Today America, Tomorrow The World

"The United States deserves to be militarily defeated in Iraq. It should be forced to withdraw from that country. The U.S. is waging a war of aggression, invading and occupying a country that did it no harm and had been no threat, overthrowing its government, killing tens of thousands of its people, including civilians, torturing others, remaining in the country even after overthrowing its government, violating the wishes of most of its people, trying to sell off its oil, and planning to maintain U.S. military bases there for a long time. All this was justified by a campaign of lies about Weapons of Mass Destruction and about ties to terrorism. If international law means anything at all, this is an illegal war. This vile war of aggression should be lost! (I am concentrating on the war in Iraq here, although these arguments would mostly apply also to U.S. intervention in Afghanistan. and its support for the Israeli state against the Palestinians.)"

The preceeding was taken from an essay by a self described anarchist. If you would like to raise your blood pressure and read this entire vacuous dissertation go here. The group promoting this swill is NEFAC (North Eastern Federation of Anarchist Communists) and their site is in English and French (how appropriate). The aims and principles of this inane organization can be found here. Following, are a few of their trite childish slogans: "There will be no revolution without women's liberation. There will be no women's liberation without revolution." "From each according to ability, to each according to need."

These groups always need slogans, the repetition of which keeps them in that hypnotic zombie like state where reason and logic cannot penetrate. Oh well,if they weren't doing this they'd probably be off taking drugs. Then...maybe this is your brain on drugs.

Open Trackback Thursday at The Political Teen.
