we became an overseas empire by taking iowans in various parts of the world and then after the second world war we began a. global empire now we are playing on the whole billiard. denied states has always had a variety of tools to use and its attacks on other countries. economic sanctions are are often just the beginning another thing you like to do is place some military pressure on the countries a talking about and there has to be an effort to demonize that country and the
leader of that country particularly in our own caress 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 u.s. president received the usual courtesies of us to visit. years ago i wrote a book about how the united states overthrew the government of quantum allah in nineteen fifty four. the case of water is a great example of american call for action during the period of the one nine
hundred fifty s. when covert action was at a peak. the country lost its legitimate government down to its of people lost their lives. those new c.f.o. you to say that as he says she will do is. to. give them and i don't them on the look in on the abbey on at the moment the memory of them. but i mean for one bill really didn't know you so much but not.
at this time a giant american company the united fruit company owned a huge amount. some way. in. the not to that way what you say is just being held vacant while many guatemalans are starving because they didn't have the land to grow food. i.e. not down we remember gabby and i don't drive down in the. order that i. no one month and i didn't. get those little of the 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 land so it could be divided up and given to poor 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. there was the. same in three hundred go. up
dramatically in part become in. her particular income we were going to put the food over here i won't go to you because we're not. going to come in some people kind of gives and i get a reminder of the. later civil war broke out something like two hundred thousand people were killed in that like over more than thirty years. they need to be able. to go. and. you know who. it's them be near.
is. that. the government that we don't like shows bad faith by bothering an american company. 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 a number of variable then call it a number of impulses in the american interventionist spirit. as. was in saudi when i know 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 it all off. medina because he
will from the innocent will be no american will come in and look on at the man and the house and at the husband then he. would move me assets pull back and be in the middle of the field both had to do it but that no one with a way in well many of them as usual for me and 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 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 and things come together.
i. know. i think syphilis has a big a child's. election. they have election people are suffering from many things. secure i think. begin to think that they can help the country and to make it to become secure and stable country so i think he has a big chance i think the people they got ninety percent of the people they gonna.
the happiest the safest time when that action. what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy confrontation let it be an arms race off and spearing dramatic to follow the only closely i'm going to exist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time to sit down and talk. to us in order to guarantee obeyance by the population will engage in soft totalitarianism and that's clearly on the march and the population is ready for it we know they were those had to say i hope they go they're getting ready for their get ready to be controlled.
from the from this city's wrote a famous history of the peloponnesian wars woody observes there is. the war or 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. 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 you know out of nowhere neck down. islamiya what can be the mubarak. but nobody and yet.
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 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 what it. called why it was a long term american project it began with a religious missionary they left from boston in the eighteen twenty s. to go to hawaii and live there to spend the rest of their lives civilizing the poor savages and barbarians as we saw who lived in hawaii. 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. if which was here legislative and judicial which is across the street. the leader of these white a was actually came to washington to win permission from the president of the united states to overthrow the government of the kingdom of why 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 work 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 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 it's central central in the central pacific so there's a central location that ships. enter ports after disarming refurbish. ports rearm and go back fighting. the middle middle as he gazed into the interview why i might be greedy so it was by this very delicious resents all the things it was happier for you to be d.c. nine eleven and one third so what we see rising up out of that because people are these. monsters that are actually reads documents of an exaggeration. talking to each other basically saying we're to write this book we are worthy to know the whole truth and the so it's all still up again and piracy
from the newspapers that received being. cut. we've developed an unusual. view of the world because of our location we have huge oceans and a couple of week 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. on a charter school. by school level that we're going to be visiting. and share with you a local one going to turn it over to you and your class so. anything for you feel
like we already know oh i was just standing national was this nation state and for fifty years we celebrated thinking ninety three what we know that. oh united states of america illegally overthrew him with no hope of the of the united states maintain that power despite having moved you off already that's really military why do you hear what i said military that threat of force violent sprouse what you how else are they maintaining power in. their population we just talked about how many guest fania two hours and in traffic we're all americans are waiting to hear was. but yours.
we are the evidence. that 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 an 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. these
balls to go to the one following. germany if you are there gun crews decide to move ahead. with. speaking to gather you thirty for example and they. would be for a level they kind of integration that's does fall civil so it does appear in paula will not proving she will not be part of the change. but rather the stand and hear from us and. move from one house.
