The trouble with the Guardian's "Comment Is Free" pages is that pretty much everything on them you've read before.
"The Problems of (insert trouble-spot here) Are Due To British/European/Western Colonialism"
"It's All Our Fault"
"All Whites Are Racist"
"Don't Lock Up Criminals - You'll Only Make Them Worse"
"How The Plucky Little VietCong/Hezbollah/Hamas/Sandinistas/Al Quaeda Defied The Might Of America"
"Why Are There No Women In Senior Positions In Hezbollah ?"
You find that you've nearly always got a two year old blog post on the subject, a chunk of which one can immediately cut'n'paste into a comment, along with a link to the rest of the post.
It's making me awfully lazy.
