It had to happen sooner or later. The Socialist Workers Party – the leading force in the British anti-war movement, have been pretty quiet about whether or not they do actually support Saddam. Most of us suspected that when the war started they would internally adopt the position of ‘victory to Saddam’, but in public they would stick to more general ‘Stop the War’ slogans. Now though the truth has sneaked out. In an article entitled: Bury the Bush project in the sands of Iraq, the SWP say that: “In Iraq the only way is to resist the “coalition” troops.”
Editor Chris Harman makes it even clearer: “Together we have opposed the war. And together we should rejoice if Bush, Rumsfeld and Blair meet their Vietnam in the deserts of Iraq.” Of course none of those politicians are actually fighting in the sands of Iraq. Instead it is thousands of largely working class men and women from the US and Britain – whose deaths the SWP scum hope to rejoice at.
