31. Reflections on the 'cult of the offensive' [Lobster #57 (Summer 2009)]
... the nuclear threat from the Soviet Union by pre-emptive first strike on Soviet nuclear facilities, before they were fully operational. Although subject to highly detailed planning, however, the protagonists of 'Operation Dropshot' were restrained by more rational voices in their aim to 'reduce the Soviet Union to a smouldering, irradiated ruin. ' The 1962 Cuba missile crisis – during which US president Kennedy's successful efforts to rein in the pre-emptive arguments of airforce chief (and 'Dropshot' author) Curtis LeMay were mirrored in the removal of operational missile control from local field commanders by Soviet leader Khrushchev – inaugurated a new era of nuclear restraint between the superpowers. In some ways technology itself had ...

Jean-Claude Trichet, head of the European Central Bank, will not be around until the end of the week..... ' Defence against which missiles?There is one section of the John Diamond book on the CIA, reviewed below, which deserves picking out. Diamond points out that the missile defence system which the US is deploying, apparently against 'rogue states', is not to defend the US against nuclear attack by 'rogue states' but to enable the US to intervene in ...

33. The CIA and the Culture of Failure [Lobster #57 (Summer 2009)]
... contest for the military-industrial-complex: no threat, no dollars. This puts the CIA's analysts under acute pressure. This large (500+ pages), nicely produced and thoroughly docu-mented book is a history of the most important of those recent contests, from the debate in the 1970s over the scale of the Soviet missile 'threat' through to the invasion of Iraq.(8 ) Essentially, the CIA has been in an impossible position. Tasked with surveill-ing the entire planet, which can't done, even with satellites, it was constantly attacked by the m-i -c and its allies for getting it wrong when it failed to predict ...

35. Briefly [Lobster #56 (Winter 2008/9)]
... I think it does matter. Because there is another America beyond Dumb-fuckistan and the know-nothing culture of its white working-class (and that isn't going away just because Obama won the election). We need that America and the contest over America's history is part of the wider struggle. The fact that after the Cuban missile crisis Kruschev and Kennedy were trying to reduce the influence of their military-industrial complexes and both failed (Kruschev's fall caused by JFK's death and the change of policies in America) is of great significance. JFK's American University speech in June 1963 in the midst of the Cold War is very striking.(11)As is the ...

... move to a more peaceful world, and by detailing the depth of the establishment's resistance to those ideas. His centrepiece and starting point is the famous speech at American University in June of 1963, where Kennedy stepped back publicly from his position as a reckless cold warrior who had marched the world to the brink of nuclear war during the Cuban Missile Crisis. Douglass goes from there into great detail, not only on negotiations with the Russians, and the test-ban treaty, or on opening a back-channel of communication with Cuba, but also lesser-known steps toward peace in Africa and southeast Asia, most notably the negotiated settlement with the Pathet Lao. Douglass spends ...

37. Tittle-tattle [Lobster #55 (Summer 2008)]
... alumnus who is a columnist on The Washington Post and a member of its board. Applebaum's husband, an old Oxford friend of Johnson and David Cameron from Bullingdon Club days, is Radek Sikorski, a former employee of Rupert Murdoch in Eastern Europe and of the American Enterprise Institute. Sikorski is now leading the charge for the siting of US missiles around Russia in his capacity as Poland's Foreign Minister. Mention Poland in British politics and the name Denis McShane MP springs to mind. The son of a Polish émigré, McShane was, like Sikorski, deeply involved in Solidarity there before he rose to prominence in international relations, in his case as Foreign Office minister. He didn't manage ...

Now it leads the Metrix Consortium, that has been charged with implementing New Labour's Defence Training Rationalisation programme, or privatisation as it should more properly be called. The consortium also includes the giant US company, Raytheon (the world's largest manufacturer of missiles, cluster bombs and depleted uranium munitions) and, most scandalously, the Open University. It is intended to take over the training, not just of the British Armed Forces, but to become a major player in a world market for privatised military training. The proposed St Athan's Academy, outside Cardiff, will, the consortium hopes ...

39. The Cecil King coup plot [Lobster #55 (Summer 2008)]
... and the TV dramatisation of Robert McCrum's underrated novel In The Secret State. In most of these narratives, the development of coercive trends in the British state is closely aligned to the development of the nuclear industry, at the expense of miners' jobs. This is both an expression of US strategic involvement in British politics (around the cruise missile issue) and Mrs Thatcher's desire to smash the trade unions.(10) In particular, I make the point that Troy Kennedy-Martin wrote Edge of Darkness after Rob Green started investigating the murder of his aunt, anti-nuclear activist Hilda Murrell, (11) who had incurred the unwelcome attention of Zeus Security and Sapphire ...

... 9/11, major countervailing regional powers have emerged (notably Russia and China), insurgency has proven harder and more costly to defeat than expected, and the economic correction is shifting power in one great lurch to the East. The bad bet This gamble on US leadership was built on faith not on facts. When Clinton sent cruise missiles into Sudan and Afghanistan, it was an action predicated on the widespread understanding that US firepower was so massive that noone would attract its wrath. The restraint against Saddam over Kuwait actually implied massive reserve power. But the whole system depended on everyone knowing just how far they could go – which was not very far. Saddam Hussein, ...
