on pan-nationalist unity. Adams had concluded that the IRA campaign was going nowhere and that it was time to begin winding down the Provisional war machine in favour of an exclusively political strategy. The story of the Northern Irish peace process, and the reassessment of Provo ideology that made it possible, has often been told. Less attention has been paid to the class dimension of this mutation. When Sinn Féin began its electoral rise in the 1980s, party spokesmen had often presented it as the mouthpiece of an excluded Catholic working class whose voices had

We were out on our own.” Keeping everything in proportion, I was myself to be left “out on my own” for many long years, in the same way as those who had set about asserting the legitimacy of their “Muslim speech.” Up Against the War Machine of Disinformation In any event, in Algeria as elsewhere, the ability of Islamist political players to communicate with Western audiences was always especially weak. For good reason. It is difficult, if not counter-productive, to seek out the support of the very audience

which technological apparatuses such as drones are and have been put, we can say, along with Puar, that ‘the potential for gender differentiation in the first instance is already the potential – indeed the capacitation – of whiteness; the capacity to lean into gender ‘undecidability’, the province of that same whiteness.’ 41 Drone assemblages, in a mode that both resembles the politics of gender and also makes use of gender, take part in the production of a capacity to ‘fix’ certain bodies and identities so various war machines might be able to ‘tell the

Croatia and Bosnia, the international community had organised a series of embargoes and economic sanctions in an attempt to force the Milosević administration to the negotiating table. As the Kosovo Commission notes, by the late 1990s ‘the Milosevic war machine has relied on the “mafiazation” of the economy to get around the sanctions. Likewise, the division of labour between the army as an institution and the paramilitary forces had facilitated both ethnic cleansing and organized crime.’28 Following the Dayton Peace Accords which ended the fighting in Bosnia, Milosević

cocaine traders’ own conflicts among themselves. Perhaps there is little new in what I am saying here. Michael Taussig in his ethnographic diary of paramilitary violence in Colombia has emphasised the crucial place atmosphere occupies not only in the creation of war machines but in any rigorous attempt to portray them ethnographically.10 Yet what if the apparent affinity of a meteorological language for depicting circumstances of extreme social unrest expressed something crucial about the political nature of time itself?
