USA:s statskupper från 1947 m.m.

Jag har stuvat om listan över USA:s statskupper men originalet finns finns som länk i vänstermenyn: USA:s statskupper. Där kan man klicka på varje årtal och få mer information och det finns hur mycket material som helst där.

Det finns inget land som så grymt och brutalt har invaderat länder, mördat hej vilt viktiga personer för att destabilisera och sätta skräck i en befolkning genom desinformation. Redan 1890 började dom med sin djävla terror! (länk lägre ner.)

Jag undrar hur många dom har mördat som aldrig kommer fram för att dom tål inte ett nej när dom vill ha något. Dom är verkligen Satans representanter! En f.d CIA-agent John Perkins åkte runt som en “hitman” (sändebud) med “an offer you an not refuse.” Finns mycket på Tuben om honom.

När man läser alla dessa attacker på länder och varför så kan ju var och en räkna ut vad USA vill med TTIP. Om det är något land som vill ta över världen så är det dom! Och rymden också.

Det finns inget land som ens kommer i närheten av USA:s CV när det gäller brutalitet och grymhet och total brist på empati och förståelse för andra människor!

Efter Introduktionen och statskupperna längst ner på sidan har olika personer som politiker, journalister och historiker uttalat sig om USA:s brutalitet som inta har någon moral what so ever.

Coups Arranged or Backed by the USA

Introduction
Since 1945, the USA has been responsible either directly or indirectly of helping remove dozens of governments, many democratically elected, around the world. Sometimes the events are kept secret for years and only slowly come out. Other times, the events are the cause of demonstrations, anger and resentment at the time they occur.
Whenever, an event like this occurs there are two reasons to be considered.

Reason 1: The reason given by the USA, its media and its friends around the world.
Reasons like Communism, Terrorism, Human Rights, Freedom, Liberation, Weapons
of Mass Destruction, etc.

Reason 2: The actual reason. This is usually hidden from the general public and has to be looked for in quotes by under-reported officials or subsequent events on the ground. Often, the victims of the change of government know the real reasons better than the populations of the Western countries. Real reasons are many but usually include Business Interests, Access to Resources, Markets, Military Bases, Strategic Value, or Political Support.

In the list below only successful changes of government are listed. Many attempts have
failed. Cuba is the best example of this.

The USA frequently interferes in nations’ elections. At the same time it is against the law to interfere in USA elections. The USA often insists on countries having United Nations inspections for weapons programs while denying access for its own extensive chemical,nuclear and biological armoury. The USA will use the international lega l system when it suits but ignore its resolutions if they go against the USA. This behaviour is reported around the world leading to much anger and resentment at the USA. Little of this gets reported to the USA public however.

The USA has, by far, bombed more countries than any other nation. Sometimes the United Nations approves. If it does not, the USA will bomb anyway. Many countries are subject to unilateral economic sanctions by the USA. Cuba is a good example. The USA will not only impose sanctions but often cajoles and bullies other countries to follow it. Again, the United Nations is used if possible, and ignored if not.

Much of the world feels like there is one law for the USA and its friends, another law foreveryone else.

US Foreign Interventions
Numerous historical accounts of US imperialism by region.

Quotes
William Blum, USA writer from the book, “Rogue State”:
“From 1945 to the end of the [20th] century, the USA attempted to overthrow more than
40 foreign governments, and to crush more than 30 populist-nationalist movements
struggling against intolerable regimes. In the process, the USA caused the end of life for
several million people, and condemned many millions more to a life of agony and
despair”.

Michael Krenn, quoting the USA chargé d’Affairs in 1929;
“Until the Venezuelan people could be trusted to make the right decisions concerning
their political and economic direction – and that time was deemed to be in the very
distant future – it was best for all concerned that they be kept safe from democracy.”
CIA document, dated 10 September 1973 about Chile:

“The coup attempt will begin September 11. All three branches of the armed forces and
the Carabineros are involved in this action. A declaration will be read on Radio
Agricultura at 7 A.M. on 11 September.”

