Robert Fisk Fisks Himself And Comes Up Wanting

robertfisk460ROBERT Fisk has Fisked himself. Fisk works for the dying Independent. And he’s come up wanting. Robert Fisk is heading to the Middle East with a dream:

We always arrive with our tanks and our helicopters and our armoured personnel carriers and our soldiers instead of arriving with our teachers, our educators, our doctors and our social carers … we always come with soldiers, we always come to impose the society we believe these people should have.

So we should send in the doctors, the teachers and the carers.


We still feel that we are the superior people, that we must teach the other people how to live their lives. But, you see, if you have an NGO, for example, go into an Afghan village and announce that there must be equality of education between men and women, the men will see this as an attack on their society, their culture and their religion.

Cancel the teachers!

At the end of the day, they are the ones who are going to have to come to this decision. And, if the delay takes another century, we westerners have to put up with that.

Book the teachers for 2109.
