Let’s get something straight: The American state is and always has been, regardless of the political party controlling it, the executive committee of the propertied classes who use the state to extract rents from the working and producing population. Treason against the American state, and the economic ruling classes whose interests it serves, is a good thing. The Wobblies, socialists and anarchists who inspired bleating about “disloyalty” and “treason” from right-wing troglodytes during America’s various red scares were the good guys.
Tom Cotton’s letter to Iran wasn’t wicked because he committed “treason” against the national security policy of the Chief Executive. It was wicked, like Nixon’s secret campaign diplomacy, because it attempted to sabotage an attempt to stop war. Cotton and his co-signers were acting as running dogs for the Israeli Apartheid state and its goal of initiating a murderous, offensive war against Iran. “Treason” that attempts to stop US wars of aggression, on the other hand, is a good thing when it occurs.
