91. America, Israel and the Israel lobby [Lobster #57 (Summer 2009)]
... Israel lobby are formidable. The authors point out that the strength of this grouping is such that it enables Israel to defy US policy on the not particularly frequent occasions that a US president tries to advocate a contrary view. Thus, for instance, attempts to resolve the occupation of the Golan Heights are invariably ignored, delayed or wrecked. Iraq Perhaps the most interesting chapter in the book deals with the 2003 invasion of Iraq which, the authors argue, was triggered by intense Israeli lobbying of the US and the provision by Israel of misleading intelligence to back up the view that an invasion and war was urgently required. It is conclusively demonstrated by Mearsheimer and Walt that neither oil ...

Empires Apart: America And Russia From The Vikings To Iraq Brian Landers Hove: Picnic Publishing, 2009, £15, p/b Reviewed by John McFall Is America an empire? Tsarist Russia and its Soviet successor were certainly seen as such through western eyes. That America is not shows the heavily ideologised world through which we frame history. In a bold sweep of historical comparison of the two world titans, Mr Landers attempts, in his first major work, to correct such ideological distortions in an agnostic, sardonic and wonder-fully written treatment of his subject ...

93. Reflections on the 'cult of the offensive' [Lobster #57 (Summer 2009)]
... : pre-emption itself as a constant trope in the history of warfare; the radical recrudescence of the concept after the advent of nuclear weapons; the rising influence of Israeli concepts of war on US defence doctrine; and the aggregation of all of these in the combination of political and strategic factors leading the Bush administration in the run up to the Iraq war. The term 'war on terror' (WoT) has been widely derided as both epistemologically illiterate and a transparent catchall for demagogy and the pursuit of long-standing agendas for militarism and crackdowns on civil liberties. There is also, however, a sense in which WoT represents a functioning military concept for the US, which can be located ...

94. Why are we with Uncle Sam? [Lobster #57 (Summer 2009)]
... you don't get hit but it is basically a degrading role, characterised by public grovelling and private bad-mouthing. Which is what the British do to the Americans: they say nothing in public until the Americans fuck-up and then they mutter in the corner about the dumb, incompetent, cowboy Yanks, as they did most recently over the debacle in Iraq. You may be thinking that I am anti-American. Not so: but I am anti-American foreign policy. My parents were in the Communist Party until the Soviet invasion of Hungary in 1956; and I grew up in a climate in which the instinctive reaction to any foreign policy issue was: the Soviets are right and the Americans are ...

95. Politics and Paranoia [Lobster #57 (Summer 2009)]
... to the party's members, via annual conference, having any say at all in policy making. I gave up on the Labour Party in 1992 with the arrival of John Smith as leader and my involvement declined from being branch secretary and local election agent to being just another inactive member, unable to cut the cord. I eventually resigned over Iraq. A conspiracy theorist? Much of the content of this book would be described as conspir-acy theories by the major media. I would reject that and echoing at least one of the talks in here on conspiracy theories I would say that I am not a conspiracy theorist but I am interested in theories about conspiracies. But there are some ...

96. Terrorism and Intelligence in Australia [Lobster #57 (Summer 2009)]
... bills, legislative changes, occas-ional events in parliament when the spooks' activities arose there even some-one with as little knowledge about the subject as me can see that some of the story is missing. It's not that the author is afraid of making political comments. He is properly scathing about the events surrounding the Australian support for the invasion of Iraq and the persecution of the lone Australian intelligence analyst willing to say that the emperor had no clothes on; and he writes this for example on p. 238: 'Australia has fought in many regional war in recent years, but the conjoining of the military and intelligence agencies did not occur to the same extent when faced with these previous ...

... the first Jonathan Institute gathering in 1979( Lobster 47 et seq), has just been returned to power and now has alongside him the virulently anti-Arab Avigdor Lieberman. For the moment the recession and the election of Barack Obama seem to have punctured the efforts of Netanyahu to use the 'war on terror' mindset and network that took us into Iraq into launching a war upon Iran. But if he succeeds in that effort, we will see whether the Community Security Trust and the Board of Deputies of British Jews again report a rise in antisemitism. I read these books after hearing Sir Gerald Kaufman in the Commons denounce Israeli attacks on Gaza. He described the murder of his Polish ...

98. Saddam Hussein on Trial [Lobster #56 (Winter 2008/9)]
... Ba'athist party, but left after it broke into warring factions, each open to compromise with imperialism or Arab reaction. With a degree in microwave communication, Al-Ani found employment at Baghdad University in 1973. He fell victim a year later to a Ba'athist dictat that barred professors married to foreigners. After refusing to spy on foreign companies operating in Iraq, Al-Ani voyaged in 1980 with his young family to Finland. Though strongly opposed to the Ba'athists, Al-Ani wondered how any Iraqi in the 1980s and 1990s could favour toppling Saddam Hussein's government under conditions of imperialist threat. Rooting out the thirty-year Ba'athist authority, he believed, could only end in chaos and destruction. Iraq's slow strangulation under ...

New Labour, British democracy and the invasion of Iraq (London: Zed Books, 2006), argues that New Labour wanted regime change in Iraq before Bush and before 9/11 and that the production of the WMD Dossier was one of the key components of a broader political strategy designed to achieve that aim.(1) Understanding intelligence Andrew Defty considers the role of Parliament and Parliamentary Committees in allowing parliamentarians to develop expertise in particular policy areas and questions whether the Intelligence and Security Committee has ...

... newsworthy) implications. It is important to be reminded here of the current political context: the major focus of 'the war on terror' since 2001 has, by far, been on 'weapons of mass destruction' in particular those relying on nuclear technology. And all of the nations that have been on the 'hit list' at various points Iraq, Iran, Libya and North Korea had dealings with the Khan network. In the most awful irony, of those nations it was Iraq that had the most minimal contact; the others purchased services, components or information from the network, while the Iraqi regime only held a meeting with a Khan representative, subsequently declining their services, ...
