Lefty placard merchants Stop the War are refusing to campaign for stopping some wars.
The group’s Chris Nineham said that they would steer clear of the Russian Embassy over its atrocities in Syria because “if we have a protest outside the Russian embassy it wouldn’t make a blind bit of difference to Putin and it would also actually increase the hysteria and jingoism that is being whipped up at the moment against Russia.”
Stop the War’s primary aims and objectives are “to stop the war currently declared by the United States and its allies against ‘terrorism’.” So the bombing of hospitals in Aleppo by Russia is all fine and dandy, provided Russia is not acting as an ally of the big bad USA. If it was, of course that would present a real headache for the Corbynistas..
