At this point, the Guardian has no credibility where the US is concerned. As long as they run stories by and defend Glenn Greenwald , they are dirtbags unworthy of attention save for “know your enemy” purposes.

Should the US intervene in Great Britain because the EDL and other fascist groups are out of control? It makes about as much sense as this drivel.

This article will be front and center at Drudge and at all Alex Jones venues to support the UN gun grab fear that they perpetuate to keep militia mania going strong. It’s how they make their living. You almost have to wonder if Alex commissioned the piece.

The tipoff is in the first paragraph. This article isn’t about guns—it’s about non-intervention in Syria. (Or any place else if it’s driven by Guardian libertarians.)

Yep. In the second paragraph, equating (foreign) government actions with actions by random, (US) independent citizens, and proposing (in a pseudo-sarcastic way) to treat them the same, has that libertarian reek.

Peak moron:

If this perennial slaughter doesn’t qualify for intercession by the UN and all relevant NGOs, it is hard to know what does.

It’s only hard to know what does when you oppose ALL intervention.

There are excellent arguments for reducing gun deaths & ways to go about it.

This is not one of them.

Why is it the car death stat has such relevance? One of these things has nothing to do with the other. Plus it appears people are starting to drive more recklessly as they put excessive trust in air bags, active suspension, automated safety like proximity braking. The death rate declines but about that high speed accident rate? Anyone recall the Ferrari that hit a telephone pole 10 feet above street level, shattered and yet saved the occupants? That crash was way into triple digits. Have that crash in lesser car and all would perish.

NOTE TO Page Author
Seven paragraphs is well past the 4 paragraph limit. Yeah we often want to include more, I often do. We do not want to generate complaints or take down letters.

Responsible gun ownership. Therein lies where the goal should be.

Screw both the Far Left who think kids ‘playing guns’ is a punishable offense and the Far Right with their ‘pry my unregulated weapon from my cold dead hands’ crap. Time for some sensible, consitutional policy on this issue, special interests on both sides be damned.

@Political Atheist

Woops. Did not know that. Will observe next time. Thanks for pointing it out.

This is precisely how the rest of the world sees the US though - the guns attitude is insane - it’s hardly just a Guardian view.

Should note that the Guardian has a history just as slimy as the Daily Mail’s.

re: #8 Paul Canning

Does not matter. You chose to use the Guardian for your Page, and the Guardian is severely compromised as a result of its employment of Glenn Greenwald.
