Provocations By William Bowles

21 November 2003

Wracking up the anté with a fortuitous bombing or two – given the parlous state of the ‘war on terror’ and global opposition to USUK operations – is an option we should not dismiss lightly.

Was the bombing in Istanbul a provocation? Before you accuse me of joining ‘conspiracy central’ consider that the CIA were tied directly to the terrorist group that bombed the US barracks in Beirut in 1982 through funding their operations and the use of provocations to destabilise and/or as a reason for intervention has a long tradition going all the way back to the Spanish-American War that led to the US colonising Cuba.

Well, according to who you listen to, there were either 70,000 (the police), 100-110,000 (the media) and 200,000 (the demo) marching yesterday (20/11/03). My fix on it is closer to 200,000. I arrived at Malet Street in central London about 30 minutes after the march started (around 2:30) due to the police stopping all the buses from coming into town. I got to Trafalgar Square by the most circuitous route I’ve ever taken on a march in London at around 6:30-7:00. We wound round back streets, along sidewalks (what kind of demo walks on the sidewalk?) Continue reading