Jack Kubisch, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State. Testimony before the USA House
Subcommittee on Inter American Affairs 20 September 1973 about the Chilean coup:
“Gentlemen, I wish to state as flatly and as categorically as I possibly can that we did
not have advance knowledge of the coup that took place on September 11.”

Pentagon’s Planning Guidance for the Fiscal Years 1994 – 1999, a USA planning
document:

“Our first objective is to prevent the re-emergence of a new rival… we must maintain
the mechanisms for deterring potential competitors from even aspiring to a larger
regional or global role.”

Bill Clinton, USA president, speaking in Greece;
“When the junta took over in 1967 here the United States allowed its interests in
prosecuting the Cold War to prevail over its interests – I should say its obligation – to
support democracy, which was, after all, the cause for which we fought the Cold War. It
is important that we acknowledge that.”

Quotes
Amnesty International, 1996 from “Human Rights and USA Security Assistance”:
“Throughout the world, on any given day, a man, woman or child is likely to be
displaced, tortured, killed or ‘disappeared’, at the hands of governments or armed
political groups. More often than not, the United States shares the blame.”
Madeleine Albright, former USA Secretary of State to the United Nations:
“[The USA will] behave, with others, multilaterally when we can and unilaterally as we
must.”

Thomas Friedman from “What the World Needs Now” in the New York Times (USA) and
Illustrated by an American Flag on a fist:
“For globalism to work, America can’t be afraid to act like the almighty superpower
that it is….The hidden hand of the market will never work without a hidden
fist…McDonald’s cannot flourish without McDonnell Douglas, the designer of the F-15.
And the hidden fist that keeps the world safe for Silicon Valley’s technologies is called
the United States Army, Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps.”

USA Defence Secretary William Cohen in remarks to reporters prior to his speech at
Microsoft Corporation in Seattle as reported by Associated Press:
“[T]he prosperity that companies like Microsoft now enjoy could not occur without
having the strong military that we have. … conflicts in faraway lands such as Bosnia,
Korea and Iraq have a direct effect on the U.S. economy. The billions it costs to keep
100,000 American troops in South Korea and Japan, for example, makes Asia more
stable–and thus better markets for U.S. goods. The military’s success in holding Iraq in
check ensures a continued flow of oil from the Persian Gulf.”

George Kennan, Cold War Planner for the USA in 1948:
“We have 50% of the world’s wealth, but only 6.3% of its population. In this situation,
our real job in the coming period is to devise a pattern of relationships which permit us
to maintain this position of disparity. To do so, we have to dispense with all
sentimentality…we should cease thinking about human rights, the raising of living
standards and democratisation.”

Arundhati ROY, Indian writer:
“Terrorism is the symptom, not the disease. Terrorism has no country. It’s
transnational, as global an enterprise as Coke or Pepsi or Nike. At the first sign of
trouble, terrorists can pull up stakes and move their ‘factories’ from country to country
in search of a better deal. Just like the multi-nationals.”

New Republic, USA magazine:
“Operation Enduring Freedom is not a humanitarian intervention. If we leave behind a
country in chaos that can no longer serve as a base of operations against us, then we will
have accomplished a necessary objective [and should] lose the obsession with nationbuilding”.

Abdul Haq, Afghan envoy executed by the Taliban in Afghanistan:
“[The USA] is trying to show its muscle, score a victory and scare everyone in the world.
They don’t care about the suffering of the Afghans or how many people we will lose.
And we don’t like that. Because Afghans are now being made to suffer for these Arab
fanatics, but we all know who brought these Arabs to Afghanistan in the 1980s, armed
them and gave them a base. It was the Americans and the CIA. And the Americans who
did this all got medals and good careers, while all these years Afghans suffered from
these Arabs and their allies. Now, when America is attacked, instead of punishing the
Americans who did this, it punishes the Afghans.”

RAWA, Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan:
“[The] Taliban should be overthrown by the uprising of Afghan nation. Again, due to
the treason of fundamentalist hangmen, our people have been caught in the claws of the
monster of a vast war and destruction. America, by forming an international coalition
against Osama and his Taliban collaborators and in retaliation for the 11th September
[2001] terrorist attacks, has launched a vast aggression on our country. Despite the
claim of the USA that only military and terrorist bases of the Taliban and Al Qieda will
be struck and that its actions would be accurately targeted and proportionate, we have
witnessed for the past seven days leaves no doubt that this invasion will shed the blood of
numerous women, men, children, young and old of our country.”

