Left Hook, Right Jab

CounterPunch's JohnV. Walsh reports on a meeting of folks "determined to trespass beyond the bounds set by partisan gatekeepers on both sides" — Join Libertarians & Leftists for Panel at Left Forum. "Their aim is to continue discussion of an antiwar movement 'with American characteristics.'" Cool! More:
    The discussion will be in the proud tradition of the Anti-imperialist League which opposed the war in the Philippines over 100 years ago and which counted among its members Mark Twain, a man deeply sympathetic with revolutionary change, and Andrew Carnegie, the richest man in America at the time.

    The discussion will take account of the end of the Cold War and the emergence of the Ron Paul libertarian movement, which has been steely in opposing Empire and war. It will take into account the enthusiasm of youth for the Ron Paul endeavor. And it will be a step to prevent Right and Left from being divided on questions of war, Empire and civil liberties, then conquered, by the imperial elite in Washington and on Wall Street.

The left aren't our friends. They don't believe in peace, as Hanoi Jane and Weather Underground made clear. They were rooting for the other side. They just wanted to take over. And they did.
