The way Americans like their war

The following article appeared in the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, which is pretty significant, since American newspapers rarely offer anything by Robert Fisk, the UK Independent’s correspondent to the Middle East for over 30 years.  Mr. Fisk was witness to the Lebanese civil war, was one of the few to visit and meet with Osama Bin Ladin, and has never wavered under pressure of any type.

Whether you agree with his line or not, Fisk offers a school of thought full of factual arguments and, not withstanding the cynicism sometimes, sobering reminders of the cruelty of war, no matter who the perpitrators are.  Unlike others, however, he is not afraid to go into the reasons of why things happen, and does not withhold information simply because it may not be politically incorrect or lacks expediency.

You can read more about Robert Fisk through his web site, where you’ll have an opportunity to read his articles, listen to some interviews with him and watch some of his speeches.

On to the article, entitled: The way Americans like their war
