Noting, mind, that in Marx's today, liberalism was so radical as to be actively repressed in most of Europe. The equivalent to the liberals of 1848 today would be something like Die Linke today, radical constitutional reformists, not the Democratic Party or even the SPD.
Yes, there are a few wrinkles here. The "left" in 1848 couldn't afford the luxury of sectarianism. At the same time revolutionary politics were far more called for in mid-19th century Europe than they are in 21st century Europe or US.
While I disagree sometimes vehemently with revolutionary socialists like WIM, my position is that we need such people around to keep lazy social democrats like me sharp - they have an important role to play in the dialectical process of historical development! I enjoy arguing with them online and hanging out with them in real life, not least because I held many of these positions just a few years ago.

I don't really like any of that stuff, but I'm pretty sure none of those things is a war crime. I mean, I'm not super-familiar with the relevant statues but...pretty sure.
