Good news! The Stop the War mob are finally organising to protest about the events in Syria.

Bad news! It's not the gassing of kids they're protesting but the US airstrikes in retaliation for it.

Stop the War's message can therefore be summed up as "stop stopping people gassing kids". Which is a great look.

Nearly 10 o' clock and no official reaction from Corbyn's office yet.

Wonder what's keeping him?

Indeed. Siding with dictators gassing their own civilians has never bothered him before, just ask Saddam. Well, you could if he wasn't dead.

He clocks off at 5pm, otherwise he would get flexi.

Yeah well they had very good reason not to protest against Assad and Putin, their anti-western and therefore are anti-american which is what STW are, therefore Assad and Putin are natural allies of STW.

Their anti-western what?

It could be their anti-western, a DVD of a Canadian movie about the expansion of the country to Vancouver through legal jurisdiction and peaceful civic compromise.

Isn't an anti-western an eastern?

That's a term that applies to a Russian western, typically featuring a Moscow type going into the wilds of Siberia.

They do actually exist.

Fortunately they have existed without my awareness of them.

They made revisionist Westerns in the Soviet Union starring Communist US singer Dean Reed who defected in the 60s. Central Asians would dressed up as the Injuns while Reed would desert the imperialist US cavalry to lead the Injuns in the revolutionary struggle against their oppressors.

I'm not shocked by this.

An enraged Syrian refugee accused Stop The War of trying to silence him as they protested outside Downing Street against Donald Trump’s air strike.

Hassan Akkad went to the quickly arranged gathering on Friday and said he was appalled by the absence of “a single placard or slogan” condemning Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad.

He said he shouted “that Assad is our enemy”, saying they would not let him address the crowd on their megaphone.

“I’m so livid at how Stop The War Coalition tried their utmost to silence me with their megaphones,” Akkad wrote on Facebook after the Downing Street protest.

“Not a single placard or slogan is condemning Assad. I asked them respectfully to say few words on the megaphone and they said no and tried their best to ignore my presence.
