Hitchens vs Galloway

Publicist Christopher Hitchens had a public debate about Iraq with the British MP ‘Gorgeous’ George Galloway. Audiostreams are available here. MP3 .

Hitchens called Galloway before the debate:

A man who supported the previous oppressors of the region—the Soviet army in Afghanistan and Saddam Hussein in Iraq—who supports its current oppressors—Bashar Assad and his Lebanese proxies—and who still has time to endorse its potential future tyrants in the shape of the jihadists in Iraq and elsewhere. Galloway began his political life as a fifth-rate apologist for the Soviet Union, but he has now diversified into being an apologist for Stalinism, for fascism, and for jihadism all at once!

Galloway said to Hitchens previously:

You’re a drink-soaked former Trotskyist popinjay. Your hands are shaking. You badly need another drink…

And mainly debates in this way.

Interesting to know there are battles you’d wish both sides would lose.
