Radical Moslems find allies in Marxists

While so many are reveling in the opportunity to pillory Pat Robertson for suggesting that a Marxist almost-dictator in South America might be a threat the US, WorldNetDaily reports that some Marxist organizations are making no bones about which side they're on...

Bringing together anarchists, Marxists and radical Muslims, new coalitions of Americans and Brits are joining forces not only to express opposition to the U.S. presence in Iraq but in some cases to urge outright support for the insurgents there killing GIs on a nearly daily basis.

Writing in a recent edition of the International Socialist Review, Paul D'Amato argues, "If the war is one of imperialist conquest, and the resistance opposes that conquest, then by definition the Iraqi resistance is a legitimate war of national liberation."

D'Amato says that to deny support for the resistance is synonymous with rejecting national independence for Iraq.

Odd that this didn't get anywhere near the attention that Pat Robertson did. I wonder why? Hmmmm.

Pat Robertson didn't suggest that "that a Marxist almost-dictator in South America might be a threat the US" He suggested that the man be murdered. Almost-dictator is a weasel-word term. The man was democratically elected, whether US Christian billionaires like him or not. And no matter how much oil he has.

Killing and stealing. Yeah, you folks are Christlike.

Robertson did say that Chavez is a threat. Then he suggested that a solution that would avoid bloodshed later on, was for the government to assassinate him. Liberals are whining about soldiers dying in Iraq, when they are there to prevent even more bloodshed of the Iraqi civilians. You Libs need to make up your mind. You seem to not care at all about Iraqi civilians who were slaughtered by Saddam and now by the resistance, but get in a tizzy when someone suggests killing a Saddam wanna-be. Which is it?
