Had a great roundtable discussion with some friends about Syria this evening. I get a bit annoyed with those who think that Syrians calling for NATO intervention are betraying the revolution or themselves. I ask them, and any other reader, how they propose Syrians should defend themselves against this regime? I'm genuinely curious, because many anti-imperialists don't seem to be offering solutions to the Syrian people, and yet seem to have a lot to say about what shouldn't be done.

If a government has started to kill its own people and is attacking and repressing entire villages and neighbourhoods, how should the people react? What would be the "right" way forward?
