Living in the Age of Terror

"With chaos stretching from Afghanistan to the Mediterranean, we have never lived in a more dangerous time. Over the next 15 pages and 7,000 words, our man in the Middle East looks back over a lifetime of covering war and death, and lays out a bleak future for all of us - one that even those living in the comfort of the Home Counties cannot escape".

That is the sub-heading to a feature article in The Independent by the newspaper's "man", the redoubtable Robert Fisk - the expert of the Middle East after having lived in Beirut for 30 years and having "covered" all major conflicts.

Fisk's piece, here, doesn't make for happy reading. "Bleak", as The Independent rightly says, is the operative word.
