    It just means he is wrong. Not that dissent is wrong or unAmerican. One can dissent and still be wrong. Conversely one can dissent and be right. It has nothing to do with being American last time I checked.

    Dissent isn't owned by a party or a country.

    •  He said we have committed atrocities (none)
      Do you agree?  If so then where is he wrong ?  

      Before you answer Ill say the little eichmanns comparison was over the top and misunderstood.

      •  Agreed (none)
        That snippet of hyperbole was a little bit over the top, but the underlying points he makes are not only valid and legitimate issues to discuss and argue, but I posit vital to really addressing the roots causes of violence and conflict which give rise to things such as 9/11.

        •  Agreed also (none)
          I agree with what you are saying. Problem is that the real points he was trying to make became obscured by the really poor choice of words. And that, unfortunately, will silence everything else he has to say.

          •  Agreed. (none)
            And I also agree with the valid points Armando is making about how the chorus of dirt-balls in the Fright-WingTM can and will use this to try and further marginalize "the lefT" and substantive debate on the legitimate underpinning of these issues which is what Churchill was driving at.

            I happen to believe that attacking Churchill is doing the Fright-WingTM ugly dirty work for them in silencing the truth, and honest discussion.

            cheers,
