New imperialist alliances developing in Syria

The political situation in Syria is changing as the remnant forces of the popular uprising retreat under the greater military might of a coalition of imperialist actors. There is an ongoing realignment of the imperialist and reactionary forces involved as each now tries to reposition itself to gain advantage in this new phase (see here, here, here and here). The reality for working class communities in Syria remains catastrophic with many civilians being killed daily. The prospect of a resolution to this crisis remains low, with the likelihood of new conflicts breaking out in the near future.
