“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it,” the old and oft-repeated aphorism goes.

A textbook ... Syria
This is Robert Fisk. I know he's controversial and that he has made serious mistakes. Whatever else you say about Fisk, he has a massive record of reporting from Northern Ireland and the Middle East. He has won most prizes available to journalists including the Orwell Prize and the British Press Awards' ... Syria
Many are citing Robert Fisk's reporting this week from Syria on a doctor who was not a witness to the attack and yet claimed that the dozens of Syrians who died were asphyxiated by dust rather than poisoned by chemicals.

Syria
Jaber's testimony is consistent with claims made by a Douma doctor who spoke with veteran UK journalist Robert Fisk.

A report by the Independent's veteran Middle East correspondent Robert Fisk quotes doctors in Duma saying victims suffered from dust inhalation and that a member of the White Helmet caused panic by falsely shouting, “Gas!” The White Helmets were then bussed out with other jihadists, as Caitlin ... Syria
This is the story of a town called Douma, a ravaged, stinking place of smashed apartment blocks – and of an underground clinic whose images of suffering allowed three of the Western world's most powerful nations to bomb Syria last week.

The SDF, or Syrian Democratic Force, is a US-constructed outfit, which, in journalist Robert Fisk's words, is neither Syrian (it's dominated by Kurds, including those of Turkish origin) nor democratic (since it imposes Kurdish rule over traditionally Arab areas and dances to a tune called by a foreign master). Syria
Toen Turkse troepen twee maanden geleden een offensief in Afrin begonnen tegen de Koerdische militie YPG, had Robert Fisk als een van de weinige journalisten toegang tot het gebied.

In 2012, Robert Fisk wrote about a 14-month-old Iraqi named Sayef who had a severely enlarged head, was blind, paralysed and unable to swallow.

And so Dunphy, the original host of Today FM's The Last Word, began podcasting long interviews with journalists such as Niall Stanage and Robert Fisk. “It's been evolving as I find out what works and doesn't work.

In regard to whether we should pay more for a longer transition period in our sluggish rush to Brexit, it's about time we told M Barnier and his mates to do one.

What a pity for a long career of journalism to end with becoming a propaganda instrument for the PKK terrorist organization and its Syrian offshoot Democratic Union Party's (PYD) defamation campaign. I am talking about Robert Fisk's recent catastrophic piece for the Independent daily. The piece is a ... Syria
It's below zero degrees on the vast dirt hillside above Totah but through the mist and freezing rain, I can see the Syrian general's target, a small Isis-held village across a valley of mud.

Isn't the man in charge of the CIA's Iran operations taking a serious interest in the latest events in Iran? Surely he is. That's his job, isn't it? But why this silence? Robert Fisk Middle East Correspondent; @indyvoices; Thursday 4 January 2018 10:30 GMT ... Syria

Dear Bashar al-Assad Apologists,. Sorry to interrupt: I know you're very busy right now trying to convince yourselves, and the rest of us, that your hero couldn't possibly have used chemical weapons to kill up to 70 people in rebel-held Douma on April 7. Maybe Robert Fisk's mysterious doctor has it ... War
One of the only balanced reports in the Western press, and the best by far, was written by Robert Fisk, another noted correspondent at the Independent, and published late last week.

Robert Fisk, the veteran Middle East reporter for the U.K.'s Independent newspaper, had another name for these bases: “crusader castles” – after the medieval fortresses built by equally isolated foreign invaders a thousand years ago that still dot the landscape of the Middle East.

Conspiracy theorists, who prove mostly right in the topsy turvy post-9/11 world, are these days busy switching channels – Syria, Afghanistan, Korean peninsula and, yes, one more theatre – FIFA World Cup – which will be in heavy focus in June-July. All these narratives have Russia in them, including, quite ... War
Dr Heddo – trained as a doctor at the Aleppo medical school, he confided – wouldn't exactly confirm he was an official of the YPG although he certainly sounded like it. He insisted we were in a medical facility. It had marble floors. It was spotless. And it seemed to have no patients. Robert Fisk Afrin, Syria ... War
The veteran correspondent Robert Fisk, the first journalist to enter the war zone corroborated the KNK report.

In September 2010, Robert Fisk wrote that in a single place, Basra, in Iraq, more than 15 women a month were being killed for not covering up “properly”.
