What is the real EFFECT of a Website like Z?  It is to achieve the reputation
for militancy and then to undermine resistance to the sharpest acts of
Imperialism.

Thus the patron saint of Z, Noam Chomsky, during the bombing of Yugoslavia
went on Z and the leftish Pacifica Radio station and said the bombing was bad
because it gave the monstrous Serbs the eexcuse and reason to carry out even
more atrocities against Albanians.  A lie!  A lie uttered without even saying
the bombing  was a war crime. If you doubt me, you can listen to it on
Pacifica, before it gets pulled.

Go to  http://www.commondreams.org/kosovo/moreviews.htm  That is the page on
the Common Dreams website called "Kosovo Crisis: More Views" Then do a word
search for Chomsky.  That will take you to a file entitled "Noam Chomsky
Discusses NATO Bombing."   Click on that - you will need to have Real Player
installed, to hear it.

Keep in mind, this station potentially reaches 500,000 - this is the very
popular Goodman show, listened to by hoards of leftish people.  Ask
yousrself: after hearing and believing Chomsky's crap, would you want to
organize aganst the bombing? Or wouldn't you say you had more important stuff
to do? That this was a fight between monsters?

And what you have just heard on Pacifica is the same thing Chomsky and Albert
and Shalom and Said said on Z.  So the bones that are tossed to radicalism at
Z  - opposition to corporations, love of ecology, whatever - are used in a
very important practical sense  to create credibility which then allows Z to
UNDERMINE THOSE IN THE IMPERIALIST COUNTRIES WHO WANT TO ORGANIZE OPPOSITION
TO THE REAL LIVING CRIMES OF IMPERIALISM.

Sorry for the caps.  It makes me scream.  By pushing this line of "the
bombing has unleashed the monstrous serbs and hence it is bad" Chomsky and
the others at Z were far more harmful than the mainstream media precisely
because no leftist would believe the mainstream media's justification for war
- but when a Chomsky (or on a smaller scale, a Chomsky-groupie like Albert)
says this same stuff it has credibility.
