Dear KPFA, You guys really

Dear KPFA,
You guys really know where the “Hot Button” issues are. Two things that I'd like to comment on:
Syria and Lebanon. The guest was totally biased and unashamedly promoting the overthrow of the Government of Syria. Folks need to understand that the Assad Government held a referendum for a new constitution in 2011 in which 55% of the Syrian People approved. However; the US and its allies went full steam ahead funding and arming the “Free Syrian Army” with the explicit objective of the overthrow of the Assad Government. The problem is that these rebels are losing. We now see the US and its allies opening up a second front in Lebanon - doubling down again. The problem that I see is that the PNC that calls for the US to overthrow 7 countries in 5 years is being pursued with bipartisan support. We need to ask our Congress Persons to call a halt to promoting and supporting this bloodshed.
Secondly, Norman Solmon needs to run for Governor of California. He is what the Dr. ordered!
