Below his usual low standard, today Robert Fisk tells us that:
“[In] Lebanon. Its press is free. Its people are. It got shot of Syria in 1995 (albeit at the cost of an ex-Prime Minister’s life)”
So Hariri died 10 years before he was killed, apparently.
“In Yemen, there are bad times – the government helping the US drone attacks on Al Jazeera operatives.”
Topped off with a healthy dose of sectarianism:
“Ahmed Shafik, the Mubarak loyalist, has the support of the Christian Copts, and Assad has the support of the Syrian Christians. The Christians support the dictators.”
Bad times indeed.
