Chomsky Guernica Pin Laden & Hitchens

In Guernica magazine (a very decent online publication)  Noam Chomsky makes the important point:

“…..Same with the name, Operation Geronimo. The imperial mentality is so profound, throughout western society, that no one can perceive that they are glorifying bin Laden by identifying him with courageous resistance against genocidal invaders. It’s like naming our murder weapons after victims of our crimes: Apache, Tomahawk..”

And he argues, similarly ,considering  SEALs going into Pakistan and considering the anger felt in this country that Pakistanis didnt denounce something about Pin laden or Al q (if they knew). Always officials of imperialist countries disregard the same principles they order to invade for, or they wouldnt be imperialist.

Dickheads like Hitchens go on the attack, but you cant trump(!!) Chomsky that easily. He, Noam, doesnt need body guards.

Hitchens it seems, is desperately or not, trying to make a graceful exit, having his main contributions been: 1) supporting Iraq invasion, 2) snitching on S. Blumenthal and oh yes!: 3) being an atheist. By the way Dr Chomsky invented, well almost invented, modern linguistics. And he is a true Orwellian.
