Dossier on America

Foreign Aid (development assistance)

U.S. gives 0.2% of GNP for foreign aid, the lowest amongst
all donor countries.

Internationally agreed-upon target is 0.7%

17 million people, including 11 million children, die every year
from easily preventable diseases and malnutrition.

800 million people are hungry or malnourished.
2 billion people live in poverty (on $2 a day), and 1 billion
living in absolute poverty (on $1 a day).

2 billion people lack access to proper sanitation, and 1
billion do not have safe drinking water.

275 million children never attend or complete primary
school. 870 million adults are illiterate.

If the U.S., along with other rich donor countries,
fulfilled their aid obligations, there would be enough to fund the U.N.
Millennium Development Goals, a recently agreed upon set of U.N. targets
aimed at addressing many of the above issues.

Estimated cost of achieving the Millennium Goals is
$100-150 billion a year.

A mere 0.5% tax on America's (financial) millionaires,
whose combined wealth equals $8 trillion, would be
sufficient to allow America to fulfill its foreign aid obligation.

War on Iraq

Up to 500,000 people could die in a war with Iraq
A U.S.-led war against Iraq would be a pre-emptive, large-scale
invasion, without evidence of an imminent threat to
the security of the United States.

Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (winner of the
Nobel Peace Prize)

Iraq Sanctions and the Gulf War

Over 500,000 children (under the age of 5) have died from
U.S. imposed economic sanctions on Iraq since the Gulf War

Up to 1.5 million people total have died from the sanctions.
100,000-200,000 Iraqi soldiers and civilians died in the U.S.-led Gulf War.

"War on Terror"

War in Afghanistan

3000-5000 Afghan civilians were killed in the campaign
against Al-Qaeda and the Taliban regime.

Guantanamo Bay prison

Prisoners were held without trial or the standard safeguards
of "prisoner of war" status, violating international standards for the
treatment of prisoners.

Civil rights and liberties in America

The rights of Americans are being diminished,
restricted, and violated, through mechanisms such as the Patriot Act.

Over 1,000 detentions and deportations of mostly
Arab men in America without any terrorism charges.
Maltreatment and violations of rights (including proper
access to attorneys, contact with families, etc.) during
detention were reported in many cases.


Fingerprinting and photographing of visitors from
certain Arab countries.

Support for a policy of covert assassinations/killings
of suspected terrorists abroad.

International Treaties, Conventions, and Conferences

America's stance on many international treaties places
it in the company of some of the world's most vile regimes
and worst human rights violators.

World Summit on Sustainable Development
U.N. sponsored international conference aimed at addressing
some of the biggest issues pertaining to the
environment, poverty, and economic development.
Summit ended almost in failure, with very few concrete
commitments and timetables.
The U.S. was "the single biggest obstacle toward achieving
progress", refusing to agree to any substantive commitments and goals.

International Criminal Court
An historic achievement in human rights, the court's aim is
to bring to justice perpetrators of crimes against humanity,
genocide, and war crimes. The court aims to prevent a
repeat of some of the greatest crimes and atrocities
committed in the 20th century including the Holocaust,
the Khmer Rouge genocide in Cambodia, and the Rwanda
U.S. took unprecedented steps to undermine the new
court, including planning to "unsign" the ICC treaty
and pressuring other countries to sign bilateral immunity

Kyoto Protocol on Global Warming
The treaty is the primary international instrument aimed
at curbing greenhouse gas emissions in order to prevent
global warming. Global warming is expected to increase
the Earth's temperature by 3C (5.4F) in the next 100
years, resulting in multiple adverse effects on the environment
and human society, including widespread species loss,
ecosystem damage, and flooding of populated human settlements.
The U.S. is the largest greenhouse gas producer in the world.
The U.S. is the only main country not to ratify the Kyoto Protocol.

CEDAW (Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of
Discrimination Against Women)
The main international treaty designed to protect the
rights of women worldwide, and ending the exploitation
of and discrimination against women.
The only countries that have signed but not ratified are
the US, Afghanistan, Sao Tome and Principe.

