81. The View from the Bridge [Lobster #46 (Winter 2003)]
... makes it very hard to steal elections, as anyone with experience of elections knows. .. .. .but someone's got to do it.The US magazine Mother Jones reported on 6 October: 'While the [75th] Exploitation Task Force [the first post-war US group to search for weap-ons of mass destruction in Iraq] worked out of an abandoned palace and the servants' housing quarters near Bagh-dad airport and remained short of vehicles, air support, computers and even electricity during the initial months of the weapons hunt, the Iraq Survey Group spent its first weeks installing air-conditioned trailers, a new dining facility, state-of- ...

82. Empire's Workshop (Book review) [Lobster #52 (Winter 2006/7)]
... 20th century, the left has been confronted with a US taking on the role of creating new democratic regimes, rather than sustaining the repressive status quo in the interests of stability. Some most strident in their critique of past policies now write of a resurgent American idealism, a new era, during which, for example, the people of Iraq have been released from a fear unparalleled in the Middle East. Grandin does not take on critics who have defended the US since 9/11, many of whom came to subsequent events through an appetite for polemics rather than from a serious interest in politics or history. His new book, Empire's Workshop, did arise, however, ...

... of anything the ANC's left apologists might have come up with. Fallen liberals?But Marshall is a little too all-inclusive and wholesale in his dismissal of a whole generation of former lefts, lumping them together as 'fallen liberals'. (3 )Is there really no difference between someone like Nick Cohen (who supported the war in Iraq for what might be called principled reasons) and people like David Aaronovitch and Stuart Hall (who began life as Stalinist reactionaries) and Peter Hitchens (who went from being a Trotskyist to a Tory)? During the late 1990s, Cohen was the most scrupulous critic of New Labour in the mainstream media and particularly good on the racist ...

84. Secret Justice in the Asil Nadir Trails (Winter 2013) [Lobster #66 (Winter 2013) (free)] [Free Article]
... , after Alan Clark's sensational evidence, allowed only disclosure of documents relating to policy-making within government departments. The judge in the 1992 Ordtec trial,1 His Honour Judge Stanley Spence, allowed PIIs to be invoked, thereby making it appear that the defendants were acting unlawfully and profiting from the export of fuses to an embargoed destination – Iraq. The PIIs were issued to prevent an officer of Special Branch, DS Wilkinson, from verifying that Paul Grecian had been acting with official backing in order to gather intelligence on Iraq. The Public Interest Immunity certificates were signed by Kenneth Baker and Peter Lilley, relying on an assessment by the prosecuting council that the documents in question were ...

... the British system seems to offer us a different sort of lurch, from crisis to crisis with one step forward and two steps back. Hindsight and Truth But hindsight is a wonderful thing. After the invasion of Poland, Suez, the intervention of the IMF in the 1970s, the arrival of Maggie Thatcher, the Falklands War, the Iraq War, there are always those who see an inevitability that may never have been there in the first place. So it is with the current problems of New Labour, the shift of economic power to the East, the global credit crisis and a food crisis that might turn tin-pot tribal insurgencies into the real thing – urban ...

... Centrally this an account of the increasingly feeble British state clinging to the Americans, willing to pay any humiliating military or diplomatic price to remain the school bully's best friend. Wear the figleaf of 'international support' for the US while the rest of the EU snigger behind their cocktails? Yes, sir. Send Tornado pilots to their death in Iraq on suicidal low-level bombing missions? Yes sir, if that's all we have to offer (especially, as Urban tells us, when large procurement programs hang on the missions). In the unattributed words of 'one of those considering the information', 'In the intelligence world the Americans have all the cards. Without them, ...

87. Feedback [Lobster #39 (Summer 2000)]
... 10 times as powerful as conventional ones, and the BLU-82 has been described as the nearest thing to a nuclear explosion. It would be an effective way of dispersing a chemical agent and destroying much of the evidence. (Why they would do this, given that the intention was to display a willingness to use chemical weapons against Iraq, is not explained). A total of eleven BLU-82s were used in Iraq on unspecified targets. The B-52 is quite capable of reaching the Gulf from Omaha with air-to-air refuelling. During the Kosovo conflict B-52s routinely flew 37-hour bombing missions from the US. The alternative for ...

88. The Labour Party, reviewed [Lobster #55 (Summer 2008)]
... included colonial wars, for example – hugely important for much of Phythian's period – and over international relations about other things than war – like the European Union. Instead we have chapters on the Cold War, the Korean War, Suez, Vietnam, the Falklands, the first Gulf War, the Bosnian and Kosovo interventions, and the present Iraq war, only; whose main purpose seem to be to explain how Labour foreign policy has metamorphosed so drastically recently, into its present 'humanitarian interventionist' guise. In other words, it is a tract for our times. There can be little doubt about the scale of the shift. In chapter one of the book Phythian lists the ...

89. The CIA: A history of torture [Lobster #54 (Winter 2007/8)]
... , the CIA has played a vital part in the maintenance of the American Empire. Torture Of particular interest today is the CIA's involvement in torture. While this is often portrayed as a post 9/11 development, the Agency's involvement in torture dates back to its foundation. Given this history, the CIA's involvement in torture in Afghanistan, Iraq and in the 'war on terror' more generally should not come as a surprise to anyone. It would have been astonishing were it not involved in torture. In his recent book, A Question of Torture, Alfred McCoy argues that from 1950 into the 1960s the CIA managed to perfect 'psychological torture... a major scientific turning ...
