Fleeing the regime – by other means:
From Spain in the 1980s, to Brazil in the 1990s.
Fleeing to Canada in 1970s and 1970s (at the end of the cold war), to the US in the 1980s.
Fleeing to the Philippines, in the 1970s.
Fleeing to Germany in the 1970s, to Poland in the 1940s and 1945, and most importantly, to Argentina during the 1980s when many flappers fled to the US under the cover of repression, and later to the Philippines in the 1970s during the Dirty War (including the US backed and heavily armed Philippine military intervention in Mindanao) which was responsible for the displacement of more than a million people.
The US has a long history of covertly destabilising foreign regimes, including their domestic ones, to justify the arming of domestic agents abroad, including with the use of agents like Oliver North, a former CIA employee, to undermine national governments from Latin America and the Gulf to Korea to Russia. The US is currently financing the violent overthrow of Syrian President Assad, and is also financing the destabilisation of Honduras to bring down its democratically elected president, Manuel Zelaya.
Why does the US use covert agents (often with US military equipment) to promote the cause of violent revolution?
Most governments have been in bed with the US for much of history. They can’t afford to risk the wrath of the US and its friends, whose support could lead to a costly civil war in their country, which would likely mean the end of their regime. Thus, many governments are bought off with bribes and special favors.
This helps explain the US’s extensive use of agents like Oliver North to promote the cause of violent revolution in Latin America, and how many more of these same corrupt regimes have been toppled after the ‘dirty war’ has ended – Honduras and Iran today, Guatemala and Chile and Guatemala today, and Guatemala now.
Is the US not the world’s biggest criminal empire?
The US is the only major imperialist power to have been on the receiving end of a US-led bombing campaign for the past century. For example:
1917: Britain, Italy and Japan (three of the first countries to join the US in World War I and whose governments collaborated with it) all bomb Iraq, causing the destruction of thousands of homes and hundreds of thousands of civilians, in order to justify their intervention, which led to the
