Web Of Deceit

Mark Curtis

Overview

Britain has always showed its commitment to preventing wars, war crimes, and humanitarian crises; but it also paradoxically supports unjustifiable invasions, plans coups to overthrow democracies, and sells arms to repressive states.

British historian and journalist Mark Curtis argues that the colonial past of Britain manifests itself today in the form of its dual foreign policy. Curtis is the co-founder and editor of the media organization Declassified UK and has written several books on British Foreign Policy post World War II such as Britain's Collusion with Radical Islam and Unpeople: Britain's Secret Human Rights Abuses.

In Web of Deceit, Curtis criticizes British foreign policy of participating in US-led acts of aggression on foreign nations and its blind support for American policies on China, Israel, and Iran.

"For any government committed to promoting the highest ethical standards in its foreign policy, violating international law would surely be an ultimate sin. Under New Labour, however, violating international law has become as British as afternoon tea."
