136 [lbo-talk] Platypus: what we are, what we do, and why -- rank: 929
It is telling, Chris, that in enumerating the protagonists of this "Islamist terrorist conspiracy" you reproduce a laundry-list of alliances that is entirely a figment of the imperialist imaginary.

137 [lbo-talk] Platypus: what we are, what we do, and why -- rank: 773

138 [lbo-talk] US Civil War (was Platypus etc) -- rank: 773
"Some sort of conflict" is a lot broader than "bloody war." ----- Original Message ---- From: James Heartfield <Heartfield at blueyonder.co.uk> But that is a false opposition. Nothing happens by economics alone. There would have had to have been some kind of conflict for the slaveowners to have been forced ...

Chris C. writes: 'James Heartfield wrote about the problem of the "mirror image" of anti-imperialism being the anti-Islam sentiments one finds in fears of Islamist terrorism. While the threat can and is exaggerated, it does exist... Does this mean that the U.S. invasion and occupation of Afghanistan was ...

146 [lbo-talk] Platypus: what we are, what we do, and why -- rank: 773
I think when Cutrone says "there is no real potential progressive 'anti-imperialist' politics that provides an actual emancipatory alternative to U.S. policy," he's probably thinking of the fact that there is really no progressive, democratic left to speak of in the places currently dealing with US aggression - Iraq ...
