Webster Tarpley at the Left Forum: Shoving the State Department Through a Blender

I've been following Webster Tarpley's analyses of the unfolding dramas in the political sphere for some time now. He is an indispensable analyst of the "color" revolutions, the Arab "spring", the assault on Syria and the coup/civil war in the Ukraine.

His explanations of events are always consistent and supported by a solid historical perspective showing how the present emerges from the past, and showing also what fundamental ideas inform the activities of people and parties on the world stage. His presentations are the antidote to the world's press secretaries and to the parrot press.

This talk, embedded below, is a tour d'horizon of the current world situation, keeping an eye on the ball as the US State Department has batted it from pillar to post through the past decade or so. It constitutes a nice scorecard that will make developments clear to people who might be trying to find out what is really going on in the game and who don't believe what the State Department has been telling the press to tell them.

An excellent presentation, both . This one should be bumped
so everybody can get that breath of fresh air from Webster.

I finally had the chance to view this whole thing late Saturday
night-- and his depth of knowledge is most gratifying while
he makes sense of century-old or older power plays.

It was worth it this time just to get the real skinny on the
roots of the Ukraine: and why it's really never started out as
more than the German General Staff's White Hen, than as a
country in its own right. Great focus comparing old putsches
to the current Grecian election results too

Webster has really been taking it to them in the last while. I can't think of an academic who has outperformed him in defense of civilization. He gives us the benefit of his learning and insight and he goes on to the streets (hopefully staying in a safe place) on demonstrations. He is an activist academic. Truth and humanity are his guiding stars.

He refuses to be a "Good German" like the sort of academic who stayed silent during the holocaust and stays silent now while the State Department sneaks like Iago across the word's stage making mischief. He's like a Benihana chef, knife in each hand, showing diners the proper way to fillet US foreign policy.

He should be declared a US national treasure and given free bus tickets for life.
