The engine of American foreign policy has been fueled not by a devotion to any kind of morality, but rather by the necessity to serve other imperatives, which can be summarized as follows:

* making the world safe for American corporations
* enhancing the financial statements of defense contractors at home who have contributed generously to members of congress
* preventing the rise of any society that might serve as a successful example of an alternative to the capitalist model
* extending political and economic hegemony over as wide an area as possible, as befits a "great power."

This in the name of fighting a supposed moral crusade against what cold warriors convinced themselves, and the American people, was the existence of an evil International Communist Conspiracy, which in fact never existed, evil or not.
The United States carried out extremely serious interventions into more than 70 nations in this period.




Yeah, yeah and your fuc..ng country invaded OUR territory 40 years ago. And is sitll divided.

The choice should be very simple! Who would you choose.

During the Greek Civil War you had 2 sides. You had the Greek Government supported by USA and you had the Guerillas who were supported by Stalin!

Who would you choose. USA or Stalin? It's a no brainer!

As a Greek, and if I happened to live in Greece, I can see nothing worse than Greece succumbing to Stalin and a tyrant unparalleled and on par with Nazi Germany.

So of course, America's assistance and involvement saved Greece from a lot of pain.


That was a long time ago but this little gem is from the here and now. Who would you give your support to ...... because the US Administration supports these criminals to the tune of more than $3bn a year! The comment that amused me was that the man says that the '.... Palestinian rocket attacks the Israeli's responded to were illegal.'. They are NOT illegal as the Israeli's are a military force occupying Palestine BUT ..... what the Israelis are doing IS illegal in International Law and yet the US says ...... zilch!!!!

Americans ...... generally a nice people but not the sharpest knives in the drawer! But the US Government is not representative of the American people. :roll:


That's a very good question there RH.

Certainly Hezbollah is not an organisation we can lend any form of support to. They are in fact a terrorist organisation,

Israel on the other hand is an ally.

Having said that, the PLO is an organisation we do consider as our friends and we do support them and we do support a peaceful settlement involving the PLO and Israel as well as Palestinian Statehood.

the 200,000 east timorians who were murdered by your asuie savages thank you for not only saving them from the commies but also sending them to heaven you stupid idiot.


Where did you pull that figure from.

You would be pushing to get 3000 dead from the Australian Intervention in East Timor and most of these were Indonesian Militias.

I don't see the East Timorese complaining. They have a very close relationship with Australia and absolutely love Alexander Downer as their National Hero.

historical fact asshole. dead people do not complain.

now where were we oh yes no country number 24 attacked by christian yankees all in the name of god fearing of course.

Grenada, 1979-84:
What would drive the most powerful nation in the world to invade a country of 110,000? Maurice Bishop and his followers had taken power in a 1979 coup, and though their actual policies were not as revolutionary as Castro's, Washington was again driven by its fear of "another Cuba," particularly when public appearances by the Grenadian leaders in other countries of the region met with great enthusiasm.
U. S. destabilization tactics against the Bishop government began soon after the coup and continued until 1983, featuring numerous acts of disinformation and dirty tricks. The American invasion in October 1983 met minimal resistance, although the U.S. suffered 135 killed or wounded; there were also some 400 Grenadian casualties, and 84 Cubans, mainly construction workers.
At the end of 1984, a questionable election was held which was won by a man supported by the Reagan administration. One year later, the human rights organization, Council on Hemispheric Affairs, reported that Grenada's new U.S.-trained police force and counter-insurgency forces had acquired a reputation for brutality, arbitrary arrest, and abuse of authority, and were eroding civil rights.
In April 1989, the government issued a list of more than 80 books which were prohibited from being imported. Four months later, the prime minister suspended parliament to forestall a threatened no-confidence vote resulting from what his critics called "an increasingly authoritarian style."

here is another one

Libya, 1981-89:
Libya refused to be a proper Middle East client state of Washington. Its leader, Muammar el-Qaddafi, was uppity. He would have to be punished. U.S. planes shot down two Libyan planes in what Libya regarded as its air space. The U. S . also dropped bombs on the country, killing at least 40 people, including Qaddafi's daughter. There were other attempts to assassinate the man, operations to overthrow him, a major disinformation campaign, economic sanctions, and blaming Libya for being behind the Pan Am 103 bombing without any good evidence.

and another one

Panama, 1989:
Washington's bombers strike again. December 1989, a large tenement barrio in Panama City wiped out, 15,000 people left homeless. Counting several days of ground fighting against Panamanian forces, 500-something dead was the official body count, what the U.S. and the new U.S.-installed Panamanian government admitted to; other sources, with no less evidence, insisted that thousands had died; 3,000-something wounded. Twenty-three Americans dead, 324 wounded.
Question from reporter: "Was it really worth it to send people to their death for this? To get Noriega?"
George Bush: "Every human life is precious, and yet I have to answer, yes, it has been worth it."
Manuel Noriega had been an American ally and informant for years until he outlived his usefulness. But getting him was not the only motive for the attack. Bush wanted to send a clear message to the people of Nicaragua, who had an election scheduled in two months, that this might be their fate if they reelected the Sandinistas. Bush also wanted to flex some military muscle to illustrate to Congress the need for a large combat-ready force even after the very recent dissolution of the "Soviet threat." The official explanation for the American ouster was Noriega's drug trafficking, which Washington had known about for years and had not been at all bothered by.
