looks like the beginning of the french allusion whether one ot those any such a movement these people those you know race if they don't know each other then there's a wendell most of them never one to demonstrations out process with the middle class people from a working class background that's what they are. it was in the one nine hundred fifty s. that our secretary of state john foster dulles proclaimed our policy is global.
we started as a continental empire by clearing out the native peoples and other foreign forces and we became an overseas empire by taking iowans in various parts of the world and then after the second world war we began to a global empire now we are playing on the whole billiard. the united states has always had a variety of tools to use in its attacks on other
countries. economic sanctions are are often just the beginning another thing you like to do is play some military pressure on their countries a true talking around. and there has to be an effort to demonize that country and the leader of that country particularly in our own press and in the press of that leader's own country. americans love to think there were intervening in other countries to overthrow evil people and if that's true you have to make the person look evil. and nineteen fifty one ottomans came to power in guatemala after being a looked at by the people in washington u.s. president for. years ago i wrote a book about how the united states overthrew the government of guatemala in nineteen fifty four.
the case of guatemala is a great example of american call for action during the period of the one nine hundred fifty s. when covert action was that a peak. the country lost its legitimate government which of people lost their lives . those new c.f.o. you to say that as you see them will do is to start. taking the lead independent i don't them on the look in the abbey on at the moment the memory of it
and. let me for one vote. may use the mind of that month. at this time a giant american company the united fruit company owned huge amounts of lending water. and much of that land they were not using was just being held taken while many guatemalans are starving because they didn't have the land to grow food. i.e. not be ample gabby and drive down in the. order that i.e. the adult. no
one month and there is no way to. get those a lot of requests. i don't know what to get. yeah. but going to get them. fills us. now in atlanta. and it's going up and. so a president arbenz a league watermelon government decreed a land reform program this land reform program would have forced the united fruit company to sell its own used lens so it could be divided up and given to four families the united fruit company was very unhappy with this they went to the united states government the u.s. government then concluded that these socialist orientation of guatemala was dangerous to the united states.
and they was the. woman threatening her to go. up dramatically in part become in. her a particularly good we would have at the. very wrong to you because we're not. going to come in something with them again and i get a more money from the. later civil war broke out something like two hundred thousand people were killed in that conflict over more than thirty years. they need to be able. to go.
feel that they wanted to steal our people i will spoil the story. then there. is. so the first one is. that. going to. the government that we don't like shows. by bothering an american company. then we convince ourselves that that company is our geo political enemy. then we sell the intervention. as humanitarian intervention we only do it that we don't do anything for ourselves in fact we sacrifice ourselves. for the good of others. for the.
wished them i don't really. have. seen that yet defeat the fuck up and see a see. them as that all off. maduna because he will from the innocent will feet now. and then walk on the diamond and the house at the hummus and then he. would move me yes it will be i can be in the middle of the field both had to do it but that length of the way in which the. libby.
we thought of him as a bad leader one we couldn't control now he looked like he might be about to carry out all human rights atrocity so we decided it was time to participate in an operation to overthrow gadhafi and that operation of course he was killed. so we succeeded in the short term goal get rid of gadhafi and deposed that government but then what happened we didn't have a plan for what was going to come next we thought that maybe by magic some new peaceful regime would urge everybody would cooperate with things to all this together.
. one somehow. with i'm up with. something and said ask me enumclaw self-image and i'll go home. and. i think one of the main reasons why i know we're working on this comply nationals is this because it'll sell the whole day as the different organization from payout to the previous issue or so i was sure still
do some fifteen. to all previous q so. it's one of the best national incident him in the. regular years. it's one of the. you know most of us could be in years and years it was a lot of was a. good one but. you'll be. pleased that we've the ways but i did my best which knights of the why do. you think. these are the ones that should be the school.
a mile i do and the thing was that i do any kind of god even in the. month unless i . was in on the myth scene then. somebody. on the one of them and things i mean i'm not often i'll be in feet off any special three hour boss calls kind of. national by any commission. i want to be just any unaccompanied young or was. that. because she. was out of.
