Actually when Paddy wrote "US imperialism is a principal cause of the instability there" I thought he was referring to Iraq, as his post was about Iraq, so the statement was correct; and I thought Louis furious response was misplaced, as he assumed Paddy to be talking about Syria. But then Paddy reacts by affirming that "the principal source of instability in *Syria* lies with US imperialism."

How in the world the principle cause of "instability", whatever that means, in Syria can be the US is unknown. If only the S had given some proper backing to the "unstable" revolutionary uprising it would have been a good thing, but actually the US has been bombing Anyone But Assad for 2 years while enforcing its embargo on anti-aircraft missiles from getting to the FSA - the US is a major source of Assad's "stable" tyranny staying in power.

I never claimed that a communist movement was not needed. I merely argued that the principal source of instability in Syria lies with US imperialism.

This is complete bullshit.
