Talking about empire & fascism this evening and we landed on the intellectual sharpness of Carl Schmitt as a warning against liberals overselling the value of dialogue/debate with political enemies: I think we forget that Nazis, fascists, et al. are actually quite smart.

“The legislation goes hand in hand with a contentious program that began in the northeastern state of Assam this year, in which all 33 million residents of the state had to prove, with documentary evidence, that they or their ancestors were Indian.”

Foreign penetration, unaccountability, overlapping centres of power, multiplicity of armed actors, the contradictions that dot Iraq’s security sector & the fact that the state is not a unitary actor are also longstanding issues that've been accentuated in this crisis (6/7).

. The ongoing crisis has brought the Iraqi state’s structural incoherence into sharper relief. Nowhere is this more evident than in the security sector where the line between state and non-state, state and militia, has long been blurred into irrelevance (1/7).

Part of this of course is due to enormous changes in global political economy post-1979, but also eradication of Iranian left, which since at least forties had been an antagonist & interlocutor of Islamic political thinkers & postcolonial critics of ’ian colonial modernity.

IRI is in midst of ongoing identity crisis - left pretence to be a regime of “dispossessed” behind. Reformists sought to transform it into a bourgeois constitutional regime & were repressed. Islamists of yesteryear now largely embourgeoised class saturated in neoliberal reason.

Yesterday I resigned from Newsweek after my attempts to publish newsworthy revelations about the leaked OPCW letter were refused for no valid reason.

I’m still waiting for NYT or WaPo to write a piece on this, but then again their moral posturing on dual nationals being detained in Iran will come undone if they pointed out how criminal sanctions actually work.

I believe sanctions should come under that rubric of transnational torture techniques.

“The term muhasasa is a byword for the political system and all its ills...the system underpins the corruption, collusion and patronage networks that characterise public life in Iraq," Fanar Haddad on the political system reviled by Iraqi protestors.

Super honored to have research-assisted on this. Along with the theoretical component, the paper is based on interviews with 6 Hizbullah senior officials and commanders in Lebanon, Syria and Iraq, plus an examination of 17 Nasrallah speeches over the past decade.

Really excited to share my paper “Challenging the sponsor-proxy model: the Iran–Hizbullah relationship.” Using IR theories, I not only show that Hizbullah isn’t an Iranian proxy, but that it’s a regional subpower. DM me for a copy if you dont have access
