31. Explaining the Iraq War (Book review) (Summer 2014) [Lobster #67 (Summer 2014) (free)] [Free Issue]
... Rumsfeld/Cheney war planning (and the congressional mid-term elections), rather than imminent Iraqi threat. Many seasoned national security heavyweights from previous US administrations – Brent Scocroft, James Baker, Lawrence Eagleburger – had dismissed administration claims of a dramatic rise in threat level,4 hence the virtually unprecedented efforts by the Bush regime in perception management and propaganda. This is downplayed by Harvey, as is the avowedly revolutionary transformation in US strategy brought in by Donald Rumsfeld to the Pentagon. The centrepiece here was a declaratory policy of, if needs be, pre- emptive war.5 Harvey himself, and many other observers, agree that a likely Gore administration approach to Iraq and post-911 events in ...

... Eritrea, Ethiopia, and Libya. Germany controlled Namibia, Togo/Togoland. And the United States controlled Liberia. The Dutch regions of South Africa gradually developed into colonies between the 17th and 20th centuries. The deep imperial interests, complex trade associations, and huge profits (potential or actual) meant that 'post- colonialism' – a propaganda word for reconstituted colonialism – was never going run smoothly, particularly in the face of rising Soviet influence in Ethiopia, Somalia, Angola, and elsewhere in the late 20th century. In the 21st century, no nation – not even China – comes close to challenging the United States in power and influence. The US's strength lies in ...

... I finally took the plunge and tried to make sense of the medical/forensic evidence which, hitherto, I had considered impenetrable. How good a job I have done.... Beyond hypocrisy There's a 1992 book by Edward Herman, Beyond Hypocrisy.37 I haven't read this and, though it's subtitled 'Decoding the news in an age of propaganda', the title is an apt shorthand description of American foreign policy. Thus the state which is apparently agitated about the use of 'chemical weapons' in Syria used depleted uranium and phosphorous in their assault on Iraq, drenched much of Vietnam and bits of Laos and Cambodia in Agent Orange, and – lest we forget – recruited the ...

... 1953 is the big example, but there are many others), abused human rights, broken everyone's laws, routinely spied on innocents, been penetrated by enemies as well as betrayed by their friends, and misled, even turned against, their own democracies. In their favour, signals intelligence probably shortened the Second World War, and covert propaganda may have helped bring down the Soviet Union (Jeffreys-Jones doesn't seem certain about this). The record is mixed, but it is far from reassuring. Hence the controversies these agencies so often stir up. (The current Edward Snowden affair – too late to be included in this book – isn't of course the first, or even ...

... '90s and Gennadiy Melikyan, previously Minister of Labour in the Russian Federation, 1992-1997. According to Olga Podoinitsya at VTB their role in sponsoring Calvert 22 is 'putting people in touch with the actual trends in the country and offering them a new perspective on Russia'. It looks rather as if the gallery is a Russian equivalent of the cultural propaganda work carried out abroad by the British Council. How ironic that it staged an exhibition about the values of good housing and 'alternative models of organising society' during the funeral of Margaret Thatcher – the most significant force in the destruction of council housing this country has yet seen. And curious, too, that Calvert 22 is located in ...

... Spinfluence the Hardcore Propaganda Manual for Controlling the Masses Nicholas McFarlane Carpet Bombing Culture, Darlington (UK) 2013, £9.95, h/b W hen I was offered this by the publisher I said it sounded a bit agitprop for Lobster's readers; and so it is. But it is worth noting. The author is a New Zealand designer1 and he and his publisher have a produced a very striking book. It is A5-sized, and very well bound; a beautiful little book, with about 140 unnumbered pages on thick paper.2 There are very few words in this: 34 on the first 4 pages and I would guess fewer than 5,000 in the entire thing ...

... convincing argument in favour of Spender knowing that Encounter was funded by the CIA. He had, after all, worked for the Political Warfare Executive during the war and was certainly not the naοve literateur, taken advantage of by Cold Warriors, that he presented himself as. Spender was, in fact, 'well integrated with the British Cold War propaganda effort'. Which brings us to MacColl, Littlewood and the Theatre Workshop. The released Theatre Workshop file, covering the years from 1951 to 1960, has some 250 pages. MI5 kept newspaper reviews of Theatre Workshop productions on file, indeed the file contains 'over 100 separate clippings – making the file now, in its own right ...

38. Conspiracy theory in America (Book review) (Summer 2013) [Lobster #65 Summer 2013) (free)] [Free Issue]
... back to the notorious 1967 memo issued by the CIA to all its agents and assets, with advice on how to respond to critics of the Warren Commission's verdict on the assassination of JFK: namely that those criticising Warren's conclusion should be described as 'conspiracy theorists'. The author notes that this turned out to be 'one of the most successful propaganda initiatives of all time'; the 'conspiracy- theory label has become a powerful smear that, in the name of reason, civility, and democracy, pre-empts public discourse, reinforces rather than dissolves disagreements, and undermines popular vigilance against abuses of power.’ Second, he tries to show that the authors of the American constitution and its subsequent ...

... a false consensus about the efficacy of fluoride has been created which survives because the evidence which refutes is never looked at by the public health officials and the dentistry industry which promote the use of fluoride. Compassionate Conservatism The always interesting William Clark has an analysis of so- called 'progressive Conservatism' on his site.5 1' ProgressiveConservatism, as a propaganda project, has two strands: the first is to capture the language of other parties to make the party seem progressive (this functions almost solely through repetition); secondly it seeks the obliteration of the distinction between elite direction and democratic initiative — to continue business as usual....The Progressive Conservatives (a very small group) have ...

... Iraq and intelligence Robin Ramsay I found this on my computer. It was obviously written around 2004 and, as far as I can see, was never used. M ichael Moore's film 'Fahrenheit 9/11' is great propaganda but, like all propaganda, it isn't about the truth. In a section mocking the so-called 'coalition of the willing' which supported the US invasion of Iraq, Moore listed several very small countries – but omitted Australia and the UK. For Australia and the UK the political decision to support the USA caused major ructions within their intelligence systems. As is now admitted, and was known by most independent analysts before the invasion, there was no ...
