“Situation is getting worse day by day”


LATEST


The UN has again called on the Assad regime to allow evacuation of the sick from the besieged East Ghouta area near Syria’s capital Damascus.

The children’s agency UNICEF appealed on Sunday for the immediate transfer of scores of suffering children. It said five have reportedly died, while 137 others — ranging from seven months to 17 years —- require immediate medical assistance.

“The situation is getting worse day by day,” said Fran Equiza, UNICEF’s representative in Syria. “The health system is crumbling and schools have now been closed for almost a month. Sick children desperately need medical evacuation and many thousands more are being denied the chance of a normal, peaceful childhood.”

The Assad regime has denied permission for almost all aid to East Ghouta, which has been besieged and bombarded for four years. The siege has been tightened this year on the area’s 390,000 residents, with the closure of tunnels and the last checkpoint for passage of supplies. The UN has warned of a “complete catastrophe”, with many people — including about 12% of children — facing acute malnutrition and death from medical conditions.

UNICEF’s Equiza called for “unimpeded, unconditional and sustained humanitarian access” across Syria: “Now is the time for all sides to do the right thing and to stop the violence.”


Russia’s Putin Visits Airbase in Western Syria, Again Declares A Troop Withdrawal

President Vladimir Putin has made an unannounced visit to Russia’s Hmeimim Airbase in western Syria, addressing military personnel.

Putin made yet another declaration that he ordered the withdrawal of Russian troops, saying this followed the defeat of “the most battle-hardened grouping of international terrorists”.

Since Russia’s military intervention in September 2015, the President has repeatedly said that troops will be scaled down, only for Moscow to escalate its air and ground activities.

Putin was greeted at the base by Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoygu and Bashar al-Assad. After the visit, the Russian President will have talks with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi in Cairo, and a meeting with Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan in Ankara.


Assad Regime Delegation Returns to Geneva Talks After 9-Day Walkout

The Assad regime’s delegation returned to UN-supported political talks in Geneva on Sunday, ending a nine-day walkout.

The delegation, led by the regime’s UN Ambassador Bashar al-Ja’afari, had left on December 1 after only three days in indirect negotiations with the opposition. Ja’afari insisted that there must be no mention of Bashar al-Assad’s future in the discussions.

The return was announced yesterday in a two-paragraph announcement on State news agency SANA.

Pro-Assad Forces & Russia Step Up Attacks on Opposition-Held Northwest

Pro-Assad forces, including Russian warplanes, are stepping up attacks against rebels in northeastern Hama Province and threatening the neighboring, opposition-held Idlib Province in northwest Syria.

Rebels and witnesses reported dozens of airstrikes by Russian jets in the last 48 hours in northeast Hama and southern Idlib. Free Syrian Army factions and the Islamist bloc Hayat Tahrir al-Sham said they are sending reinforcements to regain control of a string of villages in northeast Hama near the town of Rihjan.

The area is supposed to be part of a “de-escalation zone” announced by Russia, Turkey, and Iran this summer. However, the air and ground attacks are being justified on the the pretext that they are all against Hayat Tahrir al-Sham. HTS includes Jabhat Fatah al-Sham, the faction formerly known as Jabhat al-Nusra which was linked to Al Qa’eda until July 2016.

Syrian State news agency SANA cheers this morning, “Army Eradicates al-Nusra in Hama Countryside, Chasing its Remnants towards Idleb”. A regime military spokesman said seven villages had been taken.

Islamic State fighters have also been attacking HTS and rebels in eastern Hama Province. Pro-opposition activists says the assaults by ISIS, which has been retreating elsewhere in Syria, have been enabled by regime support.

The pro-Assad offensive’s first strategic goal is to retake Abu al-Dhour military airport, one of the largest in the north of the country. The complex was heavily bombed on Sunday.

Rebels took almost all of Idlib Province in 2015. More than two million Syrians who remain in the country are estimated to live in the territory.

Turkey has moved forces into Idlib, in part to establish a frontline with the Syrian Kurdish canton of Afrin. Ankara has maintained silence so far on the pro-Assad attacks.

    • Since the Assad regime has repeatedly refused permission for movement of the sick to hospitals only about 30 minutes away, the answer would be yes.

