Guardian - slip of the tongue?

In the moral equivalence twilight of British press, where the use of the charged word "terrorist" is a big no-no, Guardian still makes an exception in one case: when the person(s) killed or maimed is (are) of British persuasion:

Sinn Fein condemns terrorist attack

It's as good time as any to use this revolting moral equivalence maxim: "One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter". Especially when the attacked were British soldiers in the occupied Northern Ireland.

Eat your own excrement, folks. Until you grok that a fucking terrorist is a fucking terrorist.
