Not what I'd expect

The Madison chapter of a group called Socialist Alternative is putting on a forum on the Iraq war. They declare themselves anti-war, but are (semi) cool to the insurgency:
Through heroic strikes, mass demonstrations, and armed rebellion the Iraqi people have proven they will never accept colonial occupation of their country. However, the organizations dominating the Iraqi resistence are right-wing forces that support either a return to Baathist rule or a theocratic dictatorship. Some resistence groups are attempting to provoke a bloody civil war.

Should the US anti-war movement support the armed resistence in Iraq? How can US activists promote the emergence of progressive forces within Iraq? Come to a discussion on these questions, hear our opinions, and share yours.
At least it's better than unqualified support for Zarqawi.
