   I don't know if and to what extent this happened, but as with the US siding 
with the Chinese forces opposed against the Japanese conquest of China, it 
was, as you said:

  They did it for their own purposes.

  Well, reminds me of the word, I think by Lenin, to give support like the rope 
supports the hanged. 

  Anyway, one thing is to maneuver within this inter-imperialist war for 
redivision of the world, and the other is to use this as a pretext for giving 
general political support for the imperialist war effort, as the 
socialdemocratic and stalinist misleaders of the working class movement did 
and still do, reflected in this forum most strongly from Paddy Apling as the 
voice from the past.
