The United States, despite what you learned in school, was never intended to be a pure democracy. The forefathers of the United States attacked the idea as nothing better than dictatorship by the mob, the sorts of mobs which they had seen repeatedly manipulated by the British Empire.

The roster of documented coups and bloodbaths supported by both republicans and democrats since the end of World War II is a veritable amoral massacre of villainy, deception, deceit, and collective hypocrisy.

These Pentagon warmongerings include Iran, Guatemala, Indonesia, Pakistan, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Brazil, the Balkans, Georgia, the Philippines, Panama, Egypt, Iraq, Libya, Malaysia, most of Central and South America, and most recently Syria, Yemen and now, Ukraine.

All these countries were given the same full treatments of horrific genocide, ruthless austerity demanded by the IMF and World Bank, and bombing of the countries back to the most primitive basis of society.

The entire continent of Africa, like Africa's Great Rift Valley that holds the world's greatest concentration of raw materials, has been the scene of similar genocidal warfare and raw materials looting, with child soldiers pressed into the killing by the Pentagon and CIA.

The economies of Mexico, Central America, and most of South America have been turned into outsourced and isolated cheap-labor manufacturing slave operations, surrounded by the production and transportation infrastructure for the CIA's organized crime drug operations.

The profits from these heroin and cocaine illegal 'ops' are part of the secretive 'black budget' run by the NSA, and fuel the Ponzi scheme otherwise known as Wall Street and the City of London.

Numerous political leaders have been assassinated by the CIA and organized crime. The list includes, to name a few, progressive leaders such as Patrice Lubumba, Aldo Moro, Indira Gandhi, Salvador Allende, Enrico Mattei, John F. Kennedy, Robert Kennedy, Thomas Merton, Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, Sven Olaf Palme and Paul Wellstone.

They have also murdered progressive pro-development bankers, such as Germany's Alfred Herhausen, who openly challenged the zero growth and austerity and interest apartheid machinations of the IMF and World Bank.

After the bankruptcy of the Soviet Union in the 1990s by the corrupt Bush administration using, in part, 286 billion in 10 year treasury bills that came due the week of 9/11, there was a universal understanding among political leaders that the expansion of NATO would be a foolish provocation toward Russia. Sanity however, would not prevail.

The U.S. The Secretary of State James Baker in the Reagan administration had promised following the unification of Germany that NATO would not expand beyond the German borders. The commitment not to expand NATO was also made by Great Britain and France. This seemed to be the coming of a new social global order.
