... . Buy ExxonMobil, Andarko, or Valero shares and you can't go wrong. Well, yes given ExxonMobil's recent quarterly $5 billion profits, one might well agree. The oil price is high due to limited refining capacity. In 1980 there were 425 refineries across America: there are 176 today. His understanding of the oil politics of Iraq is good and he admits the rebuilding programme has failed. You may puzzle why Iraqi oil is a 'prize' while the cost of the war exceeds $325 billion to date and may hit $2 trillion before the country can return to any semblance of normality; yet the $20 billion of US reconstruction money has failed to provide ...

... mark. ' (Heath fired 'Soviet stooge' Tory', Peter Day, The Observer 26 May 2002) In his comment on this Bethell resisted the temptation to point that it was Jellicoe who was the 'risk', resigning in 1973 when found to be, as they used to say, consorting with prostitutes. Tell me lies about Iraq The Iraq thing is about oil. If Iraq had no oil the US would not be interested. The US is going to buy or steal - mostly, I guess, steal - every last barrel of oil on earth to keep its cars and its air-conditioning units running. Even though everyone - everyone bar Tony Blair, ...

... to me. Not a lot, I would guess. These ambiguities leave much room for discussion. Glees and Davies are academics and run the Brunel Centre for Intelligence and Security Studies. Morrison was a career intelligence officer who was the ISC's researcher for five years until fired for having the temerity to express minor dissent from the government line on Iraq, and he is now at the Brunel Centre. Between them they have much academic and practical knowledge. The authors are essentially conservative defenders of the British security and intelligence system. It isn't that they aren't critical; it's just that they don't want to, or are unable to, deal with the reality of that system. In ...

44. Pretexts [Lobster #46 (Winter 2003)]
... wishful thinking from the military whose lies, being self-deceptions, they would not recognise as deliberate falsehoods. Given the events of 2002/2003, it is clear that not much has been learnt from history. With the Cold War over, and with a far less capable opponent, it may have seemed today as if war on Iraq would be an open and shut case without all the attendant risks the US faced in 1964. But what has really changed? One of the lessons about Vietnam that Ellsberg himself learnt whilst reading the Pentagon papers was: 'Since at least the late 1940s there had probably never been a year when political violence in Vietnam would have reached or ...

... the toxic dust that billowed across New York City that day. Some first responders and others working and living near Ground Zero barely alive now will have died come the 16th anniversary in 2017.1 3 Across the world the casualties from the state of almost permanent war that followed 11 September 2001 are vastly higher. Most killed in Afghanistan, Iraq and other parts of the Middle East were as innocent as those leaving their East Coast homes that sunny morning only to leap to their deaths from the burning Twin Towers. Or – and this is a lesser-known truth – for over 1,000 of them to be totally vaporized in their destruction shortly afterwards.1 4 The ...

... the years (The French Secret Services, The Conquest of Morocco, The Conquest of the Sahara and more), but nothing quite like this. It was conceived, he tells us, 'in the classrooms of the Naval Postgraduate School where I teach company and field grade US and international officers'. Here he encountered officers newly returned from Iraq and Afghanistan who were 'not only unsettled by their experiences in these countries, but also persuaded that the hearts and minds counterinsurgency doctrines they were despatched to apply in 2007 were idealistic, when not naïve, impracticable, unworkable and perhaps institutionally fraudulent. In short, they had been sent on a murderous errand equipped with a counterfeit doctrine' ...

... , h/b . No price is stated but it's around $30 on-line. In The Guardian on 4 March 2009 Will-iam Dalrymple wrote: 'Eight years of neocon foreign policies have been a spectacular disaster for American interests in the Islamic world, leading to the advance of Hamas and Hezboll-ah, the wreckage of Iraq, with more than two million external refugees and the ethnic cleansing of its Christian population, the rise of Iran as a major regional power, and now the implosion of Afghanistan and Pakistan, prob-ably the most dangerous develop-ment of all.

... seriously by anyone familiar with the events of the last twenty years. One problem, of course, is the number of the Labour Party's new members who are completely unaware of the Labour Party's actual history in office; but that is another matter. Which brings us to Blair's wars. How does Brown deal with British involvement in Afghanistan and Iraq, fighting in the service of the American Empire? In his memoir, Brown remembers how on 11 September 2001 he had 'cried at the carnage inflicted on our closest ally'. There is no reason to doubt this claim because Brown was absolutely devoted to the United States and regarded US interests as indistinguishable from those of Britain. As ...

It takes Hollywood in a new direction:one version of a movie does not work for all markets, therefore produce two.( [2 ] ) US government PR personnel do not have the same luxury. This is principally because the executive they serve flaunted its legitimacy of action in Iraq by single messaging e.g . insurgents are terrorists an advertising technique, rather than a PR one.( [3 ] ) Cold War PR The US executive's Iraq PR collapsed because, unlike during the Cold War, it unravelled, along with the horrors, in real time.
