria's Kurdish resistance reads: "United Against the Dictatorship." Now that ISIS has forced Obama's hand by threatening the entire region, the White House will have to decide whether to throw in its lot with the Syrian revolution or the Bashar Assad dictatorship. Assad is meanwhile hoping to exploit tensions between the Kurdish resistance and the Free Syrian Army, and sabotage their alliance. World War 4 Report's Bill Weinberg argues that progressives in the West should support the FSA in its demand that the US adopt its revolutionary program—even as we reject the FSA's burgeoning alliance with Turkey's Tayyip Erdogan, enemy of Kurdish self-determination.
