Abby Martin (formerly of RT's 'Breaking the Set') hosts this 25 minute video that presents a history of U.S quest for empire, from the late 19th century up to today's obsession with global hegemony.

Abby covers U.S. colonialism in Latin America and Asia, WW1 and WW2, Middle East policy, the expansion of U.S. military bases, the growth of the Military Industrial Complex and the Global War on Terror--and more.

Abby interviews David Vine, author of "Base Nation, How U.S. Military Bases Abroad Harm America and the World" and Ben Griffin, a former British SAS soldier who became disillusioned with the Iraq War.

Highly recommended.
