Syria: Carry-On 'Stop the War'!

Corny Carryings-On of Stop War Coalition
Bring on the Mustard Gas Comrades!
A CRACK-POT Coalition of 'Stop the War' devotees last night ran into opposition from what the Huffington Post described as 'an enraged Syrian refugee' Hassan Akkad, who accused 'Stop the War' of trying to shut him up. 
Mr. Akkad said that he shouted 'Assad is our enemy', when he was appalled by the absence of 'a single placard or slogan' condemning the Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad or indeed his Russian backers.
The highly hypocritical 'Stop the War Coalition' these days makes Donald Trump look like an enlightened Scrooge following his conversion by Little Tim, the youngest son of Bob Cratchit, in 'A Christmas Carol' by Charles Dickens.
Not since the Soviet Union in the last century served to make Capitalism, by comparison, seem positively benevolent has a political movement behaved in such a barmy way as the 'Stop the War Coalition'.
Trump commanded the missile bombing of an Assad regime air base following a nerve gas attack last Tuesday killed many civilians including 30 children.
The Stop the War Coalition is now being accused of double standards owing to its silence about the Russian interventions which helped to prop-up the Assad regime.
Last night, the 'Stop The War Coalition' was challenged on social media for choosing to demonstrate outside Downing Street as opposed to an international embassy such as the United States, Russia or Syria.
Twitter user Josh The Duke said:  'Stop the war coalition should be protesting outside Russian Embassy - not Downing Street.'
Rohullah Yakobi added:  'Stop the War Coalition to hold a demo about Syria. No, it isn't to condemn Assad's atrocities.' 
The Stop The War Coalition issued the Newsletter yesterday, which we publish below:

Stop the War Newsletter - 7 April 2017

London Emergency Protest Tonight Downing Street 5-7pmThe Stop the War Coalition​ condemn​s Donald Trump's decision to launch attacks against Syrian targets. This action will only increase the level of killing in Syria, and inflame the terrible war that has already caused untold misery for the people of the country.

​​This is the worst possible way to respond to the indefensible attack at Khan Sheikhun. As well as ​deepening​ the tragedy of the Syrian people, ​this utterly​ irresponsible act ​threatens to widen the war and lead the West into military confrontation with Russia. ​

​It is shameful that​ Theresa May​ has rushed to support this act by the most xenophobic and reactionary US president in history. ​

​Stop the War calls for protests today against th​is​ or any further attacks and against British support or participation. The protest in London will take place today at​ Downing Street​ from 5 to 7pm.
