We're joined again by former Swiss banker Manfred Petritsch editor of 'All Smoke and Mirrors' blog 'Alles Schall und Rauch' who has visited Iran several times. He has contacts there who've explained to him what they believe is happening, that Saudi Prince Mohammed Bin Salman has paid agents to interfere in Iranian social groups, to stir them up. Manfred also believes Israel will not wage war on Iran because Hezbollah can hit back at Israel with missiles from Lebanon so they 'want the US to do their dirty work for them'. Finally we look at the geopolitical prospects for 2018 and what Manfred sees as the slow death of both US government and corporate media credibility in the world.

Part 2 of 2 - This time we take a look at whether Generals Horrocks and Browning were really up to the job in WWII's September 1944 Operation Market Garden - Jon Hagadorn hosts the 1001 Heroes Podcast from the USA which explores controversial or otherwise interesting episodes in history. Tonight he talks about the infamous Market Garden operation of September 1944 when allied forces under General Montgomery attempted to liberate Holland from Nazi occupation and force an airborne and armoured corridor up to and over the River Rhine at Arnhem. The U.S. 82nd and 101st Airborne Divisions excelled themselves but British airborne commander and ground contingent, Capt. Peter Carrington and XXX Corps General Brian Horrocks along with Airborne Corps General Fred 'Boy' Browning, all appear to have failed to pursue their military objective, the Rhine crossing. Leaving the gallant 1st Airborne Colonel John Frost's battalion to die at Arnhem Bridge.
