Adam Curtis's Blog refers to GOODIES AND BADDIES
Curtis wrote about the Libya Intervention:
"Some see it as a noble, disinterested use of Western power. Others see it as a smokescreen for a latter-day liberal imperialism."
on 29th Mar 2011, Bob Long commented:
Just been reading about Richard I and the crusades and something that comes across very strongly is that there can be a Great Project (capturing the Holy Lands, protecting innocents, whatever) which The People believe in completely sincerely and which becomes an opportunity for their leaders.
Those leaders can make great mileage by openly espousing the Great Project while using it to pursue their own ends.
In the Crusades, many leaders had no interest in freeing the Holy Lands but had a strong interest in getting a military foothold there - some arrived and promptly allied with the Muslims.
Likewise, many Muslims had not a jot of interest in who owned Jerusalem but fighting the infidel was a good route to political influence.
