The Imperial Anatomy of Al-Qaeda, Part III

This is Part III of the three-part series, ‘The Imperial Anatomy of Al-Qaeda’

Part 1: The Imperial Anatomy of Al-Qaeda. The CIA’s Drug-Running Terrorists and the “Arc of Crisis”

Part 2: Empire, Energy and Al-Qaeda: The Anglo-American Terror Network

The consequences of this will certainly affect not only the country’s political regime and its relations with other countries of Central Asia but also security of Russia, where hundreds of thousands of migrant workers arrive from Tajikistan each year…”

CIA in Honduras: the Practice of Selective Terror
“President of Honduras Manuel Zelaya was displaced slightly over a year ago in a coup staged by the local oligarchy and the US intelligence community. The coup came as a punishment for Zelaya’s alignment with H. Chavez and other populist Latin American leaders. Since the time, the news flow from Honduras abounds with stories of political assassinations, the victims being activists of trade unions, peasant and student organizations, and the National Popular Resistance Front opposing the pro-US regime of Porfirio Lobo…”

Tiberio GRAZIANI (Italy)
Geopolitics of Republican Italy
“The ongoing great geopolitical changes, mainly determined by Russia, could possibly enhance the strategic function of Italy in the Mediterranean Sea, just in the contest of the organization and stabilization of the new multi-polar system and of the potential Euro-Asian integration…”
