CIA Built Tunnels That Were Bombed In Afghanistan

Hat tip to Edward Snowden on his Twitter feed; he points out that the tunnels that were just bombed in Afghanistan were built by the CIA in the 1980’s: http://www.nytimes.com/2005/09/11/magazine/lost-at-tora-bora.html?_r=0 “The first time bin Laden had seen the Tora Bora caves, he had been a young mujahedeen fighter and a recent university graduate with a […]

Professor Alfred McCoy On The Politics Of Heroin

Professor Alfred McCoy is recognized as being one of the foremost experts on the politics of Heroin, a drug making a surging comeback after largely being shamed out of popular culture for decades. The availability of opiate-related pills has brought on demand for the dragon drug, thought to be cheaper and easier to obtain once […]

The Secret Government, Drugs and Terrorism

The Secret Government, Drugs and Terrorism

It’s always been said that wherever the CIA goes, drugs come back. That may be a simplification. Evidence is mounting to suggest that the heroin trade has gone global, not just in its distribution, but in the ability of the players to stage world-changing events. The Russian-centric website Strategic Culture.org has this report on Afghan […]

Did “They” Get to Journalist Michael Hastings?

  • Review: “The Socratic Method” – By Farnsworth
    Review: The Socratic Method By Ward Farnsworth Many months ago, I decided I needed to get into some classic books that I had never read in school. One such book was “The Republic” by Plato. Well, that didn’t last long. I was overwhelmed by the archaic language and ancient Greek names. I can be pretty […]
  • Reviews: Sea Monsters & Sasquatch
    Regular readers might know that I can’t just do dystopian analysis of current events all the time; sometimes I have to get into something completely different. With regard to that, I have reviewed a few Bigfoot books, and picked up some classic novels as well as books on philosophy. Today we take a look at […]
  • Review: Ukraine In The Crossfire
    I was very pleased to get a copy of “Ukraine In The Crossfire”, by Chris Kaspar De Ploeg. This book catalogs the rise of the nationalist far-right Nazis in Ukraine, as well as their well known WW 2 history. This book is an important reference for the set-up of Ukraine as a U.S./NATO pawn, who […]
  • Review: “States Of Emergency”
    There is some surprisingly good analysis appearing that goes a long way to explaining just how we ended up in this global meltdown, and from several sources I am reading, it appears to be on purpose. One such resource is the new book “States Of Emergency” by a Dutch professor named Kees Van Der Pijl. […]
  • The Civil War In The United States – By Marx & Engels
    I should start by saying that this is the first I have read of Marx, and honestly I haven’t studied deep into the American Civil War, so this book was very interesting to me. The book consists of written exchanges between Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, with a few others. It also includes passages from […]
