Fine, he's a very interesting chap to agree with. I have a high esteem of his
opinions... =)

Neither all of them, nor exactly so. Some of the material that has been
reaching this list recently give a different image of, at least, Kabila. The
problem is that imperialism does not even accept neo-liberalized national
bourgeois establishments to remain "national". They need them to become fully
colonial, to deprive them of any shred of defensive reflexes. Anything less is
unacceptable for them, and this is an idea that perspirates directly from
Mark's positions. This is why I don't understand him nor, so it seems, you.
There is a difference with the Turkish or Argentinean case. You say:

If a government in Argentina  does not close deal with eager imperialist mining
investors, or tries to overwit them by taking their money not paying back the
way they want, if a government such as that appears in Argentina, I will simply
put all my energy in pushing this government forward, not in attacking it.
Imperialists will certainly speak the opposite language. Such is life...
