UG#693 - Social Destabilization Post WW2(Operation Phoenix to the War On Terror)

03-10-2014 18:12

A new speaker on the show, Douglas Valentine, outlines the CIA's development of "Operation Phoenix", which helps explain how the Police State in the USA today has been so rapidly rolled out after 9-11; social destabilization techniques which the CIA tried out in Vietnam and developed in Latin America in the 1970s are being applied in Mexico and increasingly in USA itself. In our second hour, we continue with more from FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds on Gladio Operation B in Turkey, and NATO's links with high level drug trafficking.

Hongkong: Tehran in a Cool Pool

03-10-2014 17:55

Large historical prototypes are rare, to speak of fitting ones. The more likely scenario is that, while everything is being done to exclude any direct repetition, the material limitations of that effort are the new environment in which the old conflict of ideas will reproduce. In its own historical reference to the cultural monstrosities of imperialist and colonialist Europe, dialectic materialism is used to talk of the tragedy and the farce. But occasionally such prototypes do occur as conscious moves. E. g. when when the Antifascist coalition of WWII broke up into the containment vessel of the Unitednations Security Council, the fault line running through the Nazi state in a surprise move on the model of 1938 (see Mar 15, 2014) was turned into a reenaction of the “limes” (though only for one generation rather than six or seven). But while the Roman wall was an offensive installation run by foreign mercenaries at a significant distance to any densely populated territories, what is to be drawn up as a historical prototype in this instance is an unequivocally defensive measure. Molotov served Ribbentrop the famous cocktail of one portion appeasement plus a double shot of red-coloured imperialism to change the “great game,” and maybe without that Leningrad might have fallen. Ulbricht drew Gehlen a line into the sand and preempted thermonuclear war in Europe before there was any “hotline.” And when the Soviet Union found the beginning of its end in Afghanistan, Khomeini showed a red line to Carter and prevented yet another military coup in Persia, laying the foundation for the current system of the Islamic Republic in which any ballot sheets are filtered by a structure of councils and meta-councils that freezes the country´s unresolved external fraud cases and is intended to shield elections from becoming a gateway to their extension.

The Bradley Public Inquiry And Air Pollution

02-10-2014 14:19

There is only one use for the coal to be mined at Bradley and that is to burn it. This press release details why doing so is going to lead to more premature deaths, more expensive health care, which we all have to pay for, and to the UK continuing to be in breach of European Law. These are additional reasons why UK Coal's application to opencast this coal should be rejected.

This is about NeoCons deregulating of everything. Main items first: the courts system has been scrapped. The system that did exist up to a few years ago is no longer. Under that system, which was near-accessible, at least up to certain stages which the nearly-citizenry could use. There was, at least some notional scope to put the claimant’s assertions before the court. That has been abolished,,,

UK Coal and the Bradley Public Inquiry

29-09-2014 13:23

UK Coal has now secured a £20m loan to tide it over in the short term. However the future of it's surface mines is far from cleat as they have been put up for sale. At the same time UK Coal is seeking new planning permissions, the next of which is via the Bradley Public Inquiry. One of our objections is that since we don't know who will be responsible for working the site if the Appeal is upheld that the appeal be rejected
