71. Islamic Imperialism: a history (book review) [Lobster #51 (Summer 2006)]
... happy with are two things. One is the book's rather cavalier way with the word imperialism, used here to cover anything from pan-Arabism, through foreign conquest, to religious proselytism. The second is its very one-sided account of recent events in the Middle East, so that, for example, the CIA's and MI6's covert toppling of Mossadeq in Iran in 1953 is only mentioned in passing, and the Zionists' seizure of Palestine on the grounds that they had lived there 2000 years before a classic case of colonialism, surely, whatever the excuses for it might be let alone some of the extreme measures some of them resorted to along the way, are not even problemetised ...

... begun well before the dismemberment of the Ottoman empire after that war, and other events that set the context for the subsequent Western interventions in the region. He not only draws on the history but talks to those who helped make it. These include Christopher 'Monty' Woodhouse whose covert activities in the region after the Second World War included the Iran coup of 1953. This is Fisk's observation on that 1997 meeting at Woodhouse's retirement home in Oxford: 'The coup against Mossadeq, the return of the Shah, was, in Woodhouse's mind, a holding operation, a postponement of history. There was also the little matter of the AIOC, the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company- later British Petroleum ...

73. Empire's Workshop (Book review) [Lobster #52 (Winter 2006/7)]
... any attempt to achieve social equity as leading at best to declining productivity and at worst political turmoil.' Such an attempt, we note, merits attention in present day Latin America, where the growth of the left, nationalist movements presents the US with its own dilemma or problem: how to confront a geopolitical threat (Venezuelan alliances with Iran, for instance) when the old methods of Reaganite-sponsored terror are no longer available.( [3]) Grandin's book is wide ranging and detailed in its historical accounts of US interventions, of the personalities and ideas involved, and the failures of free market economics. For the reader educated by valuable past Lobster articles on the influence ...

76. Saddam Hussein on Trial [Lobster #56 (Winter 2008/9)]
... fatal error, claims Al-Ani, was the trial for treason that same year, of dozens of members of the Ba'athist party, with 22 ultimately executed. After the party massacre, 'no one dared to question any-thing. This meant that the regime of Saddam Hussein acquired infallibility through fear and silence.' (p. 50) War with Iran was Saddam Hussein's second mistake. Egged on by the West, both sides prodigiously expended blood and treasure. Peace in 1988 was closely followed by widespread circulation of one of those strange books that mysteriously transform the global political atmosphere. Written under a pseudonym by an Iraqi architect who had spent much of his life outside the country, The ...

... 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 the President ...

There he began to meet other victims, among whom are former US military and intelligence personnel who were involved in, or claim to have been involved in, the various intelligence scandals of the Reagan/Bush years: October Surprise, Inslaw, BCCI, the arming of Iran and Iraq. And so Stich begins to learn about Mossad operations; factions within the CIA; assassination squads; drug dealing on a massive scale; corrupt politicians, judges etc. etc. He lists dozens of alleged CIA operations, personnel and front companies. This third section is the most interesting- and least satisfactory: (a ...

And because the 'national security' blanket could be thrown over arms sales, the payment of millions- maybe billions- of pounds of bribes and general ripping-off of the public purse could be done on the quiet. Hence Malasia and the Pergau dam fiasco; hence arming Iraq, Iran, Saudia Arabia, Indonesia and who knows which other scum-bag regimes; hence the huge subsidies of the arms industry by the British state. In the Public Interest Gerald James Little and Brown, London, 1995(1) Some of these events are described in great detail by Gerald James. This is an important book, perhaps a ...
