Re Lou P's posting on Harold Pinter. I'm certain that Pinter's heart is
in the right place these days. He opposed both the Gulf War and Nato's
assault upon Yugoslavia. However, his poems and letters on these
subjects were an embarrassment: puerile anti-Americanism, semi-literate
and full of obscenities, like an angst-ridden teenager, not an
intelligent adult. The pro-war Guardian gleefully printed them in a
deliberate attempt to discredit the movement against the wars.