    • Wow – so disingenuous – Like asking, is there any evidence of Assad’s Mukhaberatis actually beating and torturing a dissenter in an Assad dungeon? When we know for a fact that tens of thousands have been killed over 60 years of fascist rule.

      • How is it disingenuous?

        The question is very clear, discreet and has nothing to do with the separate issues you mention, yet no-one provides a link or even references the source of these claims which are handed down as received wisdom here …

  1. Agit-prop déjà vu — North Korean mobile [cartoon] bio-weapons labs spotted hiding in plain sight by vigilant WaPo watchdogs:
    https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/microbes-by-the-ton-officials-see-weapons-threat-as-north-korea-gains-biotech-expertise/2017/12/10/9b9d5f9e-d5f0-11e7-95bf-df7c19270879_story.html

    Summary: according to the racist “free press” of Exceptionalistan, which is evidently fed these stories verbatim by the Pentagovernment’s Dept of Mindbending, it is outrageous and impermissible for these insubmissive slant-eyes to have biotech, or any other technology for that matter, as it can only cause headaches for the Yanki aggressors planning to attack their nation.

    This is similar to the “argument” that hedgehogs should not be allowed to have spikes as these are a threat to a wolf’s right to peaceful digestion of his meals without having anything nasty lodged in his gums or gullet.

    As per usual with these NATO-sponsored warmonglers, the principle of imperialist impunity is the highest law and all options are on the table, except for non-aggression.

    • Meantime, Putin continues casually eating Flynn’s lunch — Rosatom today signed up Egypt as a client for 4.8GWe of Nuclear Power Plant at Dabaa, same as the Akkuyu project about to start construction in Turkey, also 2GWe is on order in Jordan at Amra and another 2GWe currently under construction at Iran’s Bushehr facility, with an option for a further half dozen in the near future:
      http://www.world-nuclear-news.org/NN-Notice-to-proceed-contracts-signed-for-El-Dabaa-1112178.html

      That’s a total of 18 VVER reactors at $5 billion a pop, with each GWe in capacity also generating a tasty 240kg of “waste” plutonium-239 annually, or 30 warheads’ worth, as a mere 8kg of the refined stuff makes for a nice neat “package”.

      And just in time too, as the warmonglerish NeoCon Brain-Bugs of Yankistan have by their continual breaches brought the NNPT to the point of implosion:
      http://nationalinterest.org/feature/crossroads-why-the-nuclear-nonproliferation-treaty-could-23576

      Therefore all self-respecting countries must urgently follow the wise N.Korean model and develop nuclear weapons to deter the deranged Yanki rapists from their lustful dreams of invasion and/or régime-change with impunity.

      • whatever dog boy. Disappointed that you have no points to make up or counter the murdering of children? Great post above, as you look to fill the world with more nukes. While Russia continues to break the NNPT with its medium range ballistic missiles. Your so full of dishonesty its astounding.

        • The NNPT has nothing to do with cruise missiles, no matter what their range, so sadly you cannot pin its destruction on Russia … that is all down to the intellectually bone-idle Yanki addiction to war of aggression in a f[l]ailing effort to compensate for its unrelenting relative economic decline.

          • However, all mid-sized countries having their own nuclear deterrent will greatly accelerate the salutary deflation of the imperialist centre, as Yankistan will no longer be in a position to bully and blackmail them into paying the imperial tribute upon which it relies to artificially subsidise its war-junkie economy [cf. fall of Roman Empire].

            This will advance the inevitable day of reckoning a.k.a. Civil War Mk.II leading into the Socialist Revolution, in Yankistan and worldwide, which is precisely why the current Yankistani ruling class is so desperate to prevent it.

            Even if this results in another nuclear war or two, it will have been well worth it to smash the yoke of capitalist domination and injustice from about the neck of humanity.

            Beat that for honesty!

            • I’ve got no problem with trolling, but when it’s to support nuclear war, might be time to have a little think about the value….

              #JustSaying

              • It’s not trolling and I have thought about the value, thanks.

                As you well know, I am not advocating a nuclear war of aggression, which only serial recidivist warcriminal Yankistan is likely to start, merely pointing out that it must be effectively deterred or commensurately punished if it foolishly does so.

              • “Even if this results in another nuclear war or two, it will have been well worth it.”

                I take it back about trolling. This is even worse than trolling when someone claims it is a considered evaluation. “Morally bankrupt” is too kind a summary.

