I have a very hard time taking Robert "No Americans in Baghdad" Fisk seriously.

It was pretty funny when that mob beat his ass, though.

What mob? :lol:

This seems to be extremely bias towards anti-american sentiments, giving only one side while iognoring the other...

I guess its supposed to make me burn with hate and anger at america, but its impact is lost somehow... :tongue:

UK journalist beaten by Afghan mob

Robert Fisk said he was lucky to survive

A British journalist is recovering after being beaten and pelted with stones by Afghan refugees in Pakistan.

It's just funny how he blames his attack on western action against the taliban, when this mob is made up of people who were chased out of Afghanistan by the taliban.

Fisk is a major asshole.


--------------------
You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

It'd be ok if he was an accurate asshole, but he's not.

Actually, since you're interested in being accurate, the article didn't say the mob was upset with US attacks on the Taliban, but rather: "Mr Fisk said he could understand the refugees' anger, as many had relatives who had been killed by the US bombing of Afghan city Kandahar last week."

Fair enough.

In the only direct quote, though, he simply refers to "US actions".

My all-time favorite from Fisk is his report on the peaceful scene at the baghdad airport.
