80. I wondered about that, too
.... and read the full article @ .

"Debate Within the Movement The Iraqi Resistance and the Anti-War Movement" was the original title of the article.

"Does this mean the anti-war movement and socialists should uncritically support the Iraqi resistance?" was a question asked in the opening paragraph of the article.

Conclusion of the article:

"It would be a mistake to adopt an uncritical stance towards groups that, while opposed to the imperialist occupation, are tied to reactionary forces in Iraqi society and are opposed to the interests of workers and the poor. A crucial task of the anti-war and labor movements internationally is to provide resources and solidarity to support those activists trying to build workers' organisations opposing the occupation."

What, if any, implications were intended by the title of this thread? Good question.