George Bush, USA president during the bombing of Iraq:
“What we say goes.”

Cardinal Paulo Evarista Arns of Sao Paulo (Brazil) after the USA bombing of Iraq:
“[In the Arab countries] the rich sided with the USA government while the millions of
poor condemned this military aggression. [Throughout the Third World] there is hatred
and fear: When will they decide to invade us and on what pretext?”

Noam Chomsky, USA writer:
“Overwhelming dominance is necessary for well-known technical reasons. Even Ballistic
Missile Defense requires nullification of the anti satellite weapons of a potential
adversary. The USA must therefore achieve ‘full spectrum dominance’, ensuring that
even this much simpler technology will not be available. An iron fist is needed for other
reasons. USA military planners share the assessment of the intelligence community and
outside experts that what is misleadingly called ‘globalization’ will lead to a widening
divide between the ‘haves’ and the ‘have nots’ – contrary to doctrine, but in accord with
reality. And it will be necessary to control unruly elements: by inspiring fear, or perhaps
by actual use of highly destructive killing machines launched from space, probably
nuclear powered and on hair trigger alert with automated control systems, thus
increasing the likelihood of what in the trade are called ‘normal accidents’: the
unpredictable errors to which all complex systems are subject.”

Der Spiegal, news magazine from Germany (1 September 1997):
“Never before in modern history has a country dominated the earth so totally as the
United States does today… America is now the Schwarzenegger of international politics:
showing off muscles, obtrusive, intimidating… The Americans, in the absence of limits
put to them by anybody or anything, act as if they own a kind of blank cheque in their
‘McWorld'”.

Nelson Mandela, President of South Africa after the USA had tried to stop him from visiting Libya in 1997 (quoted in the Washington Post):
“How can they have the arrogance to dictate to us where we should go or which
countries should be our friends? Gadhafi is my friend. He supported us when we were
alone and when those who tried to prevent my visit here today were our enemies. They
have no morals. We cannot accept that a state assumes the role of the world’s
policeman.”

Rupert Cornwall, writing in the UK newspaper, The Independent about the treatment of
Afghan prisoners by the USA:
“[The USA] believes it is conducting a righteous war to rid the world of a deadly enemy
that will stop at nothing to achieve its fiendish ends. Europe, through, increasingly sees
an arrogant superpower on the loose – one that after a brief, tactical flirtation with
cooperation in the early stages of the war is back to its old unilaterist ways, safe in the
knowledge that its power is unchallengeable. Donald Rumsfeld the [USA] Defence
Secretary, makes clear that America will do this its way, whether the world likes it or
not.”

A Study of Assassination, a CIA document written in 1954 and released in 1997:
“For secret assassinations… the contrived accident is the most effective technique. When
successfully executed, it causes little excitement and is only casually investigated. The
most effective accident… is a fall of 75 feet [23m] or more onto a hard surface. Elevator
shafts, stair wells, unscreened windows and bridges will serve… The act may be executed
by sudden, vigorous grabbing of the ankles, tipping the subject over the edge. If the
assassin immediately sets up an outcry, playing the ‘horified witness’, no alibi or
surreptitious withdrawal is necessary.”

“Drugs can be very effective. If the assassin is trained as a doctor or nurse and the
subject is under medical care, this is an easy and sure method. An overdose of morphine
administered as a sedative will cause death without disturbance and is difficult to detect.
The size of the dose will depend upon whether the subject has been using narcotics
regularly. If not, two grains will suffice. If the subject drinks heavily, morphine or a
similar narcotic can be injected at the passing out stage, and the cause of death will often
be held to be acute alcoholism.”

