Axis Of Weasels Enemies

Well, now. Isn’t this interesting:

Who’s funding the insurgents in Iraq? The list of suspects is long: ex-Baathists, foreign jihadists, and angry Sunnis, to name a few. Now add to that roster hard-core Euroleftists.

Turns out that far-left groups in western Europe are carrying on a campaign dubbed Ten Euros for the Resistance, offering aid and comfort to the car bombers, kidnappers, and snipers trying to destabilize the fledgling Iraq government. In the words of one Italian website, Iraq Libero (Free Iraq), the funds are meant for those fighting the occupanti imperialisti. The groups are an odd collection, made up largely of Marxists and Maoists, sprinkled with an array of Arab emigres and aging, old-school fascists, according to Lorenzo Vidino, an analyst on European terrorism based at The Investigative Project in Washington, D.C. “It’s the old anticapitalist, anti-U.S., anti-Israel crowd,” says Vidino, who has been to their gatherings, where he saw activists from Austria, Denmark, Germany, and Italy. “The glue that binds them together is anti-Americanism.” The groups are working on an October conference to further support “the Iraqi Resistance.” A key goal is to expand backing for the insurgents from the fringe left to the broader antiwar and antiglobalization movements.

    Why am I not surprised?

  2. mrsizer Says:

    Hmm. Don’t we still have a lot of troops in Europe… Just asking.

    More seriously, isn’t this illegal – even in Europe? They’ve been doing a decent job of rounding up terrorist cells and tracking down their financing.

  3. rbj Says:

    If they are aiding our enemies, those who are killing our soldiers, then they are fair targets for assassination.

  4. ed in texas Says:

    Ah, the European Union takes military action.

  5. erp Says:

    I bet the far left in the U.S. are also aiding and abetting the “insurgency.”

    Hey, are you questioning their patriotism?! It seems to me they are quite patriotic (to Al Qaeda, perhaps…)

    I would hate to see their conference in October hit with an explosion of some sort

  10. Patrick J Flynn Says:

    I understand that the euroleft has started a new program call ” 10 Euros for Dick Durban” in order to get his campaign war chest built up.

  11. sven10077 Says:

    Thing is that the US could engage in asymetrical warfare itself. This is nothing less than defacto aid and comfort to the opfor. The Israelis can give us pointers on the “Dr. Bull treatment”.

  12. Rob W Says:

    Last summer’s Shia insurgents got paid out of Iran. Different groupings within Iran paid the Badr Brigades (which were originally attached to the Iranian army during the Iran-Iraq war). The Sunnis are financed by rich Saudis and funds left over from the 70+ years of Sunni domination.

  13. Rootless Cosmo Says:

    Exactly the kind of thing we should be funding [maybe with reimbursement from some erstwhile allies] and sponsoring. Get them all in one place, id and eliminate after they scurry back to their homes and we track their networks from there.

  14. Crank Says:

    I guess the name “Thirty Pieces of Silver” was taken.

    These guys are, literally, at war with the United States. Ought to be something we can do about them.

    That’s got a nice ring to it! Be a great nome-de-blog.

  21. TF6S Says:

    I always knew where the extreme left’s heart was, but it looks like their balls are starting to follow.

    First they’re funding extremists in Iraq, what next? Would anyone like to put a probability on lefty sponsored domestic terrorism?

    I’m not one for slipperly slopes, but listening to the rhetoric of leftists out here in San Francisco its hard to ignore. Eventually one of these idiots is going to start taking it seriously enough to become the Left’s Timothy McVeigh. We cannot hope that they’ll remain lazy for too long.

  22. Patrick Chester Says:

  24. jpe Says:

    offering aid and comfort to the car bombers, kidnappers, and snipers trying to destabilize the fledgling Iraq government.

    Why do they have to use the phrase “aid and comfort”? It’s such a gay phrase, and its suggestion of treason is inapplicable.

  25. Blithering Bunny Says:

    The Euroleft-jihad link

    Despite the repeated denials that the old hard left is in bed with the Islamic terrorists, the two continue to come together:
    Who’s funding the insurgents in Iraq? The list of suspects is long: ex-Baathists, foreign jihadists, and angry Sunnis,…

  26. Meezer Says:

    “aid and comfort” is an old phrase that goes back to the days when a bedraggled war party would go to a sympathizer for food, bandages and fresh horses. It still applies in the sense that anything that helps them materially to keep fighting is “aid” and comfort comes from the assurance such aid gives that they still have friends and supporters.

  27. N. O'Brain Says:

    I still like the phrase “jumpin’ jeebus on a pogo stick!”

    But that’s just me.

  28. Pixy Misa Says:

    Italy still has troops in Iraq, right? I wonder what their treason laws are like.

  29. scrapiron Says:

    It’s just what I expect from the Islamic Republic of France. They think they are high and mighty now, give it another couple of years and there will be no France, at least not one that a Frenchman is welcome in. Several other Liberal (stupid) european countries are already in the death throes of losing thir country. Goodie for them.

    Illegal? Don’t make me laugh. They probably have a check a box on their tax forms to have money sent directly to the terrorists.

  38. penny Says:

    I can’t wait for Europeans to be subject to the dhimmitude they deserve. They’ve laid down to Fascism, Communism and every failed “ism” that history conjured up including existentialism, nihilism and that self-loathing idiot Derrida of the Deconstructionists, a popular gig on campuses. With one in ten French citizens Muslims and out breeding the natives how long will those nudes in the Louve last as the imams gain power? Good-bye to The Birth of Venus. Good-bye to the French wine industry. It’s only a matter of time.

