Re: "James Bond 23" officially slated for 2012!

I just think it's silly to pretend that an organization that's engaging in extreme rightist behavior by literally trying to overthrow a nation's legitimately-elected government in order to install a military dictator who will let them profit by privatizing and exploiting a public resource in the exact same manner that large corporations have in the past (e.g., corporate backers of the coup in Chile, the Bolivian water crisis in 2000) -- is not therefore by definition a rightist organization.