“Edge weapons: any legally obtained edge device may be successfully employed. A
certain minimum of anatomical knowledge is needed for reliability. Puncture wounds of
the body cavity may not be reliable unless the heart is reached. The heart is protected by
the rib cage and is not always easy to locate. Absolute reliability is obtained by severing
the spinal chord in the cervical region. This can be done with the point of a knife or a
light blow of an axe or hatchet. Another reliable method is the severing of both jugular
and cartoid vessels on both sides of the windpipe.”

Counterintelligence Interrogation, a CIA document written in 1963 for the war in Vietnam:
“The effectiveness of most of the non-coercive techniques depends on their unsettling
effect. The interrogation situation is in itself disturbing to most people encountering it
for the first time. The aim is to enhance this effect… [and to create] a traumatic or subtraumatic
experience which explodes, as it were, the world that is familiar to the subject
as well as his image of himself in the world. usually his own clothes are taken away
because familiar clothing reinforces identity and thus the capacity of resistance. The
following are the principal coercive techniques of interrogation: arrest, detention,
deprivation of sensory stimuli through solitary confinement or similar methods, threats
and fear, debility, pain, heightened suggestibility and hypnoses, narcosis and induced
regression.”

Dick Gregory:
“What we’re doing in Vietnam is using the black man to kill the yellow man so that the
white man can keep the land he took from the red man”.

George Keenan, USA historian:
“It is not Russian military power that is threatening us, it is Russian political power”.
Marine Corps Gazette, USA military magazine (May 1900):
“The underdeveloped world’s growing dissatisfaction over the gap between rich and
poor nations will create a fertile breeding ground for insurgencies. These insurgencies
have the potential to jeopardize regional stability and our access to vital economic and
military resources.”

Patrick Leahy, USA Senator:
“Foreign aid must do much more to strengthen American economic competitiveness
abroad. [Aid] is not some international charity or welfare program. Properly designed,
it can be an investment in new trading partners, growing export markets, and more jobs
in our export industries here at home.”

Dimitri Simes, senior associate of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace writing in the USA newspaper, New York Times (27 December 1988):
“The apparent decline of the Soviet threat… makes military power more useful as a United States foreign policy instrument… against those who contemplate challenging important American interests.”

Jiri Valenta, economic writer:
“[USA] national security interests in the Caribbean [and elsewhere in the hemisphere]
have rested on powerful economic investments.”

Robert Tucker, author of The purpose of American Power in USA government publication,
Foreign Policy (Winter 1980/1):
“[The USA should be prepared to use force to bar threats] from developments indigenous to the Gulf [that might endanger] our rights of access [or our] economic wellbeing and the integrity of [the nation’s] basic institutions.”

Robert Pastor, director of Latin American and Caribbean Affiars on the USA National
Security Council:
“The [USA] did not want to control Nicaragua or the other nations in the region, but it
also did not want to allow development to get out of control. It wanted Nicaragua to act
independently, EXCEPT when doing so would affect [USA] interests adversely.”
Gioconda Belli, Nicaraguan writer and former member of the Sandinista government:
“The reality, of course, is the American foreign policy is run like a corporation. It is
totally self interested – Americans only for themselves. Even the use of the word
‘American’ is unfair. Are we not Americans too?”

Tariq Ali, UK writer:
“There are 189 member states of the UN. There is, according to USA Defense
Department figures, a USA military presence in 120 countries today.”

Noam Chomsky, USA writer:
“Cluster bombs are much more dangerous than mines. They are vicious anti-personnel
weapons that send out flechettes that tear people to shreds. They just sit there and if a
child picks one up, or a farmer hits one with a hoe, it explodes.”

“In Afghanistan nobody is going to clear these things. So in addition to the mines, there
will be cluster bombs unexploded and very little ability to bring in food or blankets or to
provide shelter. Many people will disappear and no one will even know what happened
to them. No one is going to do a careful census of Afghanistan to find out what the
effects were of the bombing and of the threat of bombing.”

“The same is happening in many places. The estimates are that in northern Laos there
are probably thousands of deaths a year, 30 years after the bombing. In Laos the
Pentagon would not even provide instructions on how to defuse them to a volunteer
British de-mining group that was working there. In Kosovo as well, the USA refused to
remove cluster bombs.”
