41. Why are we with Uncle Sam? [Lobster #57 (Summer 2009)]
... of America to avoid taxation and President Kennedy's attempts to regulate their activities, Britain became the offshore banking centre of choice for Wall Street. And thirdly, Britain has been useful as diplomatic cover for American power. For sixty years Britain has 'stood by' its ally, through the slaughter in Vietnam, half a million dead Indonesians, military coups all over South America in the 60s and 70s, hundreds of thousands of deaths in Guatemala, El Salvador and Nicaragua in the 1980s, right up to supporting it while it killed somewhere between half a million and a million Iraqis. Britain has been a bomber base, a tax avoidance centre for US banks and a diplomatic fig leaf ...

... Britain under NuLab is not Nazi Germany but.... In this milieu Evans focuses on MI5. He is not a fan. He shows their expansion, their lack of accountability and their incompetence. He has a chapter, 'The sub-verting of Britain', in which he reminds us of Brigadier Kitson's ideas, the talk of a coup in The Times in 1974, General Sir Walter Walker's Civil Assistance and 'the Wilson plots'. This isn't done very well not enough detail and no indication from Evans that this field has been ploughed already but for a formerly mainstream journalist at an establishment broadsheet he has taken on board quite a bit of the radical agenda of the past ...

43. Moscow on the Hudson? [Lobster #57 (Summer 2009)]
... their Pacific and Arctic meeting points; destinies pursued With God On Our Side and many more. Briefly, some things which the book does not contain. Although covert operations and democracy (in America) are acknowledged as uneasy bedfellows there is no 'deep politics' in the analysis in regard to the many political assassinations, engin-eered wars, foreign coups and the wider Machiavellian activities of the rogue and secret state. The official 9-11 narrative also goes unchallenged and the link between corporate interests and CIA activity, for example, is not explored in substantial depth. Academics will find lacunae in the lack of conventional social science explanatory concepts, particularly those familiar with ideology critique. The ever present ...

... over at the head of an Emergency Government, backed up by the Monarchy and the armed services. The lack of comment probably owes something to the circumstances of the events, which are still a little obscure, and something to a general belief that King's enterprise was the work of a deluded maverick. Whatever the truth of the Cecil King coup, it is hard to maintain that King himself was a lonely figure at this time. He had powerful supporters and contacts, and several of these were key City figures, including senior officials at the Bank of England. These men were in a position to do real damage to the government: there was, as they say, ...

45. Saddam Hussein on Trial [Lobster #56 (Winter 2008/9)]
... what Baghdad means for both Shi'a and Sunni Muslims.' US/UK invaders deviously encouraged fear among both sects that the other would seek hegemony, inspiring 'polarization and bloody strife' (p. 35). Saddam Hussein joined a failed Ba'athist conspiracy in 1959 to assassinate President Quasim, who had gained power the year before in a nationalist coup that killed the Iraqi royal family and the prime minister. Quasim himself was ousted in 1963. In 1968 another coup brought Saddam Hussein's faction of the Ba'athist party into power. The leaders took advantage of CIA help, but Al-Ani argues that they remained independent of US influence. The new administration created, on the basis of nationalised oil ...

... , loser to Kennedy in the 1952 Senate race, Richard Nixon's running mate in 1960, and appointed by Kennedy as Ambassador to Vietnam, possibly to keep him out of the running for the 1964 Republican presidential nomination. Lodge would drag his heels at reaching any accommodation with Vietnam's President Diem, while the CIA's Lucien Conein was busy organising the coup against him, just as the generals dragged their feet on troop withdrawal. With the CIA engineering 'Quiet American' style terrorism, bombing a Buddhist monastery in Hue to make it look like the Catholic Diem was responsible, they could back Kennedy into a position from which he could not escape, exactly as they hoped had occurred with the ...

47. Briefly [Lobster #56 (Winter 2008/9)]
... warrior, supporter of American corporate imperialism. This is strikingly clear not least in US policy towards Latin America. Klein simply omits JFK's Alliance for Progress. Yes, it achieved little in its short life but symbolically it was of huge significance; and LBJ's prompt dumping of the policy and the subsequent US support for a wave of repression and coups showed how much it might have mattered. Does the perception of JFK matter? Compared to global warming, no, of course not. But that isn't the only item on the agenda. I think it does matter. Because there is another America beyond Dumb-fuckistan and the know-nothing culture of its white working-class (and that isn't going away ...

... Minister. Liddell, like his wife's father, gravitated to a Brussels job when Mandelson became an EU commissioner. Lord Thomson, who shared his son-in-law's strong interest in defence and Europe, became a European commissioner in 1972, one of the many Atlanticist Gaitskellites to find the Labour Party an increasingly inhospitable home as the Vietnam War, the Chile coup, and other US foreign policies failed to chime with younger party members as they had with Thomson's older post-war and early Cold War generation. Lord Thomson finished his life as a Liberal Democrat and, apart from several business interests, had a spell chairing the Independent Broadcasting Authority. Lord Holme of Cheltenham, who chaired the successor Broadcasting Standards ...

... outside of the files of the Special Branch.(11) Hosken does not spell out either the curious mindset of the ultra-left in the 1970s or how rational at the time some of their ultimately irrational views may have seemed.(12)Knight and Livingstone were operating during a time when the Allende government had been overthrown in a CIA-backed coup and the Salazar regime in Portugal had collapsed overnight in 1974, to give but two examples of dramatic change during those years. Something like this happening in the UK through a combination, perhaps, of instability in Northern Ireland, industrial relations problems and general economic difficulties, exercised the imagination of many during this period; and was by ...

... worth the money they paid to him.'(15) Harken's fortunes picked up around about the time George Bush Snr. won the keys to the White House. A major investment came from Harvard University's endowment fund, on whose board of directors sat an old Bush family friend, Robert Stone Jnr. Then in 1990 came Harken's biggest coup winning a Bahrain deal against bids from oil giants Amoco and Chevron. This was despite the fact that Harken had never been engaged in international oil exploration before, and would need a significant injection of cash to be able to undertake the work. It seems that in preparation for this deal, Harken established an offshore subsidiary in 1989, ...
