What this article doe not mention is that there are various Iraqi
communist groups -- not just *the* "Iraqi communists". The one
that he refers to seems to ascribe to the IS version of "socialism" .
There is also the Worker-communist Party of Iraq, who is always
out in force at Toronto demonstrations.They seem not to take such
a mushy position on imperialism.
