poles and other foreign forces and we became an overseas empire by taking islands in various parts of the world and then after the second world war we began a global empire they're all we are playing on the whole billiard. denied 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 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 press and in the press of that leader's own country. americans love to think they 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 a visit. years ago i wrote a book about how the united states overthrew the government of quote a monologue in nineteen fifty four. the case of the 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 and hundreds of people lost their lives. to. those new c.f.o. you to say that as you see the movie was. done. in the new book i don't them on a bullock you know on the avignon and you know yeah on that front and then i remember them. but i mean for one of the really good many you saw none of them.
at this time a giant american company the united fruit company owned a huge amount. not so that when they want to say is just being held vacant while many guatemalans are starving because they didn't have a way in to grow food. i.e. not down we remember gabby and i don't drive down in the. order that i. know women. no one wanted an instant win. and get done those little three
cause. i don't know what to get. yeah then again as you know but going to get them. fills us. now in atlanta. and it's going up and them. so a president arbenz on the water while the 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 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. by.
slim and trim the headers go. up dramatically apart become in. her particular good we were going to pick the winner along for you because we're not. going to come in from the look in the gears and i get a four hundred one. later civil war broke out something like two hundred thousand people were killed in that conflict over more than thirty years. i mean is it being able. to go. and. you know who's the lad if them be mia.
as the man. from the house he laughed take something. from me for my go. see if you are you scared off with good men so soon they. say they don't have to milk this here i'm told look at the end of. the never. researched. one. excuse to feel that they wanted to steal our people i will spoil the story for the voice of
them there. is. so the first one 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 humanitarian intervention we only do it we don't do anything for ourselves in fact we sacrifice ourselves. for the good of others. for the.
american involvement in the overthrow of the government of libya the government of omar khadafi was the number example then call of a number of impulses in the american interventionist spirit. as matt. was in saudi how we're not the could be and had then walked and if it had been wished them i don't really. have. seen just a few to fuck up. a sea assia. i said
all off. medina because he will from the innocent of her feet now. and then walk on the men and the house and at the husband then he. would move me yes it will be i can be in the middle of the field both had their good but that no one with a wayne woman in them as you should be. 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 in 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 with things other than.
just say. this is a very. what did they. say oh. yes. i. only thing on base and because i was a bit out of i've been at. the dentist and that's mostly about the something you can day. it. will be. a good. one i'm done. with i'm up at the top of my. something and said ask me anyone puzzles me much and i'll go.
ok be my. feet. i've been saying the numbers mean something they matter to us as over one trillion dollars in debt more than ten twenty colored foreign champions each day. eighty five percent of the global wealth you want to the old from rich eight point six percent market saw thirty percent i just want to secure some with four hundred to five hundred trees per second per second and bitcoin rose to twenty thousand
dollars. china is building two point one billion dollars a i. industrial park but don't let the numbers overwhelm. the only numbers you need to remember one one just shows you can't afford to miss the one and only. what politicians to do something to. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president one should know more somehow want to be breached. that you do like to be prosperous like that before three in the morning can't be good. i'm interested always in the lawyers in the house.
was that i do any kind of god even in the. month of. ramadan was not the methane and then obama. and the want them and feast on and on that i left them off any special fee abbas cost kind of. national by any commission i want to be just any i'm a company in vienna what. kind . of stuff. because eco is a business that i called up the president of. the
from. the visited these wrote a famous history of the cold uneasy and 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. islamiya what can be the mubarak not to be a leader but nobody and yet. ask any.
we believe that we are an exceptional nation this is a phrase you hear a lot in the united states we call an 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 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 end it. all why it was a long term american project it began with a religious missionary they left from boston in the eighteen twenty years 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. and. this is the only policy on the back row. this was the executive monarchs
building. 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 awad 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 to secure the new white government and a few years later the white 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 hoeing kingdom. 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 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 its central central in the central pacific so there's a central location that ships. enter point ports after disarming refurbish the following ports rearm and go back fighting. the medical world who was asian to impede my mighty greed and so it was by this very delicious they were present all the things it was how do you know you to be d.c. nine eleven and ninety three so what we see rising up out of that because people are these giant monsters that are jewelry. documents of an exaggeration. talking to each other basically saying to write this book you 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 off. 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. but we're here. on a charter school. by school level that we're going to be visiting. you share with people student a local. kind of turned 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 taking ninety three what we know that. oh united states of america illegally overthrew him with what he now hold the is the united states maintain that paul or despite having no mule already that's a little military might get here when i said military the threat of force violent sprouse who are you how else are they in maintaining power vikki clarifying the world and their population we just talked about how do you get spending at two hours and in traffic we're all americans are we going to 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 but 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 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. in
twenty forty you know bloody revolution here to correct the demonstrations going from being relatively peaceful political protests to be creasing the violent revolution is always spontaneous or is it you know here i mean i list book video and put him in the new bill is that i'm new school in the middle of the former ukrainian president recalls the events of twenty fourteen. those who took the lead in this did over five billion dollars to assist ukraine in these and other goals that will ensure a secure and prosperous and democratic place
level was selling you on the idea that dropping bombs brings police to the chickenhawk forcing you to fight the battles. that you thought for the tell you that because of the public by file for the most important news today. off the bat has been telling you are not cool enough to buy their products. on the hawks that we along with our audience will watch.
