Unpeople Victims of British Policy Review ☆ 2 Britain is complicit in the deaths of ten million peopleThese are Unpeople those whose lives are seen as expendable in the pursuit of Britain's economic and political goalsIn Unpeople Mark Curtis shows that the Blair government is deepening its support for many states promoting terrorism and using evidence unearthed from formerly secret documents reveals for the first time the hidden history of unethica. My review of this may go off on a tangent at some stage given the important issues this book raises Firstly it is a very well researched work detailing historic British abuses of power in the foreign policy arena to further our national interests abroad Much of the information here is derived from official declassified papers and so cannot be termed as biased or misreportedIt was a timely book when it was released in 2004 at the height of popular opposition to the invasion of Ira Though the first two chapters concern Ira and the illegal invasion thereof this book sets out to prove that far from being a single aberration the dark manoeuvrings that culminated in the 2003 invasion of a sovereign nation is in fact the continuation of an age old very British style of foreign policy that of military intervention and destabilisation of other states to further the economic and geopolitical goals of the UK GovernmentWhat stands out for me in all of this is the hypocrisy of some of the anti Ira war commentators whose sense of that injustice is all too noticeable when analysed alongside their supportive intransigence on other and in many cases worse atrocities committed in their names as citizens of this country The list of interventions is seemingly endless and these are only the ones we know about Since 1945 our government is responsible or in some way culpable for around 10000000 civilian deaths according to the research in this book Clearly this is a ball park figure and the real number could be slightly lower or much much higher My money would be on an overall increase in that estimate when the amount of countries is taken in to account whose regimes we supported generally didn t make too good a job of keeping accurate data on civilian casualties Malaya Kenya Iran British Guiana Oman Indonesia twice Vietnam Yemen Ira numerous times Afghanistan Kurdistan Columbia Chagos Islands Nigeria Biafra Uganda Chile Yugoslavia Sierra Leone and Palestine I may have missed some there but it s already an extensive listHow can we go on thinking that we are one of the good guys of global politics when our history shows us to be anything but And how can we continue to support our political parties all of whom have blood on their hands innocent blood Every single one of the wars we have engaged in or regimes we have propped up has been to aid the progression of British business whether they were mining corporations oil firms or an intervention to secure a generally ideological sheen that enabled the free market to reign in the third worldThere are no selfless invasions or plainly humanitarian military actions if there were we would long ago have invaded China Israel Russia India and the United States all of whom are past masters at oppression and human rights abuses Many of the problems we face now in the middle east are as a result of our armies propping up the regimes of militant Islamist governments when Communism was the larger bogeyman on the horizon For anyone who was against the war in Ira well done Give yourself a little pat on the back and then open your eyes and look at British influence on the wider world Everywhere you look you will see chaos death and destruction and all of it was carried out with your tacit support either overtly or because of your and my laziness in observing what the hell our Government does in the big bad world We re not the good guys I m afraid Une ténébreuse affaire expendable in the pursuit of Britain's Der KlientDer Regenmacher economic and political goalsIn Unpeople Mark Curtis shows that the Blair government is deepening its support for many states promoting terrorism and using Entfernung von der TruppeAls der Krieg ausbrach evidence unearthed from formerly secret documents reveals for the first time the hidden history of unethica.