U.N. Torture Treaty protocol
Attempting to block the new treaty after 10 years of
efforts by the international community to implement and
enforce the treaty ratified by most countries, including the U.S.

Anti-Ballistic Missile (ABM) Treaty
U.S. officially withdrew from the landmark arms treaty, December 2001.

Landmine Ban Treaty
Landmines maim or kill approximately 26,000 civilians every
year, including 8,000 to 10,000 children.
U.S. refused to sign the treaty, along with Russia, China,
India, Pakistan, Iran, Iraq, Vietnam, Egypt, and Turkey. December 1997

Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty
U.S. failed to ratify the ban on nuclear testing, and continues
to show opposition.
The treaty is ratified by 89 countries including France, Great
Britain, and Russia.

Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention Treaty
Killed a 1994 protocol designed to strengthen the Convention
by providing for on-site inspections

CITES Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species
U.S. announced support for the renewal of ivory trade, November 2002.

Convention on the Rights of the Child
Only two countries in the world have refused to ratify this
human rights treaty -- Somalia and the U.S.

Child Soldiers Protocol
There are 300,000 child soldiers today.
The U.S. has yet to ratify the treaty.

UN Agreement to Curb the International Flow of Illicit Small
Arms, July 2001
Small arms and light weapons are responsible for the vast
majority of casualties in modern day conflicts, of which 3
out of 4 casualties are civilians.
The US was the only nation to oppose it.

Durban Conference Against Racism
U.S. withdrew from the international conference aimed at
combating racism around the world.


Global AIDS Crisis
3 million people die of AIDS every year. 70 million people will
die of AIDS by the year 2020.
The U.S. gives much less than its fair share (in relation to
America's wealth) to the Global AIDS Fund, the primary international
body established to fund global AIDS prevention, treatment and
care projects around the world. The Global Fund is calling for
$10 billion a year from donor countries.
The U.S. is also trying to block the manufacturing of
inexpensive generic medicines which are readily available in
the developed countries, but that are far too expensive for
most of the world's AIDS patients. These drugs can dramatically
increase the quality of life and life expectancy of AIDS patients.

-AIDS researcher Boyd E. Graves has announced the
forcing of an historic court case against the US military,
in which he claims proof that the virus was created under
the US Special Virus Program. Documents obtained by the
General Accounting Office and US Health Administration
seem to support his claim.

U.S. financial obligations to the United Nations
U.S. is starting to slowly repay its massive debt of $1 billion.

United Nations Population Fund
November 2002, U.S. threatens to withdraw its support
for a landmark family planning agreement that the United
States helped write 8 years ago.
July 2002, U.S. withheld previously approved aid of $34
million to UNFPA

Embargo against Cuba in violation of repeated U.N. General
Assembly resolutions
U.N. General Assembly passed a resolution in November
2002, for the 11th consecutive year, calling for an end to
the U.S. embargo.
The resolution passed 173-3, with the U.S., Israel and the
 Marshall Islands opposing.
The Cuban government estimates the negative effect of
 the blockade at more than $67 billion.

One-sided support for Israel in the conflict with Palestinians
Israel is in violation of several U.N. resolutions.

US Nuclear Posture Review
The principle of deterrence has guided international security
policy since the Cold War.
The U.S. is now rejecting the policy of deterrence in favor of
using nuclear weapons as instruments that could be used in
fighting wars.

National Security Strategy 2002

The U.S. stated its aim of global military domination.

Incorporates first-strike, pre-emptive war.

Calls for development of new low-yield, earth-penetrating nuclear weapons

Nuclear arsenal
10,000-20,000 nuclear warheads remain in the U.S. arsenal.
U.S. the only country to have used a nuclear weapon.

Military spending
U.S. has the largest military spending budget in the world.

Arms trade
America is the largest supplier of the arms trade, and provider
of weapons to other countries
The arms trade is a major contributing factor to armed
conflicts around the world.

Missile Defense
The U.S. is planning an expensive missile defense system
that threatens to destabilize global security. The system
has proven to be ineffective, and any reported successful
tests utilised homing beacons to locate target warheads.

America's wealth compared to world's poor
Average income in America is over 100 times greater than
that of the poorest 1 billion people on the planet.

