For me 'full stop' only means 'regardless of the character of the regime
that is being attacked, and independently of one's public criticism of it'.
For example, it's legitimate for Westerners to oppose the invasion of Iraq
and yet be openly critical of Saddam Hussein's regime. It's also more
consistently democratic.

The same applies to regimes that call themselves left-wing or socialist,
except that here it's even more important to be consistent - if we really
believe in democratic socialism.
