Not Anti-War, Just On The Other Side

Anyone remember CND ? The loveable collection of Eighties Sean Penns, spending their time assuring us that the USSR was ‘a happy place. They had flowery meadows, and rainbow skies, and rivers made of chocolate where the children danced and laughed and played with gumdrop smiles’.

All things considered, you’d think these people would recognise that international affairs isn’t their thing, but no: Lefties are nothing if not persistent – much like anthrax spores. If anything, the complete shredding of everything they ever claimed has only made them more shameless. At least when body warmers were fashionable CND made the odd gesture towards an idiotic kind of moral equivalency. Now, they’ve stopped even going that far, to judge by the rock star reception given to the Iranian ambassador at the latest CND freak show.

You can hate the BushChimpler as much as you like, but what Iran is doing counts as disarmament like downing a bottle of Vladivar counts as going on the wagon. There’s simply no way you can embrace Iran and claim to be supporting nuclear disarmament. Now, just as then, when push comes to shove, hatred of the West trumps all else.
