The postive aspects of a "socialist alliance" in Australia notwithstanding,
Proyect hit the nail on the head over the DSP's rather sorry record of
providing a left-cover for "UN Internationalism". Even their sorid
ex-comrades in the pplitically moribund US SWP took a better position than
the DSP on East Timor.

To form an electoral Socialist Alliance is all well and good...but on what
foreign policy? Support for "humanitarian imperialism?"; "Feel-good foreign
policy?". Yuck. I think the DSP ought to get it's house in order before it
starts to pose the question of power...
