New internationalists

Writing in yesterday's Times newspaper, David Aaronovitch claims that "Slobodan Milosevic, more than anyone else, caused a division within the Left and Centre Left, dividing the pacifists, anti-imperialists and anti-Americans from the anti-fascists and the internationalists." This hinges on a new concept of internationalism, or at least one honed by growing up in the Communist Party. For internationalists in Britain, the only legitimate place for anti-Americanism was inside the United States itself: the main enemy is at home.
