Middle East "expert" Antony Loewenstein – expert in the same sense I'm a dentistry expert, having spent more time getting my teeth worked on than he has time in the Middle East – hopes for a Taliban victory in Afghanistan:
If anything may make governments think twice again before embarking on an ill-conceived mission, a solid thumping would certainly help.
Cool. When the religious thugs are back in power Afghanis won't have a thing to worry about. And if a few unfortunate locals do end up dead, at least they will have been killed by their own.

Loewenstein has expressed a similar wish before:
The defeat of America and its allies in Iraq is vital to ensure similiar acts are not carried out again.
In hoping for a "solid thumping" in Afghanistan Loewenstein is effectively advocating the killing of Western military personnel – including Australians – operating there. He knows this but does not care; a bit of controversy might generate some interest in his new book.

It's ironic that it was leftarded stooges like Loewenstein who complained the loudest about changes to our sedition laws a few years ago.

And yet, when they utter things that once upon a time would have seen them thrown up against the nearest wall and shot, absolutely nothing happens.

As might be expected.

So instead, we get to hear more of their whingeing about how their views are stifled and they are silenced.

Do these people have any idea how free they really are?

That's treason if I've ever seen it.

Can't we send Antony Loewenstein on a one way trip to Iran or the West Bank? He'll definitely feel more at home over there.
