For the last few weeks since it was published, I've been slowly making my way through Robert Fisk's book, The Great War for Civilisation, the Conquest of the Middle East. Currently, I'm just over half way through its 1366 pages. I've just finished chapter 17. Robert Fisk, reporter for the Independent, is one of the great reporters of our time, and for the last 20 years has reported on all the major events in the Middle East. If you're unsatisfied by the lies and deceit regurgitated by much of the media about the situation in Iraq, then I urge you to read some of Fisk's articles on this web-site, A collection of Articles & Reports by Mr. Robert Fisk. Better still, get the book yourself, and read it like I'm doing. If you're a Christian and reading this post, I plead with you to not believe the triumphalist neo-conservative garbage being posted by some 'evangelical' commentators such as Peter Glover, who seems to have sold his soul to George Bush and Dick Cheney.
