Look I'm glad that Panitch came out against the war. He's not the only
concerned social democrat to do so and his denunciations of US imperialism
ring a little hollow since they are uttered in the same breath as vacuous
twaddle about democrtatic renewal of the US state (!). If  Rebuilding the
Left is a revolutionary and non-sectarian socialist current, then I'm all
for it. If not then it too is bullshit.
