are often just the beginning another thing you like to do is place some military pressure on the countries a true talking about. 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. in nineteen fifty one ottomans came to power in guatemala to being a looked at by the people in washington the us president received the usual courtesies of us. years ago i wrote a book about how the united states overthrew the government of quote a moloch in nineteen fifty four.
the case of guatemala is a great example hundreds of people lost their lives. those who knew see a pull your the same as you see them will do is. to. give them independence and i want them on a bullock in the car in the alley on at the stereo mounted on the memory of it and i'm. not on the for one bill really didn't know you so much but not.
at this time a giant american company the united fruit company owned huge amounts of landing. and much of that land they were not just being held vacant while many guatemalans are starving because they. i'm way into growth. in the. order that i. know. no one month and then there's no way to. get those little of the requests. at all that they would know what it is that i don't like. yeah. but going to get the end of. that and 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 and concluded that these socialist orientation of guatemala was dangerous to the united states. gave. them in through their head to go. to multiple have part become in.
her particular good we want to put the food over here i won't go to you because we're. not here to correct the government so if you look in the gears and i get a one hundred one. later civil war broke out something. two hundred thousand people were killed in that conflict over more than thirty here . i need to be able. to go. but you know. it's them i'll be near. as the men. come up with something.
then we convince ourselves that that company is our geo political enemy. then we sell the intervention. as a humanitarian intervention we only do it to help them we don't do anything for ourselves in fact we sacrifice ourselves. for the good of others. american involvement in the overthrow of the government of libya the government of omar khadafi was another example then call it
a number of impulses in the american interventionist spirit. as sia was in saudi when he was not the could be and had then walked and if it had been wished them i don't really. have. seen that yet defeat the fuck up and see a see. them as that all off. medina because he will from the innocent will freak now and then he. would move me assets to a bank and be in the middle of a full blown federal judge but that no one with a wayne woman. as usual funny libby.
little. 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 khadafi and in that operation of course he was killed. so we saw 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 and things together.
those whom you know most of the best to be in your years and years it was notable to. not like you. please don't leave the weasel though i did my best religion as the wife. left. me if this isn't. good enough. for. these school kids. and their union recruits. from. you know world of big partisan groovy lot and conspiracy it's time. to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that made history media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smarter we need to stop slamming the door on the bats and shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the
middle for the truth the time is now for watching closely watching the hawks. as you read the stand and hear from us and. i know this that i know are right true but these there are rather democrats i thought the for fourth down because of that. i'm going to let combat of i don't cut him then you cut and kick and. i don't lose each other for a trifle not that it. necessarily on the hey i'm not doing. good it's whole fool place choice i knew you had them and hey i think the time in
neighborhood you cannot. let in homs last content but if that was a man and said ask. you cannot for coffee my love them nothing was that i do any kind of good even in the. month unless. i'm the one of them and things going on that i left him to death any sessional fee our boss calls come on my work in national by any vision i want to be just any other company of young or what. is the kind. of stuff.
because ego is a business out of. the from. this city's wrote a famous history of the cold and museum 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 sit in these 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 no out of
i think. 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 because.
my name is dr king hussein and i am a white political scientists. in one thousand nine hundred three my country was invaded by the united states and we've 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 an end. all why it was the 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 hawaii. and. this is the only policy on the back row. this was the executive monarchs bilby. hawaii by eighty 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. leader of these white awad 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 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. 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 honking the. so we're at right now this is work camp smith this is headquarters for the pacific command of the united states what falls under the command structure of the pacific command.
and why it was taken by the united states were invaded in order for the united states to control pearl harbor because of hawaii's location its central central in the central pacific so there's a central location that ships could enter hoeing ports after disarming refurbish leave hole in ports rearm and go back fighting. middle middle who are busy asian are going to be quiet i might be greedy so it was by this very belief that they were present all the things it was how do you feel you should be easy ninety and ninety three so what we see rising up out of that because people are these giant monsters that are actually read the document and it's a sure. document easy to basically say we're right this is what we are
worthy to know the whole truth and absolute most people again and the time see from the newspapers that receive. the wave devalue 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. while we're here hello come on a charter school. by school level that we're going to be visiting. and share with you folks who have a local one going to turn it over to you and your plans so. anything for you to
look we already know oh i was just standing national was this nation state and for fifty years we celebrated to the united states maintain that paul or despite having moved you'll already know this new the military why do you want to send military threat of force violent sprouse for you how else you've been maintaining power. over population we just talked about how many guest video two hours of in traffic. we're all americans are waiting to. see what'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 and 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. the
. country's oil. and just touch on this for a moment terribly i mean scotland does have a lot of oil and the whole thing is mightily confusing so the u.s. could consider invading britain right now during this breaks of curfuffle and take control scottish oil i mean i'm all for that. u.s. 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 they're 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 them 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 easiness. of us today i would think you have patients who are. blinds here on r.t. the u.s. warns russian military response options if moscow as washington alleges continues to violate the i.n.f. nuclear treaty that after the whole trump officially started america's withdrawal
