: Most people will not have heard of the Workers World Party, which, according to Cockburn, is the organization that has put together this new "anti-war" coalition. But I remember them from the sixties as the only Trotskyist splinter to endorse the Soviet invasion of Hungary in 1956... (From National Review, February 25, 1991.)

Note the words the only Trotskyist splinter..., then ask yourself: Were there more than one 'Trotskyite' group? If so, were their policies different?

Then ask yourself: Who on this debate board is supporting some obscure tendency from 30 years ago?

Straw man.

As William S. Burroughs put it: 'You win something like jellyfish, meester.'
