It's particularly weird to take this attitude - everything is supported to opposing 'imperialism' - about Iran. If there's one place where the dangers of this approach came to a head, it was Iran in 1979. The regime which consolidated after the Iranian revolution -that of Ayatollah Khomeini - used 'anti-imperialism' as the rhetoric under which it attacked and destroyed the left and the workers' movement.

It's incredible, and pretty depressing, that many on the left seem unable to learn this important lesson.
