  • Griffin,
    Do this : “Killing Hope ” website and review the 54 U.S. interventions listed and tell me how many were for the purpose of establishing democracy ?
    Or go to any site you can find that lists all the interventions by the U.S and list those done to restore or establish democratic elections rather than overthrow them.
    Then tell me how it is that in the case of Cuba alone, establishing free elections has suddenly, after 100 years of consistent foreign policies and actions to the exact opposite ,become of interest to the government of the USA .
    The central purpose of U.S. foreign policy has been to prevent socialism i.e. DEMOCRATIC economies since the U.S. -European of the Soviet Union in 1918 and before the Soviets became a totalitarian ( non-communist, non-socialist state .
    The unilateral declaration of the temporarily divided Vietnam to be two separate countries by the U.S. in 1954-56 was made to prevent the free elections scheduled by the Vietnamese-French peace agreement and in which President Eisenhower said Ho Chi Minh would get 80% of that free vote. ( Much as that same percentage of American colonialists would have voted to be independent of England)
    Nope , sorry, that official U.S State Department line about establishing democracy and gaining restitution for seized properties are simply cover stories to mask naked aggression and imperialism .
    You should learn from history
    The economic war on the people of Cuba is simply a continuation of that log-standing policy.