              • I leave it to you whether you think advocacy of the deaths of millions of people and destruction of the planet is acceptable trolling.

                A genuine belief in the advocacy of the deaths of millions of people and destruction of the planet is morally bankrupt.

                I trust you will now comprehend this — and will not feign a continued lack of comprehension for the sake of your further trolling (or morally bankrupt belief).

              • Naturally I have never advocated for the deaths of millions of people and destruction of the planet, that’s just how Yanki supremacist extremists in false alarm construe the prospect of any nation exercising it perfect legal right to defend itself from Yanki [nuclear] aggression using the equivalent tools.

                I think the essential difference between us is that I genuinely want to stop all war to spare the planet and people on it, whereas Yanki imperialist partisans are so brainwashed into reflexive “patriotism” that they wish for Yankistan to triumph in every war of aggression it launches, even if that costs half the planet, so long as it’s the other half from where they’re at.

                My counter to that immoral position is, seeing that Yankistan, deranged as it currently is by the state-imposed religion of Exceptionalism, is probably going to atomically wreck half the planet anyhow in its futile efforts to maintain the Empire, that we all [that’s everyone outside the 1% Yanki ruling class] have a moral responsibility to ensure it does not get away with this ultimate crime but is itself politically destroyed and permanently disarmed in the process, i.e. via a thorough-going Socialist Revolution.

                Of course it would be better by far that the World Revolution occur earlier, thus preventing any atomic exchanges altogether, which is why I say:

                Everyone has a part to play … Rome wasn’t burnt in a day!

                [Where everyone includes a lot of reasonable working class people in Yankistan would surely support the sentiment.]

              • Your exact words: “Even if this results in another nuclear war or two, it will have been well worth it.”

              • Yes, we’ve already had one nuclear war, a rather unilateral affair which was really just racist Yankistan vengefully testing its atomic weapons on Jap civilians while motivating Stalin to rapidly produce his own, but in official Yanki lore this blatant warcrime is considered perfectly justified, not on any moral grounds but simply by stating the expediency that it theoretically saved the lives of some number of Yanki combatants, who by the exceptionalists are considered real people whereas the civilians of enemy nations are not.

                My contention is that even if let’s say 100 times as much nuclear destruction as then [i.e. some 25 million dead] has to now be suffered, due to warcriminal Yankistan kicking it off, then it will still be worth it if this results in this deranged entity being permanently cancelled out as the premier risk to human life on the planet.

                Though obviously neither the best nor my preferred option, in the long run this disaster will still be cheaper in human life than the cost of allowing the filthy Yanki bourgeoisie to indefinitely continue the run-amok spree of warcriminal aggression it has enjoyed since WW2 simply in order to satisfy its own bottomless greed and vanity.

                How can you not see this?

              • “[If there is] 100 times as much nuclear destruction as [in 1945]…some 25 million dead…it will still be worth it.”

                I’ll let you have the final word with this.

              • Barbar: “As no-one seems able to articulate exactly how my position is “morally bankrupt”….” — To advocate a world where each petty dictator has a finger on a red button ready to annihilate a mass of humanity is a morally bankrupt position. And also intellectually bankrupt as those very nations that you wish to develop nuclear bombs and start a nuclear war or two, except for NK, are certifiably capitalist countries. So your lament that capitalism is a yoke on humanity rings pretty hollow when you advocate nuclear bombs for petty-capitalists and capitalists wanna-be (like Russia). I don’t think you even understand what capitalism is, as your ideological mind has lost its ability to make discovery of the objective truth anymore.

              • 1. “To advocate a world where each petty dictator has a finger on a red button ready to annihilate a mass of humanity is a morally bankrupt position.” — So wait, you oppose petty dictators being nuclear-armed, which by omission implies you have no problem with major dictators being so equipped? Forgive me if I find your so-called “morals” confusing, but exactly what principle are you expounding here … that size matters?

                Also, I never stipulated that they had to be dictators, just that every nation of let’s say >=10 million population should have at least 50 nukes ready to fly on a hair-trigger, in order to spread the tremendous benefits of nuclear deterrence [as preached by Yankistan] that much more widely. What’s good for the goose is also good for the gander, no?

