I feel Nestor has made an excellent summing up of the priorities for 
communists in any country - and very specifically in its implied 
criticism of so much of debate among comrades in the imperialist 
coutnries, often so ready to openly criticise actions and policies of 
communists and socialists in countries other than their own.

I would make certain exemptions from that general criticism - firstly 
- the right of comrades in countries in the sphere of operation of 
each imperialist country to criticise comrades in the "home" 
imperialism - and secondly, conversely, the duty of comrades in the 
imperialist countries to be ready with support and, if they are privy 
to real knowledge of that country, comradely advice to those in 
countries in the sphere of operation of "their" imperialism.

Comradely greetings,
