What’s Going on in Haiti?

“I helped make Mexico, especially Tampico, safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. {My emphasis} I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefits of Wall Street. The record of racketeering is long. I helped purify Nicaragua for the international banking house of Brown Brothers in 1909—1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for American sugar interests in 1916. In China I helped to see to it that Standard Oil went its way unmolested.”

    As well, since most of the information included in embedded links (internal links that are underlined) or external links are about the Constitutional Republic of the United States of America (NOT a democracy) [Note: The United States system of governance was more influenced by the Iroquois Confederacy than the concepts of Greek “democracy.”]: Empire/Rogue State/Terrorist State/Neighborhood Bully/so—called only “Superpower” and Killer of Hope worldwide, including within the USA; if you send me information on what is going on in other nations, I would greatly appreciate that. I would like to make this page more worldly so that people really can see that War affects us ALL and show it too. Thank—you.
    Speaking of the USA, why are there troops and/or military bases in 156 nations in the world currently? That number of course does not include the Sovereign Indigenous Nations around the world though. How many more nations will be occupied by US military troops and/or bases by the end of 2004? 2005? Why? Is that an Empire or what?

    Will the people in this Empire breakthrough and rid ourselves of the Empire that we call our country/government? Or will this Empire be dethroned by people outside of the borders? The choice is up to us. Thus, are we robots/subjects or human human beings/citizens? What is a citizen? What is a subject? How do we become citizens? Should we strive to be worldly beings/people/citizens or citizens of a nation/country/state/territory/colony/Empire?

    Since the USA is currently in a War on Terrorism Terroristic War against the people of the world, of which the people of the fictive state of Iraq are only one of the many targets, I feel that it is good to give a brief historical perspective of other US interventions since 1890:

    I came to America because of the great, great freedom which I heard existed in this country. I made a mistake in selecting America as a land of freedom, a mistake I cannot repair in the balance of my lifetime.”
    Albert Einstein, 1947

    It is perfectly possible for a man to be out of prison, and yet not free — to be under no physical constraint and yet to be a psychological captive, compelled to think, feel and act as the representatives of the national state, or of some private interest within the nation, wants him to think, feel and act.

    “The nature of psychological compulsion is such that those who act under constraint remain under the impression that they are acting on their own initiative. The victim of mind—manipulation does not know that he is a victim. To him the walls of his prison are invisible, and he believes himself to be free. That he is not free is apparent only to other people. His servitude is strictly objective."
    Excerpt from Brave New World Revisited by Aldous Huxley, 1958.

    "Colonialism or imperialism, as the slave system of the West is called, is not something that is just confined to England or France or the United States. The interests in this country are in cahoots with the interests in France and the interests in Britain. It’s one huge complex or combine, and it creates what’s known not as the American power structure or the French power structure, but an international power structure. This international power structure is used to suppress the masses of dark—skinned people all over the world and exploit them of their natural resources."
    Malcolm X
    "We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the world — no longer a Government of free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of small groups of dominant men."
    Woodrow Wilson [U.S. President during World War I]
    "The U.S. must carry out some act somewhere in the world which shows its determination to continue to be a world power."
    Henry Kissinger, post—Vietnam blues, as quoted in The Washington Post, April 1975
    "Throughout the world, on any given day, a man, woman, or child is likely to be displaced, tortured, killed, or “disappeared”, at the hands of governments or armed political groups. More often than not, the United States shares the blame."
    Amnesty International, 1996
    "If war aims are stated which seem to be solely concerned with Anglo—American imperialism, they will offer little to people in the rest of the world. The interests of other peoples should be stressed. This would have a better propaganda effect."
    Private memo from The Council of Foreign Relations to the U.S. State Department, 1941

    "College courses in political science generally take one of two approaches when analyzing U.S. actions abroad. Some professors and textbooks are quite critical of what might be called the American colossus. In this ’American century,’ the United States has been the most powerful nation on earth and has typically acted to maintain its hegemony. This view holds that we Americans abandoned our revolutionary ideology long ago, IF INDEED WE EVER HELD ONE, and now typically act to repress the legitimate attempts at self—determination of other nations and peoples. [my emphasis]

    "More common is the realpolitik view. George Kennan, who for almost half a century has been an architect of and commentator on U.S. foreign policy, provided a succinct statement of this approach in 1948. As head of the Policy Planning Staff of the State Department, Kennan wrote in a now famous memorandum:

    "We have about 50% of the world’s wealth but only 6.3% of its population. In this situation, we cannot fail to be the object of envy and resentment. Our real test in the coming period is to devise a pattern of relationships which will permit us to maintain this position of disparity. We need not deceive ourselves that we can afford today the luxury of altruism and world benefaction——unreal objectives such as human rights, the raising of living standards, and democratization."
    Excerpt of Chapter 8 (“Watching Big Brother: What Textbooks Teach about the Federal Government”) of Lies My Teacher Told Me: Everything Your American History Textbook Got Wrong by James W. Loewen.

    What are the Foundations of the United States of America? Is the Destruction of the Constitutional Republic of the United States of America going on now? If so,what does that truly mean?

    "Starting after the multiple bombings of the Federal office building in Oklahoma City, April 19, 1995, I wrote and then spoke on talk radio about an aborted military coup. Brought home to me, however, was the reality that my fellow Americans had little knowledge or understanding of the masterstroke, the overthrow of government, whether for the good or for evil.

    "In the past, had we as Americans been clearly informed by the popular press of a putsch, the overthrow of government by violence, by political assassination, such as to benefit domestic or foreign powers? After all, who benefitted from the political assassination of President Abraham Lincoln if not the British and the French who held the means to swoop upon us at the time from their entrenched positions to the south and north of us, in Canada and Mexico. The British wanted to split apart the nation by aggravating the natural friction between the ideas of the North and the South in America. The French were ready to carve up America as well. Since at least the War of 1812, the British had plotted to take back this continent as a puppet colony with so—called ’Americans’ again as subjects of the British Crown. [To their credit, Czarist Russia at the time of the War Between The States, or as called, the American Civil War, attempted to aid Lincoln with the Czar’s naval fleet coming right offshore the U.S.]

    "Look what happened in the decades after the murder of Lincoln. President James Garfield was against the British controlling the growing financial power of the U.S. President William McKinley [the Brits hate the Irish] opposed the British trying to strangle the rise of American industrial power. Their political assassination in the years after that of Lincoln, in its simplest explanation, benefitted British attempts to grab back America.

    "Seldom, if ever, are these events explained in this way."

    Excerpt of an article entitled, "The Overthrow Of The American Republic, Part One," By Sherman H. Skolnick, 09/22/01.

    Who is an "American?"

    Without war materiel and other aid from European allies, future Indian wars were transformed from major international conflicts to domestic mopping—up operations. This result was central to the course of Indian—U.S. relations for the remainder of the century. Thus Indian wars after 1815, while they cost thousands of lives on both sides, would never again amount to a serious threat to the United States. Although Native Americans won many battles in subsequent wars, there was never the slightest doubt over who would win in the end.

    "Another result of the War of 1812 was the loss of part of our history. A century of learning [from Native Americans] was coming to a close. A century and more of forgetting——of calling history into service to rationalize conquest——was beginning. After 1815 Indians could no longer play what sociologists call the role of conflict partner——an important other who must be taken into account——so Americans forgot that Indians had ever been significant in our history. Even terminology changed: until 1815 the word Americans had generally been used to refer to Native Americans; after 1815 it meant European Americans."
    Excerpt of Chapter 4 ("Red Eyes") of Lies My Teacher Told Me: Everything Your American History Textbook Got Wrong by James W. Loewen.