                2. “And also intellectually bankrupt as those very nations that you wish to develop nuclear bombs and start a nuclear war or two, except for NK, are certifiably capitalist countries.” — Naturally I never said I want any nation to start any nuclear war at all, quite the opposite in fact. Reading comprehension in evidently not your forte. Also it doesn’t matter if they are currently capitalist countries, as the inhabitants thereof will in any case benefit from living in nations not liable to being invaded or blackmailed by Yankistan or other marauders, then once the World Revolution happens they can easily take over the government and custody of the nukes for themselves.

                3. “So your lament that capitalism is a yoke on humanity” — Calm down, it’s actually just a statement of fact.

                4. “I don’t think you even understand what capitalism is, as your ideological mind has lost its ability to make discovery of the objective truth anymore.” — Very good, Dr. Kazemi!

            • Thank you for your honesty that apparently nuclear war is no biggie compared to a commies obsessively deluded anti-American goals. You would support satan himself as long as he shared your obsessive anti-American views. Been sure of that one for a while though it is nice to have as close as I’ll ever get to official confirmation. Anybody not sure about your absolute moral bankruptcy should read the above. What a bitter little person. You live in a dreamworld of your own making and continuously use dubious sources who shares your axe to grind to enhance your delusions.

              • 1. My goals are not anti-American as I deeply respect and admire the exceptional nation of Brazil. As you well know I oppose the warcriminal capitalist ruling class of Yankistan, and thereafter the rest of the world, precisely because by their stupid hypocrisy and insatiable greed they are driving the planet and/or population thereon to destruction.

                2. Prey explain how you make out that my position is morally bankrupt?

                3. Are you trying to insinuate that you oppose the use of nuclear weapons?

              • 1. Get over yourself. Your joke about America referring to Brazil wasn’t funny or clever the first billion times you tried it. The rest of that reads like the typical leftist extremist diatribe I’d expect from you. Very tedious. America America America. Get over it.

                2.Saying nuclear war could be “well worth it” is so twisted and disgusting. I knew you had serious issues, but advocating something that could mean the apocalypse because you think they might help you achieve your leftist extremist( In your case ‘extremist’ might be too mild of a term) goals is beyond sick. Acting like it would be alright if billions perished in nuclear war would probably be beyond the textbook definition of morally bankrupt. I mean I knew you supported all manner of horrific regimes that engage in mass murder, torture, and terrorism. This goes beyond that.

                3.Who the hell in their right mind doesn’t oppose nuclear war? There are no winners in nuclear war. Period. The human race loses. You’re even more extreme and obsessed than I had imagined.

              • Dear Kevin,

                1. Joke?? What made you think it was a joke? Anyhow, I never talk about “America America America” and am always careful to distinguish the serial recidivist warcriminal political entity best known as Yankistan from the geographical continent of America.

                2. I am proposing to make the [under Yanki capitalist misleadership] practically inevitable nuclear war winnable for those who do not initiate it, i.e. the long-suffering working class in all countries. How you construe this as moral bankruptcy remains a mystery to me, despite your scandalised remonstrations, which I suspect really arise from the for you novel thought that your team might conceivably end up losing irretrievably.

                3. How about answering my question instead of trying, Rumpsfeld-style, to replace it with one which suits you better?

              • I’m done with you. It’s just too much stupidity. You seem to not be able to comprehend your own posts and often seem to need them explained to you. LOL. Scott is right. You’re just trolling now seeking attention or something. Don’t know or care. Not going to waste my breath on a communist zealot. You’re about the most bitter individual I’ve ever seen. Just way too much bullshit for me.

              • Well, I’m genuinely sorry you feel that way, Kevin.

                In any case thanks for being a good sport in the exchanges we did have and farewell.

            • Barbar: “Yanki rapists from their lustful dreams of invasion and/or régime-change with impunity.” — an illegal non-democratic regime needs to be changed. That is a fact of human civilization, and there is little that you can argue against that.

            • Barbar: “Yankistan will no longer be in a position to bully and blackmail them into paying the imperial tribute upon which it relies to artificially subsidise its war-junkie economy” — please explain to me how this works. How does Yankistan blackmail them to pay an imperial tribute? I want numbers and I want facts Barbar. If you don’t have them, then please stop posting unrelated junk in favor of international fascism.

