Daesh (aka ISIS) vs. the U.S: Who(m) Will Noam Chomsky Support?
The U.S. and the Obama administration have authorized force in Iraq to protect the Kurds and the Yazidi against the Islamic State (Or Daesh). Soon Noam Chomsky will demand the U.S. be charged with war crimes for this, while keeping silent or dismissing or blaming the U.S. for creating ISIS, an Islamic Khmer Rouge. (Go to CNN: ISIS Brutality Caught on Video)
Chomsky criticizes those who protect his rights to free speech, and defends those who would imprison him. He misreads history (see Chomsky on WWII and Cambodia), invents polemics, and then accuses critics of taking him out of context. How ironic. He is an academic sinecure bathed in comfort in a democratic country.
(PS – Should the title above use “Whom” or “Who?” Unlike politics, this is a puzzle worthy of Chomsky. )
Update 9/9/2014: Chomsky has spoken at Truthout, a Chomskyphile site where eloquent folks, like the commenters on this post, congregate.
1/12/2015: Noam Chomsky joins conspiracy nuck-futs, blames Charlie Hebdo on West, Israel, everyone but terrorists.
Unlike the Khmer Rouge, ISIS/Daesh crimes will be on social media – Vice TV:
