LGF doesn't like the Baghdad Blogger

Charles Johnson must be pretty frustrated that Salam Pax (aka the Baghdad Blogger) is still around. Having shown himself so ungrateful for the US invasion of his country, and then had the temerity to hook up with the Guardian, Salam Pax must be as close to the blogging anti-Christ as he can get in Charles' world. So Charles delights in a James Lileks post slamming Pax ( Interestingly, Mr J lets his true colours slip through when he calls Salam Pax "anti-American". Avid readers of Pax know that he is nothing of the sort. Rather he criticises the action of certain Americans (politicans, soldiers, right-wing pundits), but certainly not this mythical construct that is Charles' 'America'. But of course criticising CJ's politics is enough to make Pax anti-American - simple as that. Which is why, by that logic, we could justifiably call LGF anti-Muslim, anti-Islam, anti-German, anti-French, anti-British, anti-Swiss, anti-Belgian, anti.... the list goes on.
Hey, remember when Charlie though that Salam Pax was an Iraqi secret agent? For those of you who missed it, here's the posting: So much for Charles Johnson, counter-intelligence agent extraordinaire.
