Chris, what are you trying to do? Get back at Adolfo for tearing apart your
arguments? If so, it's not working. What Adolfo says makes sense. Examine
the situation--and even if you think Calero is an innocent victim of the US
government and Fujimori--"Quispe"'s guilt comes through here in implicating
Calero as a member of the "MPP-USA" and an "activist" and "comrade" twenty
days before his arrest.

And yet you continue to absolve "Quispe" and condemn Adolfo. "Quispe" can
say anything, do anything, get Calero arrested in the first place, and you
say nothing. Yet when Adolfo asks thoughtful questions and analyzes the
situation, as well as exposing "Quispe"'s fingering of Calero, you condemn him.

"Quispe" does not belong at the head of any MPP. Neither do the bunch of
capitulators and traitors in Europe. "Quispe", in declaring himself "the
MPP", does not bring himself any closer in reality to the PCP. It is the Sol
Peru Committees like those in London and Belgium who, much more than the
false "MPP"s, represent the revolutionary line of the PCP.

It is not, as you claim, a "credibility war" between the MPP's and
Sol-Peru's. It is a matter of capitulation and betrayal by the false "MPPs".
It is a matter of upholding ideology and the revolutionary line by the

Declaring oneself to be an "MPP" does not, alas, make it so. Nor does it
make one a representative of the PCP.