this city's wrote a famous history of the golden museum of wars where he observes is. the war the conflict does not usually break out with the bigger the smaller country pushing up and pushing up and finally attacking that's not what happens it's usually the bigger country that gets worried and then attacks and you can see this pattern through history they call it sometimes the two cities trap and it's dangerous for the future because we united states is a power that's been used to being on the top and is now being challenged now no out of no neck down. islamia what kind of. mubarak we're going to be. but nobody and yet. ask
we believe that we are an exceptional nation this is a phrase you hear a lot in the united states we call it american exceptionalism it means that we have a responsibility for the whole world and we need to make rules for the rest of the world because without us there will be chaos. and my name is dr king on whose side and i am a white political scientist. in
one thousand nine hundred three my country was invaded by the united states had to leave been under an illegal and prolonged occupation ever since i've dedicated my life to not only finding out why the united states invaded my country but also how to bring the occupation to end it. all why was the law. long term american project it began with religious missionaries they left from boston in the eighteen twenty six to go to hawaii and live there to spend the rest of their lives civilizing the poor savages and barbarians as we saw them who lived in a white. room. this is the only policy on the back row. this was the executive monarchs
bilby. hawaii by eight hundred ninety three was already a constitutional monarchy so it had three separate branches of government executive which was here legislative and judicial which is across the street. the leader of these white a lawyer actually came to washington to win permission from the president of the united states to overthrow the government of the kingdom of hawaii he received that permission he went home he organized a coup in which the hawaiian kingdom was overthrown american marines were quickly landed just secured the new white government and
a few years later a y e became part of the united states. so this is the place that u.s. marines landed this road here is where they marched from honolulu harbor and they occupied this location break here when they invaded my country the honking the. so we're at right now this is where camps. this is headquarters for the pacific command and it overlooks pearl harbor and pro harbor is a naval base for the united states what falls under the command structure of the pacific command.
what it was taken by the united states were invaded in order for the united states to control pearl harbor because of hawaii's location in central central in the central pacific so there's a central location that ships could enter point ports after disarming refurbish leave hole in ports rearm and go back fighting. a little bit of who it was he gazed into in piece. by mighty pike creek sleep with find this very delicious they represent all the things it was happy it will be to be easy ninety and ninety third so what we see rising up out of the last people are these. monsters that are injury. document of annotations. talking to each other basically saying we're right this is what we are worthy to know little truth and absolute most of all public and high see
that from the newspapers that we're seeing being left. we've developed. an unusual. view of the world because of our location we have huge oceans and a couple of weak neighbors in mexico and canada therefore we've never had to have a foreign policy of clear cooperation with others we've been able because of our power to impose our will on others. won't we here hello come on a charter school. by school level there we're going to be visiting. you share with you folks you have a local one going to turn it over to you and your plans so. they can for you feel
like we already know why it was just standing national was this nation state and for fifty years we celebrate if you know you through what we know that. oh united states of america all illegally over with you. know. all of the of the united states maintain that paul or despite having no mule already this new military might do you hear what i said military that the threat of force violent sprouse for you how else are they maintaining power in. their population we just talked about on the guest video two hours adventure of it was all americans are waiting to hear was. it's yours.
we are the evidence. but the nationalisation where the evidence of the war crime we're not the war crimes ourselves. already is an independent country all that was overthrown in eighty ninety three was our government by the united states not our country so our country is still an independent state but we're not a control of our independence we're occupying. this book overthrow is in attempt to show the times that america overthrew foreign governments over a long period. the
united states at least in a relative sense is declining in power in the world and we can still remain and i believe will still remain a potent dominant force in the world and we need to accept that the conditions of past decades don't exist anymore and we're not used to this we're not ready for this psychologically americans have always been on top we think of ourselves as always getting our way and we're entering into a period when that's not going to be so easy the challenge is can we adapt our habits of dominance to a more equal multi-polar or. us
veterans who come back from war often tell the same stories. were going after the people who were killing civilians they were not interested in the wellbeing of their own soldiers either there already several generations of them so i just got this memo from the circulating branches off that says we're going to attack and destroy the government in seven countries in five years americans pay for the wars with their money others with their lives if we were willing to go into harm's way and willing to risk being killed for a war surely we can risk some discomfort for easiness
for. looks like the beginning of the french revolution where there were no egos and essential movement these people that you know various know each other never went or most of them never went to demonstrations the aft craftsman the middle class people from the working class background that's what they are. doing everything to be able to put as much pressure as published so that we do not get into that kind of a scenario in which nobody would wish to have venezuela's self-proclaimed interim leader refuses to rule out a military intervention as the crisis in the country intensifies putting more pressure on president nicolas maduro his government. activists in britain are raising the alarm over a form of try.
