Americans get an upside-down version of why we intervene in other countries. This American general was close enough to what was happening to be able to see through the lies we were being told.
I helped make Mexico, especially Tampico, safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefits of Wall Street. The record of racketeering is long. I helped purify Nicaragua for the international banking house of Brown Brothers in 1909-1912 (where have I heard that name before?). I brought light to the Dominican Republic for American sugar interests in 1916. In China I helped to see to it that Standard Oil went its way unmolested.
Here are some more articles and videos that go into more detail. I've lived abroad for 19 years and in most places outside of the US political discussions are based on this kind of info. I've lived in Mexico City and Madrid and in those two places there's nothing more amusing than a group of Americans discussing politics.
This one was written by a politically-informed Christian.
For more, enter the words "Death squads", or "Torture" in this search engine.

Dude, you're posting this in the wrong forum. I'm sure the mods here would appreciate it if you posted this "information" in the Stupid Liberal Tricks forum initially as that's where all of your conspiridiocy theory bullshit is going to end up anyway.Solve a man's problem with violence and help him for a day.

Here's some stuff you should read about the mainstream American press.
You've been basing your opinions on misinformation all of your life. I know it's hard to admit you've been misled.
Don't feel bad. I fell for it too. I believed the official version of everything until I moved to California in the seventies. I started hanging out at universities and talking to foreign students. They all set me straight.
An American who believes the official version of everything and has never been in a situation in which he or she is able to learn the truth isn't dumb; the press does a good job of distorting reality. Just read the truth and verify it by talking to some foreigners and change your opinions. You're not dumb because you've never been in a situation in which you had access to objective information.

Using hardcore socialists & Anti-Americans to prove how evil the US is is rather pathetic. then to further embarrass yourself you site sources such as truthout.com which is anything but truth.

It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.

But...welcome to CU! At least you're free to express your opinions here, unlike most EVERY liberal site around. Tell me...who's afraid of the truth?? Certainly not us conservatives!Nothing says "idiot inside" better than an Obama/Biden bumper sticker.

I haven't read much else from truthout.com. I just found that article that talked about the history of the US and Iraq and it was consistent with what I hear from people who have travelled to that area.

Let me guess, Cosmored is a Liberal Atheist who happens to support Obama?
