... continue to learn for many years. Noting that hindsight is a fine thing, he suggests that Britain and the United States should not have fought this war at all. In fact, given the earlier Soviet experience in Afghanistan, good sense should have been enough to avoid this entanglement. What we have to deal with in both Afghanistan and Iraq is American hubris, something into which Tony Blair's New Labour government wholly and disastrously bought. One criticism of the book is Farrell's readiness to sometimes accept official sophistries at face value. So, we are seriously told that Blair's government 'had a track record of committing Britain and its armed forces to saving strangers'. He takes Blair's supposed ...

It was decided that this would be kept under wraps because the West needed Iran and Syria's quiescence in the attack on Iraq. I was at the time Head of Maritime Section in the FCO's Aviation and Maritime Department. I was shown the report by the ...

(c ) www.lobster-magazine.co.uk (Issue 45) Summer 2003 Last | Contents | Next Issue 45 The Best Democracy Money Can Buy Greg Palast London: Robinson, 2003, 7.99, p/b Tom Easton As the war on Iraq has reminded us, journalism can be a dangerous vocation: the nearer a reporter, photographer or filmmaker gets to the action, the greater the risks run. Away from the shooting, the hazards are different, though only a little less potent, and Greg Palast experienced quite a few of them when he brought his brand of clever, witty and vigorous exposure to bear on the Blair government ...

... this is a kind of manifesto for that group. ( [4 ] ) It's a nice try, in a way, this pretence by Times columnist Kamm to be a left-winger. (For Kamm 'left-winger' means being a member of the Labour Party). It gives him a pitch 'left' support for the Iraq War/ 'war on terror' that the media are supposed to find interesting. You can probably guess his major arguments but you might be surprised by the boldness of his position. Here's the essential move he wants us to make: 'Iraq was not the biggest blunder since Suez; it was the most far-sighted and noble ...

... stab at the job in 2002, but suffered very heavy criticism for its 'anti-Semitism' from, among others, the then Labour general secretary and now Foreign Office minister and colleague of Lord Levy, David Triesman. In the week that I write this, the award-winning NS political editor Martin Bright describes 'Blair's twin shame of Iraq and cash for honours' as 'on the one hand, a foreign policy catastrophe; on the other, a classic domestic sleaze scandal'. Several American writers, including one of the two authors under review, try to investigate links between 'foreign policy catastrophe' and 'domestic sleaze'. One wonders how many years will pass before the ...

... able to defeat the Taliban, although their leadership escaped capture. Two things stand out about this success: first of all, the Northern Alliance would never have been able to defeat the Taliban without US support, which did rather suggest that they would need continued US support to remain in power. The shift in US attention and resources to Iraq was, from this point of view, a disaster. Second, the Northern Alliance was a gangster organisation of warlords and drug traffickers. Putting them in power was like invading Colombia to instal the drug cartels in government. And, once the Taliban were removed, opium production did indeed dramatically increase. These two factors together made the ...

... Minister at the FCO with responsibility for Israel and the Middle East was Ivan Lewis, vice chair of Labour Friends of Israel. Lewis's Wiki entry is worth a look. Former Private Eye editor, Richard Ingrams, noted that of the five members of the Great and the Good who are going to inquire into the Anglo-American assault on Iraq, two of them, historians Professor Lawrence Freedman (whose salary comes, at least in part, from the Ministry of Defence via King's College, London) and Sir Martin Gilbert are 'committed Zionists'; and thus we are not likely to get an honest examination of the Israelis' role in the disinformation leading up to the invasion ...

[1 line not declassified] 1 Oh Canada! Good old Canada! It didn't join the invasion of Iraq, did it? What an example to this country it set. Alas, it isn't true. While Canada may not have formally supported the invasion of Iraq, informally it did.

... also exposes the sheer hypocrisy of nuclear-armed nations demanding that another nation not have them – especially when that nation is practically surrounded by nuclear-armed states or bases. The problem of oil is, however, central to the Iranian situation. Iran has the second largest reserves of oil of any nation. The supply of oil from Iraq, which presumably the 2003 invasion was meant to secure, has been reduced by the continual sabotage by those resisting the US-led occupation, and all the while the global reserves of oil continue their steady depletion; and, even more worrying for the western democracies, most of which are dependent now on imported oil, countries such ...

In The Sunday Telegraph of 20 March he ran a piece, 'Iran plans secret "nuclear university" to train scientists', which was attributed to 'reports received by Western intelligence'.
