Owned by a letter day Engels? Certainly not - and it is even often doubtful
if anything is "further left over here".  For REALLY thoughtful stuff we
have to turn to Le Monde Diplomatique (now a separate entity from Le Monde).
They have just produced a special web issue on Iraq and the drive to war -
which gives (in clear) summaries of article and a HUGE number of links to
past articles delving into the history of the "crisis".  Unfortunately, and
understandably as they have to make things pay -  the full text of many
(even most) of the articles is only available to subscribers.

The special issue top pages are available at
