Eclectics or Dialectics? Unpacking PSL’s Defense of Racist, Collaborationist Tyrannies

Socialists and War: Two Opposing Trends published by Party for Socialism and Liberation (PSL) is as thin politically as it page-wise. Clocking in at 46 pages, most of the book consists of freely available published material: a reprint from PSL’s newspaper, a Dissident Voice interview with Brian Becker who is the national director of PSL’s […]

Muslim anger and Western domination

In Iraq there is chaos. In Afghanistan there is chaos. In Libya there is chaos. In Syria there is chaos. Wherever the West intervenes, either directly or indirectly, chaos is the result.

Cracks in Libya National Transitional Council

Misrata rebels (rather sensibly) are protesting a decision by the NTC to install a Gaddafi loyalist as head of security in Tripoli, saying if it happens, they will refuse to obey the NTC. My take: civil war is coming to Libya. The NTC isn’t a real coalition, and the stress fractures are already showing. The […]

Polizeros podcast. Libya, Bank of America, fracking and earthquakes

Topics last night included: Triumphalist liberals proclaim mission accomplished in Libya even as battles still continue in Tripoli and the National Transitional Council draws up a constitution for a strict Islamist state under sharia law. And then there’s the problem of 1000x more loose weapons than under Saddam. Libya is nowhere near being stable much […]
