hawaii by eight hundred ninety three was a raid. leader of these white a lot it actually came to washington to win permission from the president of the united states to overthrow the government of the kingdom of all why he received that permission he went home he organized a coup in which the hawaiian kingdom was overthrown american marines were quickly landed to secure 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.
6:51 pm
marines landed this road here is where they marched from honolulu harbor and they occupied this location right here when they invaded my country the hoeing kingdom. so we're at right now this is where camp smith this is headquarters for the pacific command and it overlooks pearl harbor and pro harbor is a naval base for the united states so it falls under the come. structure of the pacific command. he was taken by the united states were invaded in order for the united states to control pearl harbor because of hawaii's location ships could enter point ports

6:55 pm
we're not the war crimes ourselves. what 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 the past decades don't exist anymore and we're not used to this we're not ready for

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 is several generations of them so i just got this memo from the search for answers officers were going to attack and destroy their governments and 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 and surely we can risk some discomfort for an easy for. washington's force regime change
