Louis: "As if raising the slogan "arm the 
resistance" was anything more than empty rhetoric."

Why on earth is that "empty rhetoric"? It is a DIRECT CALL on the U.S. GOVERNMENT and other NATO powers.  It is no more "empty rhetoric" than slogans like "Stop the War" (any war) or "Stop U.S. aid to Israel" or any other demand on the U.S. government. And indeed, since THIS demand jibes with the needs of imperialism, it is far more likely to be heard and met than any of the other demands we're accustomed to raising. Perhaps that should tell you something about its allegedly progressive character.
