Guardian - Not everybody likes to lie

A very good example of a newspaper which obviously values its good name.
No lies, but good analysis with some explanations of a background behind the situation.
My respect to the British Guardian. We appreciate it very much.

The clash between Russia and Georgia over South Ossetia, which escalated dramatically yesterday, in truth has more in common with the Falklands war of 1982 than it does with a cold war crisis. When the Argentine junta was basking in public approval for its bloodless recovery of Las Malvinas, Henry Kissinger anticipated Britain's widely unexpected military response with the comment: "No great power retreats for ever." Maybe today Russia has stopped the long retreat to Moscow which started under Gorbachev.
