Democracy, but only in Washington

Democracy, but only in WashingtonAbout secret and obvious US military and terrorist operations in the world


The book of the American historian-researcher William Bloom "Murder of Democracy" is one of those rare works that literally turn the human worldview. With her revelations, she amazes even those who are well versed in the true goals and methods of the foreign policy of the United States.

The study, which describes 56 cases of secret and open US intervention in the affairs of sovereign states during the years of the Cold War, deals a strong blow to the illusions about the political processes in the world.

The book shows that the United States, contrary to their rhetoric and common opinion, was not engaged in promoting democracy in the world. On the contrary, in one state after another, methodically and ruthlessly, directly and with the hands of mercenaries, Washington destroyed undesirable movements, parties and people to bring its henchmen to power, ready to serve American interests. Not a single state, which in the twentieth century tried to take an independent course and carry out progressive reforms in the interests of its people, has not escaped the merciless American intervention. William Bloom provides unrelenting statistics.

From 1945 to 2003, the United States tried to overthrow governments in more than 40 states; suppressed more than 30 popular patriotic movements fighting against dictatorial regimes, bombed 25 countries; as a result, several million people died, and millions more were doomed to live in agony and despair.

In the Soviet era, any desire for independence in Washington was called "communism." And William Bloom argues that "Soviet expansion" and "communism" in most cases served as a pretext for American intervention. The author writes that the desire for independence and leftist aspirations were by no means imposed by the Soviet Union, but became the initiative of the peoples of the states themselves - in some cases the USSR helped them, but more often they did not.

In the early days of 2000, terrorism was replaced by “communism” as a pretext for aggression. And those states that, like Russia, cannot be attributed to such a threat, are becoming targets of harsh political pressure along the lines of "lack of democracy" and "violations of human rights."

W. Bloom's book is a textbook on true US foreign policy. It is also the most complete description of the tools of open and hidden activities of US foreign ministries and special services: from launching balloons with propaganda leaflets and forging food stamps with the aim of causing shortages and discontent of the population to terrorist acts under the flag of others and open bombardments with a mixture of defoliants and herbicides Agent Orange.

Initially, an anti-communist who dreamed of public service, William Bloom, he said, lost his illusions about American "democracy" during the Vietnam War.

In 1960, he worked in the US State Department, from the inside he saw what true American foreign policy is. As a result, his mission was to strive, as he says, "if not collapse, then at least stop the expansion of the American empire, which causes so much suffering to the whole world." Bloom did not become a communist, he was not a supporter of the Soviet system. He simply explores US interventions from the perspective of an honest historian and defender of true democracy as the will of the people. The author is not only a brilliant analyst and deep historian, he is also a famous activist, one of the leaders of protest against the imperial policy of the United States. William Bloom stands on the side of independence and self-determination of peoples, social progress and justice. He believes in the people, believes in his ability to choose the right path for himself and succeed - unless dictators set by the same Washington, police regimes and death squads do not stand in his way.

Bloom's book is extremely relevant today.

With the destruction of the Soviet Union, the United States did not change its goal setting - American foreign policy became even more aggressive in the absence of a deterrent.

Now they can bomb Yugoslavia and Libya with impunity. In Syria, as described by Bloom, the coup was organized by underground methods in 1957-1958 - today the United States is openly arming and providing combat training for terrorists as part of a forceful “regime change”. In Iran, in 1953, the CIA overthrew the democratically elected Prime Minister Mossadek along with British intelligence agencies — today they use a full arsenal of political, economic, military, and subversive methods against the Iranian leadership. “Gaddafi’s Problem”, after 40 years of continuous American attacks, in March 2011, the “final solution”, unique in its cruelty and hypocrisy, was found. As for Latin and Central America, the states of this region, which the USA has already considered as its backyard for two centuries, have not left the operational map of US open and secret operations for a day.

But the testimony from the chapter on China: “The Chinese insisted that the United States, especially in January-March 1952, dropped large numbers of bacteria and insects infected with bacteria over the territories of Korea and northeast China. They provided evidence of 38 captured by American pilots who allegedly flew deadly cargo aircraft. Many of them gave detailed details about the whole operation: the types of bombs and other containers dropped, the types of insects and the diseases they were carrying, etc. However, photographs of alleged bacteriological bombs and infected insects were published. Then, in August, the “International Scientific Committee” was created, consisting of scientists from Sweden, France, Great Britain, Italy, Brazil and the Soviet Union. After more than a two-month investigation in China, the committee submitted a report of about 600 pages with many photos and the following conclusion: “The peoples of Korea and China were indeed the targets of bacteriological attacks. The attacks were carried out using the means of the American armed forces, which used a wide variety of methods to accomplish their goals, some of which seemed to be designs developed by the Japanese during World War II. ”

Washington did everything to prevent the Left from coming to power in Italy. Another piece from the book:

"In January, 1948, the US Attorney General Tom Clark said:" Those who do not share the ideology of the United States of America should not be allowed to remain in this country. " In March, the Department of Justice, led by Clark, determined that Italians, who do not share the ideology of the United States, would not be allowed to emigrate or even visit America. It was another tactical step in the framework of the massed American campaign, the purpose of which was to prevent Italians who do not share the ideology of the United States to form the Italian government in the elections of the 1948 of the year. ”

We cannot know all about today's American operations, by virtue of their secrecy. But past interventions, described in detail by W. Bloom, clearly show the tactics, approaches, methods and behavioral patterns of the American empire. The only thing that changes with time is the technological support of the process - today the Internet and social networks have appeared.

