Using that logic, you would have taken the same position as the American
Socialist Party when the U.S. invaded Vietnam. The SP supported the
invasion, declaring that Stalinism was so heinous it was better to support
American imperialism, the lesser of two evils. Did you find support of the
Vietnamese revolution ridiculous as well?
