So, I was reading this article on all those conflicts the US has provoked over the decades, the 20 to 30 million dead people and hundreds of million of injured people resulting from those US wars and schemes...

Funny, Hollywood is incessantly spitting out those trashy Marvel and other movies that, in their simplistic way, deal with good vs evil, and of course good always prevails.

But it's all just part of the facade of a rogue state, that started long before the current administration.

Even Pompeo admits it:
"MIKE POMPEO: But in terms of how you think about problem sets, I – when I was a cadet, what’s the first – what’s the cadet motto at West Point? You will not lie, cheat, or steal, or tolerate those who do. I was the CIA director. We lied, we cheated, we stole. (Laughter.) It’s – it was like – we had entire training courses. (Applause.)"


Makes me wonder, are Americans in denial or do they simply not know or care about their governments', or rather regimes' rogue actions decade after decade? Or even worse, do they support them?

As it says in the link above:

"It is essential that Americans learn more about this topic so that they can begin to understand the pain that others feel. Someone once observed that the Germans during WWII “chose not to know.” We cannot allow history to say this about our country. The question posed above was “How many September 11ths has the United States caused in other nations since WWII?” The answer is: possibly 10,000."

We destroyed the governments in Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, which led to the deaths of several hundred thousand, displaced hundreds of thousands more, and then complain when they want to get away from it.

Next, we will be blamed for destroying Venezuela.
But only by the usual nutcase posters and bloggers.

Switch from globalism to nationalism where we mind our own busines.

oh gee another hit piece on how bad the US is to the rest of the world, never mind that it is loaded with falacies and presumptions by the author. typical that there just enough truth in the article to make it seem legitimate on the surface.


i will also note that articles like this come out when republicans hold the white house, but rarely if ever when democrats hold the white house, making the suggestion that it is republicans that are the evil killers of the world.

Our CIA overthrew the democratically elected governments in Guatemala and Honduras and propped up the dictator in El Salvador. That is fact, they don't deny it. It is even in the newer history books.

"The US - a rogue state by any other name"

I did not say anything about Republicans. In fact, Obama was also a sleazy guy responsible for the death of many innocent civilians.

Clinton supported a coup in Latin America that has lead to poverty, violence, and mass emigration.

Indeed, Venezuela would already be recovering without the sanctions. The UN also said that the US sanctions are largely to blame for the humanitarian crises in Venezuela. Meanwhile the US-backed parallel president of Venezuela seems to be involved in the embezzlement of $3m.

Sure, go ahead, shoot the messenger and stick your head into the sand

Oh gee, you found an author who suffers from the same dementia you do. So happy for you.
