Killing Hope: US Military and CIA Interventions Since World War II
Is the United States a force for democracy? From China in the 1940s to Guatemala today, William Blum presents a comprehensive study of American covert and overt interference, by one means or another, in the internal affairs of other countries. Each chapter of the book covers a year in which the author takes one particular country case and tells the story - and each case throws light on particular US tactics of intervention.
What people are saying - Write a review
This is a review of a review - the review that starts "this guy is a Russian butt-licking retard". That first sentence demonstrates that the author has swallowed the MSM's metaprogramming against Russia and is thus desperately in need of reading an accurate history of the US's actual actions - as opposed to the fake facade perpetuated by the MSM and the entertainment/educational establishment - in the world since WWII. And Blum's book is a work of history. To try to give the impression that it is anything else shows a total lack of understanding of what history writing is.
The worst thing is that for some odd reason his is the only review on the page. I wonder why that might be? And lest anyone flag me as "just another conspiracy theorist," let me point out that the official narrative is the wackiest conspiracy theory of all. Read _Killing Hope_ and you'll see why. And, hey, "Butt-lick" - that includes you too.
PS By the way, "Butt-lick" - what did Russia ever do to you except win the war? Yeah, I mean WWII.
This guy is a Russian butt-licking retard. Some things he does say are true but his book is full of nonsense, exaggerations and apologies for the Communist Russian colonizers and North Korea. I cannot take someone who defends North Korea seriously. All this retard does is name the bad things the US did in certain countries (some times the US did not do anything bad at all), ignore what the conflict was about (e.g. the Russians trying to occupy and enslave everyone to force Communism on them) and all the good things about the involvements, add a bunch of Pro-Russian nonsense and make up retarded propaganda about how the US never did anything good even in heroic instances like in the Korean War and in the leadership in Western Europe to contain the Russian imperialists and colonizers.
