george galloway: i don't believe we should punish people for having a dictatorship they didn't elect and can't get rid of

Two weeks ago, at Toronto's Trinity St. Paul Centre, George Galloway spoke about the grassroots revolutions in the Arab world, and the intervention or interference of Western nations. I couldn't be there, so I'm grateful for YouTube and activists with video cameras.

The whole talk is about 26 minutes (parts 1 and 2), and well worth your time. In parts 3, 4, and 5, Galloway responds to some hecklers with his usual arsenal of facts, wit and aplomb. And for a bonus, courtesy of Allan, there is Galloway discussing Libya on the UK's Sky News on March 19.

Kev: I am the allan who commented on your Reagan post today!

That post re Reagan and the Silent Holocaust is excellent. I'm always glad to see people remember that the US wasn't all sweetness and light before Bush. It's amazing how many people succumb to the "things have turned so bad... how did this happen to the wonderful USA" line of thought.

I don't want mainstream news shows to stop interviewing Galloway, but
I have to wonder why they keep setting themselves up for abuse. They offer feeble little squeaks of conventional "wisdom" and he simply destroys them with facts, logic and wit.

As long as you said "before 1607", you'd be okay.

Thanks Guys, Being a fan of wmtc I recognized Allan right away.

As for Reagan, as I said over at Montreal Simon's place, he is the reason that I became politically and socially aware in my early twenties as he scared the heck outta me with his warmongering and his demonizing of aids suffers
