Robert Fisk - War Journalism, and the Middle East [Ak Press/ Alternative Tentacles - 2006]

Robert Fisk is possible one of the most out spoken & honest war journalists you likely to come across, His colourful prose and gory description of war paints the situations very clearly in ones mind. He has covered most of the recent war and disturbance world wide over the 20 years or so in one way or another. He writes for the UK paper The Independent, but his work has featured in many other papers, news programmes and political  debates.

Here he focuses  on the middle east problems talking first about Osama Bin Laden, who he actual met on several occasion, then goes on to talk about suicide bombers, the real cost of war - the dead on both sides, and how Iraq and the Middle east in general now stands, clear away the lies and half truths that we are feed via our various governments and media. Fisk lived and still lives in Iraq so he has really on the ground out look; he talks in a wordy and descriptive manner, but never becomes too smart for his own good. He talks about the topics with depth and understanding, but also making them animated and interesting and of course often shocking. One of the most interesting and descriptive passages here is when Fisk Talks about visiting Sadam Hussein hiding hole.

This really is a valuable and enlightening audio document which really every one should listen to, as it shows the reality of war and the often made too completed Middle East conflict in an understandable,rewarding and of course disturbing manner
