Default Re: An Advertisement for Openness (Glenn Greenwald & Matt Welch)

It would be interesting to hear what you think of all those figures who yelled so loudly to condemn the Vietnamese invasion of Cambodia that ended the atrocities. Are they to be criticized? Because, unlike Chomsky, who insisted that the Cambodians not be used as propaganda exercises and cited State Dept. numbers, these people were actually screaming about how wrong it was to end Pol Pot's regime of terror.

I assume that, because you seem so agitated that Chomsky once said that there was only evidence of murders merely numbering in the "thousands" instead of the "millions," you will go absolutely apesh#t about the US's response, which was to IMPOSE SANCTIONS on the Vietnamese for ending the genocide, and then supporting Cambodian elements who demonstrated continuity with the Pol Pot regime.

Or is your ire restricted to those who demonstrate insufficient political correctness about "officially recognized" crimes while bringing up far more important and overlooked crimes in which WE ARE IMPLICATED?
