Operation Crown 1963 - 1968
I am a reluctant veteran of the CIA's Secret War in Laos thanks to the deceit of the British government.
I have been a member of the Queensland Greens since 1992 and have stood as a candisate in numerous elections. The most recent was in the seat of Griffith against Kevin Rudd. I drew attention to the fact that the incoming Australian Prime Minister was intent on continuing the wars and had no idea about climate change and its likely impacts.
I am a peace scholar currently researching the roles played by US allies, Britain, Australia and New Zealand in the CIA's Secret War in Laos, and in the Indochina War. I am very concerned that as the world's resources are rapidly depleted we will see more wars of aggression like the illegal wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
