Diplomacia Suja um dos livros sobre pol tica mais contundentes que li Mostra os bastidores da diplomacia brit nica, de um ponto de vista privilegiado, j que Murray conta uma hist ria real Um livro que mostra que os fins, definitivamente, n o justificam os meios. When you mention Uzbekistan to most educated people today they will know, at very least, that it has a horrible human rights record That knowledge is due largely to the actions advocacy of Craig Murray the author of Dirty Diplomacy , the British ambassador to Uzbekistan between 2002 and 2004 Those dates are significant The post 9 11 build up to the invasion of Iraq was underway when Ambassador Murray arrived at his new post in Tashkent Britain had decided to back the Bush administrations When you mention Uzbekistan to most educated people today they will know, at very least, that it has a horrible human rights record That knowledge is due largely to the actions advocacy of Craig Murray the author of Dirty Diplomacy , the British ambassador to Uzbekistan between 2002 and 2004 Those dates are significant The post 9 11 build up to the invasion of Iraq was underway when Ambassador Murray arrived at his new post in Tashkent Britain had decided to back the Bush administrations plans, and majority Muslim nations willing to support those plans, like Uzbekistan, were key The autocratic rule of Islam Karimov, whose security forces were known to torture detainees to death, sometimes by submerging them alive in boiling water, were deemed to be highly inconvenient to these plans But Ambassador Murray would not turn a blind eye And because, in an attempt to shame silence him, many details of Murray s less than perfect personal life were used, what we get in his narrative is a warts all portrait of the man, a bit like, on a smaller scale, another Oskar Schindler Highly recommended
