Intervention in Syria will escalate not stop the killing
However, most worthy as this article is, never was there a more appropriate and urgent test of a Guardian journalist's radical bona fides.
Having issued this welcome, cautionary warning, exposing the west's subterfuge, why doesn't Milne openly castigate the latest Guardian editorial Syria: Russia on thre wrong side?
If Milne's supposed purpose is to challenge the Western line for 'intervention' and all the propaganda supporting that agenda, surely the Guardian's highly influential voice can't be excluded from that criticism.
As one spot-on comment at the Media Lens message board puts it:
What, then, does Milne have to say about this gigantic elephant in his very own workplace, the Guardian editorial line making the effective case for western 'intervention' - with all the calamity that his own otherwise excellent article foretells?
