Phil interviews Diana Johnstone about an insulting letter criticizing Syria Solidarity activists and anti-imperialist researchers, which was signed by Noam Chomsky.

Johnstone slams the idea that Western so-called "humanitarian interventions" produce Western-style democracy. Rather, they produce nothing but chaos and disaster for the people of the targeted countries.

One of the letter authors, Gilbert Achcar, is of-course someone who finds "left-wing" justifications for U.S. regime-change. He gained infamy for advocating the removal of Ghadafi during the US/NATO military intervention in 2011, and supporting the NATO "no-fly zone." In the case of Syria, Johnstone observes that it has a secular government motivated by Arab nationalism, which has attracted the hostility of both the US and Israel.

The US coalition has slapped several sanctions on Syria, which are seriously harming the Syrian people. This is a humanitarian crisis that "human rights" campaigners have failed to address, or even mention. If you are not calling for an end to sanctions, you have no human rights credentials, period.
