Well, some parts of the US population did play a major role in financing the IRA campaign so they should know ...

Well, it's caused a bunch of arguments on a load of people's LJs.

Which is great for what is actually an appallingly "spun" article which is as bad as any neocon website you might want to name for misusing quotes and information to "prove" the line that they want. Follow up on some of those one sentence quotes the provide, and see how the emphasis changes. And check up on how a number of these "front page news" articles are actually opinion editorials.

I find The Guardian increasingly distasteful in its willingness to ignore facts, research and journalistic integrity in order to promote an anti-American message. Not to mention that in doing so it successfully devalues the many legitimate criticisms and comment on US policy that end up getting tarred with the same brush.

Pfftt
I flicked between BBC, Fox and CNN during the events.

Fox and CNN, there's your irresponsible reporting.

The quotes in the Guardian do fit what seems to be the US attitude, though they are double-backing as fast as they can.

Any propaganda tends to be on the bad side, it is always serving something other than the truth.

So if London is a hot bed of immigrant Muslim fundementalists how come the three suspects they've arrested are from Leeds?

Hopefully the anti-terroism squad have learnt their lesson and aren't just picking some likely looking lads. Me I blame Thatcher for shafting the north of England and making this population of youngsters with nothing to lose.

But I blame her for just about everythig anyway.
