61. The view from the bridge [Lobster #54 (Winter 2007/8)]
... Georgia, Ukraine and Kyrgystan – the so-called 'colour coups'.(5 ) Knowing what the game is, the Russian state is taking steps to counter it. Hence, in part, the formation of the state-sponsored youth group Nashi (Russian for 'Our').(6 ) Similar activities are taking place in Iran. Hence the arrest, earlier this year, of Iranian academics with links to American-funded organisations.(7 )Similar techniques are being used in South America.(8 )Little of this is secret: the funding bodies have websites. For example, the National Endowment for Democracy, the major funnel of US tax dollars ...

... the Present Danger etc. in the 1970s – found a way round Congressional restrictions on covert operations (using proxies, such as the Safari Club) and got the contracts flowing again. En route they sabotaged Jimmy Carter in the same way that Nixon had sabotaged Hubert Humphrey in 1968: by doing a political deal with America's notional enemies (Iran in Carter's case; North Vietnam in Hum-phrey's) to prevent Democratic success in the run-up to the presidential elections. In a sense, as Scott acknowledges, this is partly an elaboration the Yankee-Cowboy conflict first so described by Carl Oglesby. But just as this story is almost entirely about men, it is ...

... the slaughter in Indonesia in 1965. Nonetheless, as Blum concedes, it is an interesting book. It is also a strikingly critical book. Weiner presents variations on themes of brutality and incompetence. In this version, the CIA was never any good, even in its early years. Even its early successes, the coups it ran in Iran and Guatemala, were close-run things, with the Agency and its allies/proxies more or less staggering over the finishing line, just ahead of chaos and failure; and its ability to generate intelligence on its targets, especially the Soviet Union, was virtually nil. Weiner also shows the Agency always lied to the politicians and ...

... West Province and included Central Asian elements. The Pakistani zone (Waziristan), in its turn, was not merely Islamist and tribal but it had relationships that spread back to the major cities of Pakistan and even into its military and intelligence services. Western operations in West Asia have to deal with a world beyond Afghanistan that encompasses Pakistan, Iran and Central Asia – as well as India with its massive Muslim population that sometimes chafes under the even more massive presence of aggressive Hindu nationalism. Russia, China, India and the superpower US are all as engaged in the local Great Game as ever they were in the days of the Tsar and Queen Victoria. None of this in ...

... of this is meticulously catalogued in Klein's important book. She also seems to grasp that this is being driven more by a crisis of finance and fictitious capital than by any coherent strategic overview suggested in references to any New World Order. It is unlikely that Foreign and Commonwealth Office bureaucrats would advise anything as stupid or reckless as an invasion of Iran. In fact, the FCO is likely to favour involving Iran in the running of Basra. However, the proliferation of influential think tanks in the private sector (often staffed by former Stalinists) is likely to influence executive government in overriding what their own experts have to tell them. We saw this with Bush and Blair either ignoring ...

... Home Secretary such as John Reid, arrested and expelled from the country, but are instead welcome guests, mixing freely with both New Labour and Conservative politicians as well as maintaining an intimate relationship with Britain's own security services.(3 ) The CIA's role in the overthrow of governments is well-known, beginning with the 1953 coup in Iran and the 1954 coup in Guatemala. Since then the organisation has been involved in coups in South Vietnam in 1963, in Brazil in 1964, in Indonesia in 1965, in Greece in 1967, in Chile in 1973 ( 'the other 9/11') and elsewhere. All of these involved the establishment of right-wing ...

67. Brands and Britannia [Lobster #54 (Winter 2007/8)]
... 'move on' – a loaded PR command/threat. Instead, government acknowledges the 'lessons learned'. You cannot get more 'authentic' than hubris. (4 ) Still in its infancy, is the emerging spin of US/UK failed diplomacy in the area, the latter running parallel to aggressive American and Russian confrontation c/o Iran and Kurdistan. See how the phrase 'acknowledgement of grievances' rises to the top of otherwise pacific language. It is an indication of overdue pragmatic acceptance of reality – addressing 'minds' (acknowledgement of grievance) rather than 'hearts' which have long gone. As a result, the construction of 'hearts and minds' spin becomes less significant ...

... to make serious headway across the Islamic world. The Palestine issue is not going to be solved within the necessary time frame, Iraq is not responding to 'surge' and is likely to see increased intervention by neighbouring powers, Turkey and Pakistan are going through a period of domestic instability and the West is trying to provoke a similar instability in Iran. Meanwhile, the intervention in Somalia has simply dispersed Islamist radicals, increasing Islamism in Eastern Africa and Northern Nigeria. The catalogue could go on. Most truly insurgent groups are small and localised but the mood 'out there' is one of a worthy cause that is managing to do something that has been prayed for by young Arab and ...
