Jason,

I was perfectly polite. I called your politics out for what I think they are. Sorry if that offends you.

Yes, it is possible to support the revolution and oppose imperialism. I manage it.

But your position doesn't just "oppose imperialism" in a general sense. It argues that the first priority for socialists in this situation is to actively campaign against the specific action that some imperialist states are currently undertaking, even though we don't actually want the outcome that any successful campaign against it would bring about!

Opposing imperialism doesn't mean actively campaigning to "stop" every single thing that imperialist states do, especially when you're not strong enough to impose a better alternative.
