111. Nixon's Nuclear Specter (Book review) (Winter 2015) [Lobster #70 (Winter 2015) (free)] [Free Article]
... not the equally serious crisis over NATO access to Berlin, for which the Pentagon offered a slate of nuclear options. Lyndon Johnson differentiated himself from his Republican opponent, Barry Goldwater, over the nuclear issue and issued no nuclear threats during his presidency. President Carter raised the possibility of a nuclear attack on Iran during the hostage crisis. President Reagan presided over a massive nuclear build-up which came close to accidental thermonuclear war during the misinterpreted Able Archer alert. President Clinton discussed using B61-11 tactical nuclear weapons against Libya. The second Bush administration threatened the use of the same nuclear weapons during the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq; the Obama administration contemplated their use during the ...

... ,(8 ) Roberts described Bush as 'thoughtful, charming and widely read'. Oh yes! Remember the briefing by the White press office last summer that Dubya was off for a holiday with Albert Camus' L'Étranger on his reading list?(9 ) There is a group of new books out in the US trying to represent Ronald Reagan as a wise and intelligent leader and not the dummy he appeared to be.(10) i There is section of the American political intelligentsia which is acutely discomfitted by the fact that genuinely stupid people can get to be president in the land of the brave and home of the free.

... his own opinions about Churchill, Roosevelt and US policy pre-1941 would have led to some awkward debate about the priorities of the Kennedy clan and could have detracted from Joseph's political ambitions for JFK and RFK. A detailed comparison of how the Kennedys generally wished to balance US domestic and international priorities, versus the balance sought by Nixon, Reagan and others, might well have provided readers of the Matthew Smith book with some material to flesh out his otherwise over simple conclusions. It is remarkable that a book as good as that written by Bryan Clough should only appear through a minor publisher. Notes [1 ] There is a theory that Kent had begun working for the Soviets ...

114. The Road to 9/11, reviewed [Lobster #54 (Winter 2007/8)]
... Yankees – symbolised by Kissinger (held over from Nixon) and the Trilateralists (who appeared in Jimmy Carter's administration which succeeded Ford in 1976). Although he declines to use the word, this thread is American fascism; or militarism, any way: the subversion or supplanting of democracy by the military. Scott follows this thread through the Reagan years and clandestine plans for the 'continuity of government' (COG) after a variety of hypothesised national emergencies (Oliver North was involved at this juncture) – the procedures by which democracy would be suspended and dissenters rounded-up and interned. He suspects, and tries to show by micro-analysis of the events around the White ...

... and salesman, although the latter word of course is not theirs. One of Carlyle's specialities is defence contracts, so it is not surprising that a high degree of crony capitalism is behind the firm's success. Amongst Carlyle's other advisors have been Bush's former Secretary of State James Baker III; Arthur Levitt, former chairman of the SEC; former Reagan administration Secretary of Defence, Frank Carlucci; ex budget chief Richard Darman; and former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. John Shalikasvilli. Similar politerati pepper Carlyle's international credentials, with such august names as John Major, the former British Prime Minister notable amongst them. These people do, of course, have to make ...

... visited Wellington in June 1987 on a "fact-finding mission" sponsored by the US embassy. In 1983 Mara responded to the overtures by announcing that nuclear ships were again welcome in Fiji. Later that year he became the first South Pacific head of state to get a full-scale red-carpet welcome at the White House. Reagan praised his "political courage" in allowing nuclear warships into Fiji. Secretary of State Shultz told him: "Your decision to restore access to United States naval vessels to your ports was both bold and wise, and peace in the Pacific is more secure because of it." Mara was declared "Pacific Man of the Year" ...

Officials from the president on down mentioned it at every opportunity as proof of the Sandinistas' immorality. "High level officials" of both Nicaragua and Cuba "have been personally implicated" in drug smuggling, Reagan said during the 1985 debates over contra aid (Reagan 1987:673 – 76). The State Department's Office of Public Diplomacy, which managed the administration's public-relations campaign against the Sandinistas, added the drug trafficking charge to its litany of Nicaragua's evil deeds, and distributed the photograph of Vaughn loading cocaine onto Seal's plane (U ...

As Cheney said, 'The problem is that the good Lord didn't see fit to always put oil and gas resources where there are democratic governments' such as Libya, or Burma for example. (19) In 1986, having launched from a British airfield his bomber raid on Colonel Gadhafi's family, President Reagan described the Libyan despot as a 'unique threat to free peoples', a 'rogue regime that advances its goals through the murder and maiming of innocent civilians'. Sanctions followed, but not for Halliburton. As Robert Bryce wrote in the Austin Chronicle: 'Since the mid-1980s, Gadhafi's "rogue regime" has paid Brown and Root ...

For the 52-year-old who is stepping into the shoes of the now-retired BBC TV veteran also followed him into membership of the British American Project (BAP), the informal network of aspiring Brits and Americans set up during the Reagan-Thatcher years to revive what the White House and No. 10 feared was a weakening 'special relationship' between the two countries.

' Similarly, the covert war against Nicaragua involved a campaign of terror waged by CIA mercenaries that was nevertheless presented to the world as a liberation struggle. President Ronald Reagan celebrated 'the contras' as men in the same mould as the 'Founding Fathers' of the United States. This did not stop him trying to subvert the Constitution the Founding Fathers had drawn up in order to conduct his illegal war, something conveniently forgotten in the eulogies that accompanied his death. Moreover, as Greg Grandin writes of the ...
