Robert Fisk (yes, that Robert Fisk) is apparently in Iran. As is routine for Fisk with his delusional world view, he finds himself shocked at the violence directed against demonstrators.
Robert Fisk, a writer and journalist who was observing the rally, told Al Jazeera he had heard shoots fired and seen demonstrators break out into a run, but that things had continued to be largely peaceful.
“It’s extraordinary to me that anyone would start shooting at such a huge crowd of people,” he said.
Gee, Fisky, do you think it might have something to do with the people doing the shooting being are… what’s the technical term for it… oh, right, Evil?
It says a lot about Fisk’s world view that he finds it extraordinary that a brutal, authoritarian regime would open fire on protestors. It explains a lot as well.
