Our Interesting Times is linked, always, in the sidebar of this blog.
I like Tim Kelly's interview style.
"Guido Giacomo Preparata joins Our Interesting Times to discuss his book Conjuring Hitler: How Britain and America made the Third Reich. We talk about how Great Britain fomented two world wars to prevent an alliance forming between Germany and Russia and how the rise of National Socialism in Germany was not an aberration or accident of history but the result of Anglo-American financial support and intrigue"Reminscent of the situation in Syria, where conditions have been created to ensure a desired or acceptable result to the instigator. A sort of Problem, Reaction, Solution meets Game theory.