  39. Al Fin Says:

    Leftists have been growing desperate, since their fall from power in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union. Only the hellholes of North Korea and Cuba are still unequicovacably controlled by the left. They miss the power. They’ll do anything to get it back.

    WAR: The Enemy

    Leftists in Europe are helping to finance the insurgents in Iraq….

  44. kevino Says:

    penny:

    I agree. The looney left are playing with fire. If the Islamo- fascists win, they are in for a shock. It’s bad enough that the people they’re supporting are murderers of the worst kind. These bigots will destroy everything that they favor: free speech, women’s rights, you name it.

    It’s time to admit that Europe is a quagmire. Sixty years of occupation has not given us a stable political situation or a Europe that understands democratic institutions free of corruption. It’s time to give up: withdraw all US troops from Europe.

  45. ak Says:

    The insurgents aren’t just killing Americans. They’re killing Iraqis too. The European radical left proved its utter moral bankruptcy–and its bloodlust–in the 1970s and 80s. But in case anyone forgot, here they are again to remind us that anti-Americanism is far more important than the peace and well-being of normal Iraqis.

  46. Regina Says:

    Leftists who control most american universities are also contributing to these causes. The same kind of tenured professor who says “let a million Mogadishus bloom!” and “anyone who bombs the Pentagon gets my vote!” are not going to pass up the opportunity to contribute to vile murderers.

    I’m finished with all things European. We are from stock that got on the boat and out of there.

    Younger daughter was in Paris(not my idea) awhile ago and was verbally savaged by some weasel in a bar that overheard her American accent. He got bitchslapped verbally in returned. Sorry she didn’t deck him.

    What has Europe ever given us that we haven’t returned in blood to save their pathetic lives?

    A few generations of EU sheeple under the tyranny of the imams hopefully will end their destiny with Darwin or give them that old time religion they’ve denied themselves. Their choice.

    I know what you mean. I have in-laws that live in England, and I visit from time-to-time. As the resident Yank, I get amBushed by family, friends, and complete strangers. The worst was a member of the British press after my father-in-law’s funeral starting to ask questions about US policy. His initial gambit was, “Why do you think that Americans don’t listen more to the opinions of Europeans?”

    I wanted to say something like:
    1. I don’t listen to France, Germany, and Russia because they are the corrupt governments that are profitting by the illegal arms business, the suffering of the Iraqi people, and support for a brutal dictator. I don’t generally listen to what criminals want when it comes to crime policy.
    2. The French and the Germans are the people whose ass we saved and the people whose ass we kicked.
    3. Europeans are not well informed about international law, the UN oil-for-food scandal, or what is at stake in the Middle East.
    4. Europeans have always been envious of us, particularly after we rebuilt Europe and did better than the Europeans. Obviously they want a US defeat so they can feel better about themselves.
    5. Many Europeans are derranged. Tens of thousands protest Bush when he visits, but only a couple of dozen protest Putin for the pure brutality of Chechnya. Many believe the US knew about or actually planned 9/11.
    6. Europeans are cowards by trying to appease the Islamic fanatics in Europe. And they will look to us to bail them out again if things get tough.

    . . . [Sorry, had to vent.]

    Of course, I didn’t say anything like that, and I didn’t smash his face in. I gently told him he was being rude, “I have come hear to mourn the loss of my father-in-law — and my friend. I don’t think it’s appropriate to discuss that subject here.”

    Bottom line: I’m with you. US out of NATO. They can’t appease the Islamo-fascists; the fascists will take control of them. Good.

  50. Hugh Says:

    I think there are two things we could do. First, we could send some very rough people to kick ass and take names at that group’s offices and/or at one of its gatherings.

    In the alternative, we could see if law enforcement could monitor their dealings, then seize the funds raised. The Iraqi militants are terrorists and providing financial support for terrorists is illegal in most of the western world.

    Frankly, I just want these fools killed. Let’s raid the group’s offices, get their mailing list and finance reports, find out who their contributors and supporters are, and visit some pain on them.

    I’m shocked, simply shocked, to find leftists here.

    I love how the rightists support murderers and tyrants. I call the right the political wing of mass murder. They can’t help themselves, they love me and my dictator comrades!!

  55. OldManDownthe Road Says:

    I would suggest that anyone surprised by this development should make a point of reading the far-left pubs like the Nation. This exact issue came up right about the time of the Iraqi invasion. Don’t remember if the author was Katha Pollitt or the other feminist leftist, but the gist of the article was this: “we aren’t afraid of American defeat in Iraq, but of American victory, because if the Americans win they establish another bastion of capitalism.”

    Well, that’s what is happening, and since these folks never accepted the fact that they LOST the cold war AND the hearts and minds of most of the world’s population, they are hanging with ANYONE that they think can help them regain their lost power. “The enemy of my enemy is my friend,” so what’s the surprise? If you can stomach reading the other side’s material (I stopped in 2004 but think I will start again) you can get a pretty good idea of what’s making them tick.

    As to what should be done: the Constitution is pretty clear about what Treason is, and this sure constitutes giving aid and comfort to the enemy. Other posters have made this point better than I.

  56. SoCalPundit Says:

    Liberals Do The Terrorists’ Bidding

    This week we heard that a motley bunch of Europeans have gotten together to form a group that offers “aid and comfort” to the Islamofascists that the U.S. fights in Iraq and in the greater War on Terror. This is simply another admission by…

  57. Saddam Says:

    Thanks, friend troll, for rallying around me. You prove my point that leftists love my ass.

    Pinochet is a pussy. He only killed a few thousand. I caused over a million to be killed. I murdered young children in front of their parents to get the parents to confess to disloyalty. Then I tortured the miserable traitors until they died. Screw Pinochet and pussies like him! I’m a real brutal killer man, a true friend of leftists!
