A Long History of US Meddling in Other Nations

~ Map showing history of US military interference in the Caribbean 1900-1941

Yesterday we wrote that historically speaking, when it comes to meddling in elections and the political fate of other sovereign nations, we have no moral ground to stand on as everyone tries to make a big to-do about Russian 'interference'

We've meddled, arm-twisted changes in policy, instigated coups, put in US friendly dictatorships run by puppet heads and in the case of American Indians, tried to directly wipe them off the earth..

We've done some variance of this since nearly the beginning of our nation's formation
Not saying this so one hates this country..  One shouldn't

US is still the greatest on earth especially compared to the deep rot history of other nations

It's just we hate hypocrisy
We're going to re-post something wrote back in May - a long history (in summarized form) as to how when it comes to past public policy over the last nearly 200 years, its not been something to be proud of..

It is an important read because they don't teach this in school
1861-85  War of Southern Independence -- After decades of meaningless compromises, diminished voice in Congress and tired of continued meddling by Northern merchants and bankers into their livelihood, 7 states broke free (eventually another 4 would follow) to seek to create their own nation

We obviously did not like this so for 4 long bloody years costing 600,000 lives and cost over $5.2 Billion dollars, and Yes we mean in 1860s money

When war started, US debt was only $65 million

All that to force by violence the continuation of a political shotgun marriage and to tell half the nation you can not choose your own path because it does not economically benefit us
1893 Hawaii -- On January 17, 1893, the US government behind the scenes assisted anti-monarchial elements within the Kingdom of Hawaii, to overthrow of its native monarch, Queen Lili'uokalani.

Hawaii was initially reconstituted as an independent republic, but the ultimate goal of the revolutionaries was the annexation of the islands to the United States, which was finally accomplished in 1898.
1900 China --  The Boxer Rebellion was a proto-nationalist movement that was opposed to Western imperial expansion in China which took place between 1898 and 1901.

The US was part of an Eight-Nation Alliance that brought 20,000 armed troops to China, defeated the Imperial Chinese Army, and captured Beijing.

Government officials who supported the uprising were executed and China had to pay as penalty what would be valued today as $10 billion in silver bars to the US and other participants.
1903 Panama -- The US backed rebels who ultimately seceded from the Republic of Colombia,and formed what is now Panama.

This was done because around that time, the Panama Canal was under construction by then, and the Panama Canal Zone, under United States sovereignty, was then created.

The zone was ultimately transferred to Panama in 2000.
1903 Honduras -- To benefit the United Fruit Company and Standard Fruit Company which dominated the country's key banana export sector and associated land holdings and railways, American troops were inserted in 1903, 1907, 1911, 1912, 1919, 1924 and 1925 to force their government to comply with the American businesses' wishes

The term "Banana Republic" was coined in 1904 to describe Honduras.
1912 Nicaragua --  US troops occupied the Central American nation almost continuously from 1912 through 1933.

1914 Mexico -- During this period, Mexico was going through a revolution but US Government was concerned, especially involving its business interests so it decided it would militarily intervene to stabilize the situation.    Thus, US troops occupied Veracruz for seven months
1915 Haiti -- Was occupied by the U.S. from 1915–1934, which included the creation of a new Haitian constitution in 1917 which basically the US government formulated

1916 Dominican Republic -- Every time we did not like the political forces running the island nation, we would send in our Marines to re-establish order and put in place someone we could work with

This happened in 1903, 1904, 1914 and a more lengthy occupation by the U.S. from 1916–1924.
1918 Russia --  Because the Allied nations of World War I (Britain, France & the US) were fearful of the Communists taking over, they intervened militarily in the Russian Civil War to seek regime change

About 250,000 foreign troops entered Russia during the Russian civil war fought by the White Army (US & Allies) against the new Soviet government.

13,000 American troops were sent which invaded through Arkhangelsk and Vladivostok and whose mission after the end of World War I was to topple the Soviet government.
1941 Panama -- The US government used its contacts in the Panama National Guard, which the U.S. had earlier trained, to have the government of Panama overthrown in a bloodless coup.

The U.S. had requested that the government of Panama allow it to build over 130 new military installations inside and outside of the Panama Canal Zone, and the government of Panama refused this request at the price suggested by the U.S

1941-1945: World War II --  Even though the US was brought into the War due to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor the ultimate goal for US and Allied forces was the complete removal of Hitler, Mussolini and Tojo and to convert the three nations from Fascist to democratic-capitalist
South Korea 1945-1950 --  The US basically involved itself in the Korean War to prevent a Communist government which would be against US interests from taking control of the country.

After a three year stalemate, ultimately it was agreed to split Korea into two nations with South being democratic and capitalist while the North being communist.
March 1949 Syrian coup d'état -- The democratically elected government of Shukri al-Quwatli was overthrown by a junta led by the Syrian Army chief of staff at the time, Husni al-Za'im, who became President of Syria on 11 April 1949.

