There’s been a lot of Regime Change around in the last few years. One might even think it had become a nasty habit: Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Ukraine, Syria, Venezuela. These are just the most recent. It was pointed out recently that if you count just those in South and Central America since the 50’s, it’s twelve. Add in the overthrow of Mossadegh in Iran in 1953 and it seems like we can’t get enough of it. We certainly seem to think we have a right to engineer it wherever we like. But of course those who support it always insist we only do it because it ‘our duty to help the oppressed.’ So I would like to look at this peculiar form of Western benevolence. First in general and then at a hypothetical case – Regime Change in the UK.
General Sir Walter Walker and the Wilson Government was pretty close run thing,
Tory Lies and Coups Past and Present, Cecil King, Murdoch, and Rigging elections
and also the 1951 election which was remarkably similar to 2017.
