books i’m reading

You can get this from Amazon, surprisingly easily. The author is an ex Conservatve MEP, but he seems to have grasped that any lingering political preferences he may have cherished in those days are irrelevant. Like Sibel Edmonds, he starts with Turkey and the heroin trails that run through Turkey into Europe, protected by the CIA and NATO. He ventures into truly weird territory, as for instance the theory that the Brazilian electrician Jean Charles de Menezes was murdered by London police because he knew too much about the rigging of the electricity supply to the London Underground train system prior to the false flag ‘Islamic terror bombings’ known as 7/7. And much more of this kind – RB


Gladio: NATO’s Dagger At The Heart of Europe – The Pentagon-Mafia-Nazi Terror Axis
Category: Conspiracy, False Flag Terror, Fascism, War
Author: Richard Cottrell


“The non-fiction corollary to The Millenium Trilogy.” Wet works and false flags, assassinations and subversion, pin Europe down as a US colony. NATO death squads masquerade as a rearguard against a possible Communist takeover, but are in reality a hideous cancer poisoning European democracy. NATO’s dirty war projects have included the Italian Strategy of Tension, the Red Brigades and Baader Meinhof/Red Army Faction, the Banco Ambrosiano scandal, the deaths of Italian ex-PM Aldo Moro, banker Roberto Calvi, media magnate Robert Maxwell, Swedish PM Olaf Palme, and “The Umbrella Murder;” also the attempt on Pope John Paul II’s life; the sex snare set for British PM Harold Wilson, and the Cyprus partition and genocide. Gladio architect Lyman Lemnitzer is implicated in the 1944 reintroduction of the Mafia into Sicily and the murder of the Kennedy brothers. Covert NATO operations were behind Solidarnosc, the fall of the Soviet Union, the color revolutions of Eastern Europe and North Africa, and the massacres of Aug 2011 in Norway and Libya.

    I don’t know what you mean by ‘not western perspective’, really. Doubtless there are Ba’athist histories in Arabic. What I would look for is a ‘scholarly perspective’, though I know this is a bit of an impossible ideal. There is no ultimate ‘objectivity’ even for ‘scholars’. Anyway, you can browse the contents of this, and probably read a chapter or two for free:

    sweet thank you, what i mean by not western perspective is the demonizing of Syria since WW2 (maybe even before). am thinking Assad’s father was not the man west makes him out to be and i want truth, also Nasser

    It’s worth bearing in mind that anti-imperialist nationalist parties tend to fall more or less into the ‘fascist’ category in the eyes of western political scientists, which makes them easy to demonise. Up to a point, ‘fascism’ is a natural response to imperialist encirclement. But at the same time it is fanatically antileft, because it sees all forms of leftism as enemies within. It is based on an alliance of nationalist-minded entrepreneurs and army officers. Communists have tended to reciprocate by developing trade unions with revolutionary fantasies. So the two extremes feed on each other. This makes them ripe for CIA/MI6 destabilisation. And that’s before you factor in the religious parties, which also, arguably, belong to western covert ops. So you end up with quite a strong case for anti-imperialist fascist parties, and damn the unions. If you take Egypt today, it’s impossible to know where popular left parties resisting the MB government end, and western covert ops begin.

    thank you, very true on Egypt … and what is happening in Tunisia, did Qatar or someone send in the “salafists” to control the revolution there as well, or were they already there, and if so why the violence now on “2nd” revolution?

    I must recommend Said Aburish’s books, and since you mention Nasser, Aburish’s magnum opus, his last major work which evidently cost him dearly, was his unflinching biography of Nasser. It contains an amazing revelation regarding the long-time sponsorship of the MB by the CIA and MI6, from which I made some selections here.

    You’ll enjoy the comments to that, as well. Helvena is so good on that thread, I almost want her back…

    one more thought on MB, the new Somalia puppet president is also part of … it looks like they plan on expanding MB across Africa

    To be honest, that Cottrell book sounds a bit duff. There’s a review of it in the current Lobster – you know where to find it. ” Not too bothered about evidence” would be the minimum charges.

    But something in Ramsay’s review struck me as odd (odder than usual):

    “ He thinks the 7/7 London Tube-bus bombings was a phoney (though isn’t sure if it was Gladio or not) and offers some of the usual critique of the official version. As others have before him, Cottrell makes much of the Peter Power story. Former Met officer Power had been running a desk-based terrorism exercise on 7/7 which eerily echoed the events of that day, notably that the Tube stations in his exercise were those chosen for the real explosions. Cottrell spends almost two pages trying to portray this as something sinister. But the problem with all attempts to make something of this is that Power was a volunteer; he rang BBC Radio 5 Live on the afternoon of 7/7 to report this creepy coincidence. I was listening at the time. “

    I don’t know much about 7/7. I went through a phase of checking out the skeptics views years ago, and since then I’ve been happy to let them get on with it, so though I’ve heard there were terror-training exercises that day, the details have always been fuzzy; but none of the above rings a bell. Maybe it’s just my ignorance. And why does Porter being a volunteer rule out ‘making anything of this?’. Like I said, a bit odd.

    well, like I said, I’m reading it. I only got past the first chapter so far. But some of the books Prog Press do are absolute crap, generally of a religious sort, eg Guy Carr, who is a conspiracy classic but an intelligence officer himself, obsessed with godless communism, the antichrist, etc., ‘David Livingstone’, or Henry Makow, who is sort of bogus in some unspecifiable way, or the various what I call ‘Illuminoid’ writers, who are usually christians. Tarpey himself is a christian though obviously a very left inclined one. Presumably Larouche is a christian. It comes with the territory. I spent years on Peter Myers’ mailing list discussing conspirology. It’s not an exact science.

    Just to make my point crystal clear, I shall add: Chossudovsky seems to me to be a christian; Peter Dale Scott is a christian; Said Aburish was born into a Palestinian Muslim family but became a Quaker. Most respectable people of our parents’ generation belonged to their culturally normative religions, or converted to other equally ‘respectable’ religions. Marxists were and are fairly uncommon. James Petras is a marxist, I think. But it’s not culturally accepted in our parents’ world, it’s a ‘marginal’ phenomenon. People couldn’t, and still can’t, be atheists of any sort, or pagans of any sort, and be accepted by their national ‘establishments’. Quakers are just this side of ‘respectability’; theists are not, because theism without a specified, ‘respectable’ god is pagan. Interestingly, it also applies to freemasonry, at least of the anglo-saxon variety: you can’t become a mason unless you belong to one of the ‘respectable’ religions. These are all indispensable political constraints. The systems of civilisation and culture require them.
