5.) Galloway calls capitalism “biggest killer the world has ever known” on Abu Dhabi TV in 2004

“Bush, and Blair, and the prime minister of Japan, and Berlusconi, these people are criminals, and they are responsible for mass murder in the world, for the war, and for the occupation, through their support for Israel, and through their support for a globalized capitalist economic system, which is the biggest killer the world has ever known.”

4.) Galloway praises Saddam Hussein while in Iraq in 1994

“Sir, I salute your courage, your strength, your indefatigability.”

3.) Galloway laments the fall of the Soviet Union 

“If you are asking did I support the Soviet Union, yes I did. Yes, I did support the Soviet Union, and I think the disappearance of the Soviet Union is the biggest catastrophe of my life. If there was a Soviet Union today, we would not be having this conversation about plunging into a new war in the Middle East, and the US would not be rampaging around the globe.”The Guardian, 2002

2.) Galloway praises Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad in 2009

“For me, he is the last Arab ruler and Syria is the last Arab country.”

1.) Galloway defends North Korea this month on his show on Iranian propaganda television 

“I’m much more afraid of the United States of America and so are most people in the world.”
