Isn't it interesting that the loudest supporters of wars to spread "freedom" and "democracy" abroad are so keen on silencing any opinions which differ from their own!
Here's a letter which was sent in to The First Post.
YOUR PUBLICATION CAME TO MY ATTENTION AS IT WAS ADVERTISED ON MY FRIEND MATT DRUDGE'S SITE.
I HAVE MANY FRIENDS IN NYC STARTING WITH MR SULZBURGER AT THE NEW YORK TIMES AND MR BRENDON MINTAUR AT THE WALL STREET JOURNAL. JOHN MEECHAM AT NEWSWEEK IS A VERY CLOSE FRIEND OF MINE FROM HIS DAYS AT THE OCHS FLAGSHIP, THE CHATTANOOGA TIMES.
I READ MR FOX'S ARTICLE ON IRAQ. HE HAS NO SOURCES OF MERIT TO BACK UP HIS ASSERTIONS. I KNOW COMPLETELY DIFFERENT AS MY COMPANY ADVISES THE PENTAGON AND STATE DEPARTMENT ON ACTIVITIES AND ACTIONS NEEDED IN IRAQ TO PROMOTE A BETTER DAY FOR THE IRAQI PEOPLE.
MY OP/ED ON IRAQ WILL BE PRINTED SUNDAY IN THE NEW YORK TIMES. I SUGGEST YOU READ IT AS IT IS THE CLOSEST TO THE FACTS ON THE GROUND YOU WILL FIND ANYWHERE.
I DO NOT SUGGEST THIS... THIS IS A TELL... IF YOU CONTINUE TO INTERFERE WITH USA INTERNAL POLITICS FROM OFFSHORE, I WILL BE FORCED TO CONTACT ALL YOUR ADVERTISERS AND ANY BANKS WHERE YOU MIGHT HAVE LOANS AND SQUEEZE YOU WITHIN AN INCH OF YOUR FINANCIAL LIFE.
I TELL YOU NOW TO DIVEST YOURSELF OF THIS THE FIRST POST HOLDING OR I WILL START MY OWN A---------Z POST IN THE BRITISH ISLES, AND MY INFORMATION SOURCES ARE INDIGNANTLY BETTER THAN YOURS AND I ENTERTAIN WHILE DESTROYING PHANTOMS WHO CALL THEMSELVES JOURNALISTS.
THE NEXT YOU HEAR FROM ME WILL BE THE PULLING ON THE NOTES OF YOUR BUSINESS AND PERSONAL HOLDINGS INCLUDING YOUR HOME OR HOMES. DIVEST IMMEDIATELY THIS HOLDING AND NEVER COME ON THESE SHORES AGAIN WITH THIS TYPE OF BIASED, SLANTED CONTENT.

Here's another supporter of "freedom" and "democracy":
It seems the irony of a columnist for a magazine called ‘Democratiya’ deleting so many comments is entirely lost on this twerp:
