    …Guardian publishes an article advocating a no-fly (free smuggling) zone over Syria:

    …and an article calling Russia’s sanctions against Turkey oppressive:

    I’m depressed anew with every article how right-wing the majority of comments on political articles have become. If I say anything that goes against the prevailing conservative view of a situation, I immediately get shouted down. Neoliberals and imperialists ahoy.

    The US has funded terrorists for decades, so do its allies… nothing new here. Curious to see how “left wing” outlets like the Guardian report this.

    • Except The Guardian is no longer left wing, if it ever was. I have always viewed it as a 19th Century Liberal paper.
      It continues in that imperialist tradition to this day.
      It is, was and always will be a capitalist, imperialist, neo-liberal and zionist rag.
      Regrettably, there are no mass circulation left-wing newspapers anymore.
      That element of political opinion has been effectively silenced in the media.
      Even some who appear to be left-orientated are not at all, in reality.

    If you are part of the U.S. club / them you can (literally) get away with murder.
    State terrorism is okay if you are Americas vassal, you can steal on a grand scale, fund terrorism, shoot political opponents, jail journalists, with out a peep from the MSM
