No you dont get it, the enemy of my enemy is my friend duhhh. If youre not America then youre, like, misunderstood and actually fantastic. Iran is, like, forced into this…
The political standard I’m seeing is colloquially referred to as a “Cruise Missile Leftists” and they’re a plague on the anti-imperialist movement. Good luck. Just don’t expect logic. Expect pedantics and archaic theories along with a dedication to some organization they ascribe to religiously above and beyond any rational humanistic approach to the issue at hand. For instance they’ll blame the Syrian government (who by the way are Baathists, and like Hussein in Iraq were helped to power by the US State department and the CIA… See BBC’s Adam Curtis’ “The Baby and the Baathwater” for more) because they were literally set up to bomb their own cities to rout CIA mercenaries imported from Libya and elsewhere…and the government’s other option? Submit to conquest.
They wouldn’t support Muammar al-Gaddafi because he was a dictator. Yeah one who brought water to the Bedoins and financed ANY African Union country’s development projects on one simple term. Root the corruption… Read Western influence, out of the country’s government. How a person calling themselves a Socialist or Leftist can rationalize the type of crap spewed by the Cruise Missile crowd is beyond me… They implicitly and sometimes openly support NATO for fuck sake! Armchair Marxist and archetypal “Cruiser” Lou Proyect along with his Leftist stock market investment advisor buddy Doug Henwood supported the US invasion of Iraq too. Sick.
And calls to support their pet faction in the politics or underground movement of the country is a no go simply because if that approach is taken the government falls for sure due to internal factionalism and for FUCKING SURE the occupier or new regime will simply… snuff… out… the “Cruiser’s” pets.