            • and when all of these things you say come true, no one will fight over anything? except we will all have nukes.. Its a great future your preach

      • Lol – Iran had announced back in the 1990s that it will soon be constructing 30 nuclear power plants. Now 27 years later, they have signed a contract for the 2nd plant? They must have lost a lot of money on the first plant, which sits on top of oil fields that can produce a lot more power a lot more cheaply. But you still deny that Iran wants nuclear weapons. Is nihilism the only thing that you have learnt from Marxism?

        • 1. “Lol – Iran had announced back in the 1990s that it will soon be constructing 30 nuclear power plants. Now 27 years later, they have signed a contract for the 2nd plant?” — Wrong, the 2GWe of capacity currently under construction at Bushehr consists of what will be the second and third large commercial nuclear power reactors operating in Iran, with the following 6 to be finished around 2030. Compared to several of their neighbours this is actually great progress — Egypt for example has been planning its NPP project since ~1964 and only signed the go-ahead contract the day before yesterday whereas Israel has been at it even longer and still has neither a nuclear power nor desalination plant to show for its efforts [i.e. pure lies].

          2. “They must have lost a lot of money on the first plant, which sits on top of oil fields that can produce a lot more power a lot more cheaply.” — Wrong, in general it is a terrible waste of scarce natural resources to burn oil for base-load power, not to mention being unsustainable and destructive of the environment. Also, burning nuclear fuel for reliable high-duty power makes sound economic sense for Iran, encouraging industrial development by turning the petroleum into products instead of just selling the crude cheaply, so don’t worry, they evidently aim to more than recoup any short-term costs incurred.

          3. “But you still deny that Iran wants nuclear weapons.” — Not sure why this outburst apropos of nothing just occurred [ https://memegenerator.net/img/instances/56190828/jaccuse.jpg ] but in any case no lesser lights than the noted NeoCon Brain-Bugs Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz and Cheney have all recommended a large-scale nuclear power program for Iran:
          http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/rearvision/how-the-united-states-helped-iran-set-up-its-nuclear-program/6622194

          Naturally, however, if Iran feels it needs nuclear weapons to deter the threatened aggression of warcriminal predators, it would be perfectly entitled to develop and deploy them after exiting any relevant international treaties, as North Korea has wisely and legally done.

          4. Why would you think nihilism has anything to do with Marxism?

    • You mean the guy who threw his mentor and husband to his aunt to the dogs in front of a crowd should have his finger on the red button to launch ICBMs to populous US cities, at any time and without notice? How about if you lived in SF instead of Dublin and pondered a missile coming your way? Since NATO warmongers and imperialists are colonizing and devouring the world without hesitation and protest, and that is what you think is happening, then I am sure you will not object if the US executes a massive attack on NK and decapitates its leader and his henchmen? After all, that is what you believe happens routinely under the regime of imperialism.

      • 1. “You mean the guy who threw his mentor and husband to his aunt to the dogs in front of a crowd should have his finger on the red button to launch ICBMs to populous US cities, at any time and without notice?” — No, and you cannot reduce the national interests of a society of 25 million people to “a guy” … this is not Disney Cartoon World we are discussing. The fact remains that under international law DPRK is perfectly entitled to deter aggression and/or defend itself with nuclear weapons if necessary, whether that suits the Great Satan or not. Do not aggress and you won’t have to get your delicate panties all bunched up about any sort of retaliation, that’s the pretty simple rule.

        2. “How about if you lived in SF instead of Dublin and pondered a missile coming your way?” — LOL, I am not an anti-social criminal who compulsively attacks and rapes/murders/robs his neighbours, therefore need not worry about blowback … you should try this sometime! It’s surprisingly liberating!

        3. “NATO warmongers and imperialists are colonizing and devouring the world without hesitation and protest, and that is what you think is happening … under the regime of imperialism” — LOL, no, much as you & they’d like it to be so easy, they are persistently losing with their warcriminal efforts, even as the external opposition thereto stiffens and their domestic populations are increasingly becoming wise to their ‘divide et impera’ tricks. The non-conquests of Afghanistan and Iraq after 15 or 17 years of butchery eloquently attest to the fact that the Yanki imperialist game is no longer worth the expended candle, at which point the homeless HomeLander Stimmvieh living from hand to mouth begin to think twice and even complain that they have been short-changed. Why do you think TPTB are in such a sweat to censor and close down all political dissent on the internet? Precisely because the population, and most particularly the youth, is rapidly running outside of their usual MSM mind-control channels, mainly in the one direction which spells their certain doom as the politically dominant class … https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2017/11/07/soci-n07.html

