Sukant's seriously starting to frighten me. He keeps sending and forwarding me e-mails with long rants against the Americans, the armed forces, just about everybody who isn't Iraqi, really. Remember, the following is not my views.
As people can see from the activities of SLP youth and friends, I am down
with Taimur's words about everyone all for action and no words of charity
Che-Leila and SLP Youth are always stressing the importance of resistance to
imperialism, I hope this is something friends are understanding even more at
the moment. Who the hell in the world, unless the lack humanity, can fail to
support the resistance of the Iraqis?!
The Iraqis have surprised enemy and friends, and half-friends alike with
their heroic resistance at the moment!
Asm Qusar - heroic stuff resistance!
Outskirts of Basra - they cant even get in yet!
Our Arab anti-imperialist patriots have started behind enemy lines and
attacked a command tent in Kuwait - HURRAY TO THE NEW WAVE OF ARAB
RESISTANCE that we have been pointing to ever since the mid 1990s.
Helicopters all over the place are being downed - we remember our Somali
brothers and sisters for bringing down the Black Hawk, we are continuing
Even when the enemy (British and US governments and powers that be) say that
they have 'advanced' beyond Basra and Asm Qusar, it does not mean at all,
and THEY admit this, that they have conquered and pacified the resistance,
ALL Arab people are saying, whatever there former views of President Saddam
Hussein and the Baath government, that Iraq and Baghdad are the centres of
the Arab world, culture, civilisation right now, and that we will support
the resistance 100%. Not only is Iraq the centre of the Arab resistance but
also of the world resistance!
Long Live Saddam Hussein, commander-in-chief of the Iraqi resistance, and I
MEAN LITERALLY MEAN 'Long Live Saddam', whatever our differences, he is the
personification of the resistance in Iraq. If Saddam goes, the Iraqi people
will fight even harder, and many new popular resistance leaders will rise
from the Iraqi people.
I would love people to discuss criticise me if they wish, let your views
stand up in the context of this great battle between barbarism of the
imperialists and the humanity of the resistance.
Peoples of the world, especially the youth, increase the resistance to war!
Long live the Iraqi and Arab war of anti-imperialist liberation!
"Man's dearest possession is life, and since it is given to him to live but
once, he must so live as to feel no torturing regrets for years without
purpose; so live as not to be seared with the shame of a cowardly and
trivial past; so live, that dying he can say: All my life and all my
strength were given to the finest cause in the world - the liberation of
(Nikolai Otrovksy, Bolshevik hero of the civil-war in 1919-1921)

I just hope Sukant never decides to get himself armed and go and do something about it. He's walking the line of fanaticism (maybe has even crossed it) and I really think he could be very dangerous if he wanted to be. True believers often are...
I've been thinking for a while that I have to start distancing myself from him and his groups, and now I know I have to. He's scaring me.
