Leftists in Afghanistan and Iraq can't understand their leftish colleagues here...

A new leftist poltical grouping has emerged in Afghanistan...
"We looked to the Left in the West and imitated it," says Awad Nasir, one of Iraq's best-known poets and a life-long Communist. "We heard from the United States and Western Europe that being Left meant being anti-American. So we were anti-American. And then we saw Americans coming from the other side of the world to save us from Saddam Hussein - something that our leftist friends and the Soviet Union would never contemplate."

Mustafa Kazemi, spokesman for the new Afghan front, expresses similar sentiments. "Our nation is still facing the menace of obscurantism and terror from Taliban and al Qaeda," he says. "Thus, we are surprised when elements of the Left in the United States and Europe campaign for withdrawal so that our new democracy is left defenseless against its enemies."

Perhaps "leftism" needs to be further subdivided now. The Iraqi and Afghani "Left" resemble what in the past was known as "Progressiveism", while what is left in the west is simply a crude Anti Americansim.

The Left in the West has run out of ideas, courage and morality. I can think of no examples of "left wing" western thought other than the "Euston Manifesto" that shows any sense fo morality or even relationship to how real people think and act. It is time to put the final nail in the coffin; readers should make every effort to laugh the "Left" out of every sphere of public discourse they attempt to enter, since ridicule is the only rational response left today.

Leftists in the West admire only the power over other people that communists/fascists have over their subjects. That's it.
