  1. Mr. Mosquito, as always enjoy your blog, in my discussions with friends and others who could be considered reasonably well informed let alone libs who know very little, the lack of any knowledge of Rhodes, MacKinder, Quigley and the concept of the world island and how virtually all of todays battles follow that outline, want to remind you to read "Conjuring Hitler" by Preparata, it fills in much on the British desire to crush Germany, reaffirming that the Great Game is always being played, what's the new plan? to get China and Russia battling? all the best, Mark

    1. From the Amazon description of the book:

      "He explains that Britain, still clinging to its empire, was terrified of an alliance forming between Germany and Russia."

      In "The Silk Roads," the same issue was at stake prior to The Great War (I will write about this within the next week or two); it is still true today.

      Since I first discovered Mackinder, his thesis has rung true. Until I find a better explanation for the wars and geo-politics, I will stick with his.

  2. I wish you would comment on Jehanne De Quillan's book, "The Gospel of the Beloved Companion." Do a yahoo search and on the first page click awakening then click on healing "The Tree of Eight Boughs" is a vision from the first century not published until 2010 as well as the gospel that is a fore runner of all the gospels and hasn't been redacted by the catholic church. thanks Scott
