[ Presenting plain-text part of multi-format email ] mr friedman is sustaining well the current spin, self massaging if you will, as he echos the bushies contention that the iraqi convulsion is a response to our success.he points in a silly way to the absence of political theory or dogma underpinning the resistance in iraq. historic struggles against foreign occupation were and are invariably carried out by nationalist movements, not a particular political theory or philosophy that mr friedman could comfortably recognize. simply, the overarching aim is to throw out the occupier. in order to not distract from the central focus: END THE OCCUPATION, political theory need not be expressed. struggles of socio-political theories and movements occur subsequent to that. one can point to china as an example where the struggles of two divergent socio-political philosophies, communists and kuomitang, were suspended in order to work in concert to fight japanese dominance. oh i seem to remember our aiding stalin roll back nazi occupation... get real tom. tony _______________________________________________ Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq.