“Murder of Democracy” is the third book in the “Real Politics” series, initiated by the Institute for Foreign Policy Studies and Initiatives.

The series publishes key publications of Western authors, revealing the true, real policy of the United States and its allies - in contrast to the propaganda version that we are served from Washington and the pro-American "nests" in Russia. These books for specialists are real textbooks on US foreign policy, which give an idea of ​​the American vision of the world and the means of its implementation. This is basic information, without which a true understanding of what happened and is happening in the world is impossible. And as you know, knowledge stories illuminates the understanding of the present and helps predict the future.

If you want to sit down at the notorious chessboard, you must know how such games were played in the past. "Our main task is to prevent the re-emergence of a new competitor in the former Soviet Union or in another place that poses a threat like the one that represented the Soviet Union," says the planning directive of the US military for 1994-1999 years. - We must take into account the interests of developed industrial countries to such an extent that discourages the hunt to challenge our leadership from new competitors or seek to change the established political and economic order. We must have mechanisms to keep our potential competitors from even thinking to play a more significant regional or global role. ” This strategy of the USA is implemented consistently, systematically and uncompromisingly.

Abounding with indisputable facts, details, and references to documents, William Bloom’s book is of undoubted value to a non-expert who wants to know the truth about those who today impose “democratic standards” on us.

            Moscow is the concentrated essence of Russia. Since the time of the Napoleonic invasion, and perhaps even earlier, the majority of the population of Moscow has been newcomers. Moscow is the crossroads of 12 roads, hence its advantages and hence its problems.
            In short, "there is no reason to blame the mirror if the face is crooked"

    According to US federal laws, the government does not have the right to intervene in internal conflicts, much less change the rulers of other countries. Today this law looks like a primitive mockery, a spit towards the world community.

    Russians all their lives tried to seek justice (in everything and in international relations too), and the amers quickly gave up doing this, as they realized that by indulging self-interest and intimidating, you will achieve more. This is, in general, the whole recipe for their success. Plus military and financial power. Cynical, but it works.

    Expansion is the raison d'être of empires. The USA is an empire and cannot but expand. Expanding territorially (the Russian Empire) is the century before last, expanding economically (Great Britain) is the past. The US is expanding politically. This needs to be resisted, but the best defense is attack and we need to expand ourselves. To expand not politically (this is yesterday), but ideologically, spiritually, roughly speaking - ideologically. Alas, it is not yet clear that our "elite" understands this. While the upper and middle strata of our society follow the West, they are guided by Western ideals, principles and ideas

      Empires have always expanded in all areas, and an imperial ideology is also needed on which imperial politics is built and politics should be supported by the imperial economy, and this all together gives living space as well as material and human resources. If at least in ideology, in politics, the economy is slipping, the empire starts to ache. And if there is a recession, the empires begin to die, though this is a long and painful process.

    Not one country in the world does not cause so much hatred for decades. They brought so much evil into the world that it will be tenfold strengthened by it. States have long been ripe for a "big purge." And do not say that the people are not to blame. Any people are responsible for the actions of their rulers.

    According to the Washington Post, on May 21, 2013, US Vice President Biden gave a speech in which he acknowledged the exclusive role of Jews in bringing the idea of ​​"gay marriage" into law in several states of America.
    In addition, he said that “85% of all the changes that have occurred recently in Hollywood and in the public media have become possible only because these industries are led by Jews ... whose influence is enormous ... truly enormous ...".
    So maybe America is ruled by Jews, and not by their best representatives, but we also remember the Jewish Museum of Putin, the story with the library that the Hasidim want to hide, so as not to show their true colors, who made the revolution in 17, Germany pays victims again Holocaust 1 billion. The list can be long. The facts speak for themselves Jews are evil, whether they like it or not.

    This bloom is unlikely to be understood in America itself. Americans love their home. The affairs of the whole country are of little concern to ordinary people in the United States. The affairs of foreign countries that fell under the blows of American missiles - all the more! That is why everyone loves and hates America so much - there is no need to think about anyone other than yourself and your loved ones. There, ordinary guys are not persecuted to fight for communism or democracy, since the army is contracted there.