Domestic prison population
Prison population of 2 million is the highest incarceration rate in the world.

1. Chronological list of interventions, with the purpose of
effecting "regime change," attempted or materially supported by
the United States - whether primarily by means of overt force
(OF), covert operation (CO), or subverted election (SE):

a) OF and SE imply, necessarily, prior and continuing CO.

b) OF = directly applied state terrorism by the United States
repressive apparatus i.e. the Departments of War/Defense, Energy,
Treasury, and State. N.B. the formation of the National Security
Council (1947) and the Office of Homeland Security (2002).

c) CO = reconnaissance, classical coups d'etat, legal harassment,
 disinformation (through media, legal, NGO, student, labor, and
other front groups), bribery, sabotage, assassination, proxy warfare,
running ratlines for fascist emigre groups, and assorted other
clandestine activities.

d) SE = a particular species of CO, comparatively non-violent,
 high plausible deniability, usually involves dumping tons of cash
and campaign technologies into the hands of rightist groups during
elections, sowing discord in leftist parties, buying up media space in
order to destabilize electorates, tampering directly with ballot results,
and hiring jackboots to actively threaten and brutalize voters in the
 last resort. NB many subverted elections are preceded by lengthy
terror campaigns (e.g. Nicaragua, El Salvador, Yugoslavia, etc).
Has also utilised subliminal manipulation.

It should go without saying that the following entries are
simplified; only the major "payoff" year is listed, where applicable.
Most attempted overthrows were preceded by lengthy preparations,
vast right wing conspiracies, indeed. NB that this list remains under
 construction; new data will be added in the next installment.

[Date - place (head of targeted state/candidate in subverted
election; political affiliation): outcome (means)]

The * indicates that I'm not clever enough to have found the
absent data yet. Apologies.

"Neutralist" refers to a given regime's desire to avoid taking sides
with either power bloc in the cold war. It should be readily apparent
that such is an unforgivable sin against the foreign policy establishment
in the United States.

"Nationalist" refers to a given regime's desire to nationalize
foreign-owned means of production within its national boundaries.
It should be readily apparent that such is an unforgivable sin against
the foreign policy establishment in the United States.

We should keep in mind that the goals of the imperialist in each of
these instances are multiple: acquisition of access to local "markets"
of all varieties; imposition of neoliberal policy; destruction of any potential
alternative to the techno-fascist ruling order; provision of incentive for a
 sprawling parasitical and parastatal medical-intelligence-
military-industrial complex (MIMIC); production of official
"villains" for propaganda purposes; intimidation of non-combatants
(as in the year 1945), and continuing political hegemony of the
transnational elite based in DC.

4. Chronological list of states held in the manacles of debt-leverage imperialism:

N.B. these states are held in the thralldom of "odious debt" imposed
upon them by (typically) quasi-fascistic regimes who 1) often enough
were empowered via United States state terrorism and 2) accepted
the terms of United States dominated Bretton Woods restructuring programs.

Many countries found themselves in dire monetary and fiscal straits in the early
1980s - after the Nixon shocks, the various oil embargoes, and the Volcker
interest rate hikes. At this time of the debt crisis, the IMF and World Bank
became "lenders of last resort" for regimes unable to meet balance of
payments obligations to imperialist-controlled banks - but such lending
comes with a cost: dismantle any and all policies that don't adhere to
 the mystical mantras of neoliberalism (ie such policies as protectionism,
capital regulation, state industry, wage control, labor and environmental
regulation, resistance to currency devaluation, autochthonous/non-export
production, etc had to go); such is the nature of the structural adjustment
program (SAP).

Note further that these policies were the Reaganites' answer to
the "Crisis of Democracy" (as defined by the geniuses in the
Trilateral Commission) that was occurring on a global scale and
to the relative loss of US geopolitical power in the late 1970s.
In order to disrupt the G-77, UNCTAD, and other international
movements modeled on the success of OPEC, the debt crisis and
its neoliberal response were engineered for the sake of ushering in
a new world order of managed friggin' chaos. It is good to recall that
a number of countries that have refused SAP have been attacked
(e.g., Serbia) and/or destabilized (e.g., Belarus). It is also prudent
to realize that many an "ethnic," "religious," or otherwise vaguely
described "civil" war has been caused directly by SAP (e.g., Somalia, Yugoslavia).

