Because this war's not about defending Kurds, it's about oil again. If
socialists can't recognize a predatory war waged by their own government,
they'd better sit down and study a little harder. The entire world knows
about oil; that's why no one likes it, but won't say a word. Backing this
or pretending it's not there is as sure a way to destroy the socialist
movement as the Second International's sections' attitude toward WWI.

And we don't have to figure out who to support in Kurdistan in order to
figure out that a replay of Bush's war isn't what we want and isn't what
we're going to see anyway.