The exact nature of US involvement in that coup is still highly controversial, however it is well documented that the construction of the Trans-Arabian Pipeline, which had been held up in the Syrian parliament, was approved by Za'im just over a month after the coup.
1953 Iranian coup d'état --  This was the overthrow of the democratically elected government of Iranian Prime Minister Mohammad Mosaddegh on 19 August 1953, orchestrated by the intelligence agencies of the UK & US

The coup saw the transition of Mohammad-Rezā Shāh Pahlavi (The Shah) from a constitutional monarch to an authoritarian one who relied heavily on United States government support to hold on to power until his own overthrow in February 1979.
1954 Guatemala -- The U.S. government through the CIA executed a coup d'état that was successful in overthrowing the democratically elected government of President Jacobo Árbenz and installed the first of a line of dictators in its place.

1961 Cuba Bay of Pigs Invasion -- The CIA orchestrated a force composed of CIA-trained Cuban exiles to invade Cuba with support and encouragement from the US government, in an attempt to overthrow the Cuban government of Fidel Castro because he was bad for US business interests.

The invasion was launched in April 1961, three months after John F. Kennedy assumed the presidency in the United States. The Cuban armed forces, trained and equipped by Eastern Bloc nations, defeated the invading combatants within three days.
1965 Dominican Republic -- LBJ fearing the creation of "a second Cuba" on America's doorstep if Loyalist forces lost the civil war, ordered U.S. forces to restore order militarily.

A fleet of 41 vessels was sent to blockade the island, and an invasion was launched. Ultimately, 42,000 soldiers and marines were ordered to the Dominican Republic.

1964-1973 Vietnam War --  Like our involvement in Korea, the US deployed its military into Vietnam with the ultimate goal of removing Communist leader Ho Chi Mihn from the North and re-unifying the nation under US political control
1973 Chilean coup d'état  -- This was the overthrow of democratically elected President Salvador Allende by the Chilean armed forces and national police. This followed an extended period of social and political unrest between the right dominated Congress of Chile and Allende, as well as economic warfare ordered by US President Richard Nixon.

1979-1989 Afghanistan -- In what was known as "Operation Cyclone," the U.S. government secretly provided weapons and funding for the Mujahadin Islamic guerrillas of Afghanistan fighting to overthrow the Afghan government and the Soviet military forces that supported it.
1982-1989 Nicaragua --  During Reagan's Presidency, the US attempted to topple the government of Nicaragua by secretly arming, training and funding the Contras, a rebel group based in Honduras that was created to sabotage Nicaragua and to destabilize the Nicaraguan government.

After the Boland Amendment made it illegal for the U.S. government to provide funding for Contra activities, the administration of Reagan secretly sold arms to the Iranian government to fund a secret U.S. government apparatus that continued illegally to fund the Contras, in what became known as the Iran-Contra affair.
1983 Grenada -- In what the U.S. government called Operation Urgent Fury, the U.S. military invaded the tiny island nation of Grenada to remove the Marxist government of Grenada that the Reagan Administration found objectionable.

1989 Panama -- In a military operation code-named Operation Just Cause, the U.S. invaded Panama because President Bush Sr was tired of dealing with their President Manuel Noriega
Early 1990s - Former Soviet Union -- Russian President Boris Yeltsin was trailing very badly in the polls for re-election vs a fervent Communist whom President Clinton feared would ultimately re-start the Cold War

So Clinton sent political advisers to Russia to work quietly on Yeltsin's campaign to help him be more likable.. Ultimately Yeltsin won re-election
2003 Iraq -- US forces invade Iraq, then capture and ultimately kill Saddam Hussein because President Bush resented Hussein trying to kill his father and wanted him permanently removed

2011 Libya -- The US was part of a multi-state coalition that began a military intervention in Libya taken to respond to events during the Libyan Civil War,

Military operations began, with US and British naval forces firing over 110 Tomahawk cruise missiles, the French and British Air Forces undertaking sorties across Libya and a naval blockade by Coalition forces with the goal of killing Ghaddafi

They were successful..  Soon after the rebel government secured a very hefty loan from the US controlled International Monetary Fund
2015 Israel -- Bastard piece of shit Obama meddled directly in Israeli elections with the goal of seeking to have his enemy Benjamin Netanyahu voted out of office..

Taxpayer money was funneled via George Soros' "Open Society Foundation" to leftist Israeli political groups to use to defeat the conservative leader

It failed.

So to get even and show how deep his hatred for the Jewish people are, Obama mere weeks from leaving office, orchestrated behind the scenes for the UN to condemn Israel in a Security Council vote..

And for some reason, most Jews still love the nigger and passionately align themselves financially to the Democrat Party..
So what's the lesson?

When we've directly and indirectly meddled in other nations' elections for decades, perhaps it should not be so shocking if others try to do the same to us