Moreover note that the meaning of "debt crisis" is that
subjugated nations that were unable to meet balance of
payments obligations to imperialist-controlled banks threatened
the survival of such banks, and thus this privately held debt was
transferred to public institutions, thereby socializing risk while
insuring the sanctity of corporate profit. (I.e., "crisis" does not
 here refer to those horrors being inflicted on subjugated peoples.)

6. Chronological list of US murder toll: [under construction]

The murder toll has been achieved by either direct violence
(e.g. the firebombing and nuking of Japan or the firebombing of Dresden)
or indirect/proxy "low intensity conflict" (e.g. Rwanda in the 90s or
Nicaragua in the 80s). (I have not here accounted for the deaths attributable to SAP.)

We should also take note that the United States bears more
than superficial responsibility for the Nazi Holocaust: e.g., the
turning away of Jewish, Romani, and other refugees; funding the
concentration camp system; underwriting the Third Reich's military;
delay in opening a western front; policies of appeasement before the war;
siding with the fascists during the Spanish Civil War; turning down Stalin's
offer to attack Germany jointly in 1938; providing theoretical inspiration for
 lebensraum, final solutions, anti-communism, anti-Semitism, etc;
rebuilding Germany after the war with the fascist infrastructure still
intact; saving war criminals; general ideological support; and so forth.

7. Alphabetical list of rightwing dictators, reactionary movements,
and other reprehensible figures empowered/materially supported by
the US: [under construction] It seems as though the number one
criterion for getting a job as the head of a client state is a willingness
to butcher leftists. Indeed, the use of unsavory rightists by the United
States began neither with the anti-Castro Cuban eemigree community,
nor with the Afghan mujaheddin alumni, oh Nelly no!

[the dates provided are sloppily done, I concede. At times,
they are just the general duration of the given regime (e.g., Selassie).
Most others are the duration of US support while the regime
lasted (e.g., Hitler, Saddam Hussein, etc.)]

Scanning the official public acknowledgment list here, we clearly
see that the US had extreme paranoia about China, Mexico,
Nicaragua, and Panama: Open Doors, "uncooperative" neighbors,
and two potential canal zones. Also, check the rationale in the
official Defense Dept. record for each of the above conflict dates.
Many, many times, we have the "to protect US interests [or "nationals"]
during a crisis" as the proposed justification. Caveat lector.

11. Noteworthy Covert Operations conducted by the United States.
We should keep in mind that the dates given are the confessed dates

run after they were officially terminated, nor does it reckon with the
same practices under different names - or no names at all. It should
go without saying that this isn't a complete listing.

13. "Low intensity wars" conducted by the United States and its
proxies ("medium intensity warfare" = direct and usually acknowledged
involvement of US military apparatus; "high intensity warfare" =
Dr. Strangelove stuff: "nuclear combat toe-to-toe with the Russkies," &c).

The primary goal of low intensity conflict is to use proxies,
intelligence, and special forces to destabilize a region and its official
government. The purpose of destabilization is to achieve 1) access to
resources amidst the chaos, 2) delegitimation of an "enemy"
political/economic system, 3) influence over specific local groups,
and 4) depopulation of regions inhabited by "untermenschen."

All leftists should learn about low intensity warfare; it is by far
and away >one of the most disgusting and useful tools in the
imperialist repertoire. Don't let the words "low intensity" trick you:
rivers are dammed with corpses and the fields are sown with the
blood of the targeted nation.

1960s: Congo; Vietnam; Laos; Cambodia; Thailand; Burma

14. Proxy Wars fought by the United States, which typically involves
 the use of clients, dupes, mercenaries, unofficial "volunteers,"
and official, though disavowable, special forces. [under construction]

contra Soviet Union: stock-in-trade Cold War superpower jousting

contra France: after the Soviet Union ended all activities in Africa,
the US began its bid to force French proxies out of North Africa.
