”I had to leave my dog in Iran’ – UK ambassador, BBC News, 2 December 2011
If I remember correctly, my mother told me that it was the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War in 1936 that prompted her to join the British Communist Party.

I suppose because the average Libyan is now doomed to years of social chaos, misery and poverty, western consensus media have redoubled their efforts to remind us just how heinous Gaddafi was. I know it’s near to useless to try to hold them responsible or awaken any vestigial conscience lurking in a journalist’s tiny head, but I make the effort occasionally. The specific story I emailed the BBC about is below but the overall coverage is the irritant. Continue reading

For European bankers, it’s a war for Libya’s Gold. For oil corporations, it’s a war for Cheap Crude (now threatening to destroy Libya’s oil infrastructure, just like Iraq). But for Libya’s women, it’s a fierce, knock down battle over the Abaya— an Islamic style of dress that critics say deprives women of self-expression and identity.

I’m sure that somewhere, in a university or institute, researchers have produced an analysis that measures the rise in the number of armed conflicts as a ratio of the increase in economic instability as capitalism goes into one of its periodic meltdowns. Meltdowns that almost invariably end in large-scale war/s as a means of consuming surplus capital, taking out competitors, getting rid of surplus labour, grabbing new markets, extending the sphere of empire… yada, yada, yada…
