"General correctness" of that "analysis"??

That's pure Najibullshit. Or cow fart, if you prefer.
I don't know much about the situation in Peru. It may be
that the so-called criticism of the PCP, as a *secondary*
aspect, contains things that are not entirely untrue.
But the "analysis" as such? Never on your life. Even from
here in Sweden, this can be seen.

Perhaps *somewhat* too harsh on J. Ponce. In essence, not far wrong.

Nope. *No* "revolutionary Marxist". Perhaps a person who, while
misled, is not *entirely* insincere.

Sorry, Ponce. Perhaps you haven't followed the discussion that
PROVED "Quispe" IS a spy. Even if so, it would have been the
correct thing for you to *reserve judgment* and NOT state
that "Quispe" IS a "PCP supporter". This what you wrote really STINKS.
"Marxist" it is not. At best, very naive petty-bourgeois thinking.

Once more that "Quispe" support. Once more that stench.

The above paragraph is a very dirty, very nasty one.

I on my part cannot know whether Adolfo opposed certain strikes or
not. But J. Ponce is not very credible.

And the statement that Adolfo "should have returned" to Peru
in 1980? It STINKS. He and others may well have thought, and
>from here, I'd certainly support such a judgement, that Adolfo
would be *more useful* to the just struggle *in London* than
in Peru - this not taking inot account either the question of
whether he *could* have returned at all. True, also probably leading
a more comfortable life there. But to invoke that as an ACCUSATION -
eech, what a creep you are, Ponce. The *main* question is *not* how
*comfortably* people can live in different places. The question
is, where can they make the best contribution.

>3- That he would respect the militants which are fighting in Peru.
>Nevertheless, Olaechea didn't do any of these 3 things.

Ponce offers no proof of this. It has the character of slander.

>1- He is not part of the British working class movement. He said that he is

"Killing" or not, people like Scargill, when all is said and done,
*are* representatives of labour aristocracy. The others mentioned
I don't know.

*Suppose* he exaggerated? (I haven't followed that so closely.
I don't know the facts of these things. I've seen no chest-beating
on the part of Adolfo in the posts I did read on this.) *If* so,
even this would be no "big crime". The "analysis" of Ponce STINKS
here too. In essence, your role in this STINKS too, Hugh.

There are points on which I think Adolfo should be criticized,
in part rather severely too.

But this "Ponce-Rodwell campaign" against him, also to us more distant
observers, cannot but REEK of CIA work.
