This is impossible confusion. I have no idea where Yoshie gets her ideas 
from. Wallowing around in postmodernist journals? Monthly Review published 
a book recently detailing the capitalist transformation of China. Nobody 
ever believed that capitalism was ever abolished in Iran, least of all the 
mullahs that run the country. Cuba is understood by 90 percent of Marxists 
worldwide and even more importantly by the class enemy to be a country that 
overthrew capitalism.

Just what Iran needs. Pinkerton goons with a vagina.