        4. “then I am sure you will not object if the US executes a massive attack on NK and decapitates its leader and his henchmen” — Firstly, one has to be politically infantile or wantonly blinded with jingoistic propaganda to imagine that the war would end there, but you are also wrong about me, as I would in principle object and wish Yankistan another soul-crushing defeat if it foolishly launches any such warcriminal aggression. In short, Yankistan has no right to determine who leads other countries, much as it throws tantrums to try and arrogate this prerogative to itself. A proper remorseless spanking will in that case calm its demented spirits, at least until the next remedial beating comes due.

    • You are a sick individual Barbar. You brilliantly have given us the reason why communism had to be defeated. Because we do not want sickos to rule this world, whether it be Assad or Putin or Kim or Khamenei. As long as there are people like you around, those “recidivist Yankistanis” will be ruling to your chagrin, because any person even nary of a brain will be too scared of the people you advocate of coming to power. It is people like you who cause those “recidivist Yankistanis” to remain in power – as the alternative is far far worse.

      • 1. “You are a sick individual Barbar.” — Oh, really? That’s a rather wide diagnosis, Dr. Kazemi, but prey elucidate in detail how you arrived at it.

        2. “the people you advocate of coming to power” — Where have I advocated for people like Assad, Putin, Kim or Khamenei coming to power?

        3. Nary does not mean what you think it does and as for warcriminal Yankistan ruling the world, come on, not even you yourself believe this antiquated hype. The reality is that one way or another Yankistanis are going to get reacquainted with working hard and living frugally, my friend.

        4. “It is people like you who cause those “recidivist Yankistanis” to remain in power” — Wow, I am evidently having more of an effect than I had previously imagined! Does this mean that if I stop being myself they shall be deposed? In that case, I may even try it for a week … to test your magical thinking 😀

    • Barbar: “The reality is that one way or another Yankistanis are going to get reacquainted with working hard and living frugally, my friend.” — Ahhh … so here we have come to the crux of the matter. What bugs our troller friend are those chauffeured Mercedes Benz limos he sees in the streets taking the rich people to their positions and functions. In other words, the creed of a loser and a failure. You are not bugged by let’s say African hunger and disease, or by ethnic cleansing in Syria and Myanmar — what bugs you is the guy who made it rich in the capitalist world. The creed of a LOSER. I bet you were some union organizer in your better days, dreaming of the day that the so-called ‘workers’ (“to them according to their needs”) will take over the globe and dispose of the rich and institute the “dictatorship of the proletariat”.

      If it takes to have a rich class to get our freedom and liberties, then so be it Barbar. If liberal democracy competitive-capitalism is the only place where my rights are guaranteed, then so be it. It will certainly not be guaranteed under your system of political and economic slavery, run by a chosen few nomenclatura ideologues like yourself. I for one have better things to do than stand around and watch the rich being ferried around in expensive cars and consume myself with pity, victimhood, and envy. And you should know this – in the USA, 95% of the taxes are paid by the richest 25% of the population. In essence, the other 75% (you among them) are being carried by the rich. Now go and institute your workers paradise and send us back to a world of next to zero production and despondency, where we are all equally poor and destitute (except for the select few with the correct ideology which clearly includes you). And another thing you should know – today, capitalist Canada spends 120x times more per capita on healthcare than Russia does. Yes, that is 120x more. Now go figure – or better yet, enroll for Economics 101 at the nearest university.

      • The fact that the rapacious [class-]warcriminal Yankistani system is designed to continually impoverish the vast majority of its citizens subjects has nothing to do with me. My point, which apparently flew over your head, is that whether or not Yankistan launches more futile wars of aggression, it cannot make them pay off so, without surplus RoI to bribe the Stimmvieh, this internal trend will not be reversed, just as externally its relative economic decline is inescapable.

        The only way for the Yankistani HomeLanders to break out of this vicious political spiral whereby they persistently lose out, is to represent themselves as a class with its own interests diametrically opposed to those of the exploiters, i.e. to carry out a Socialist Revolution, and many are waking up to that reality.

        Which you can like or lump, it is entirely immaterial to me.
