Inside this Book – If you think you have a good grasp of history and US foreign policy, read this book to see how you may not have been told/taught the entire story. This book chronicles US intervention, always in the name of ‘peace, democracy, and human rights’ in countries all over the globe. Ostensibly the US was fighting communism (now terrorism); the reality is that it was in support of corporatism. Meticulously researched (although I thought there were some assertions that should have had an end note), this isn’t the history you learned in school.
Inside this book –Killing Hope PDF Book by William Blum -The least bloody way for the U.S. to have fought the Cold War would have been to support all oppressed people “yearning to be free” in their fight for independence/democracy, instead of invading them. This book is a long ledger of just the U.S. crimes committed against other countries since WWII. After spending time in America, Ho Chi Minh wanted to imitate the U.S. and declared all Vietnamese equal in 1945 – he even wrote the state department and Truman eight friendship letters but we totally spurned his advances – at what enormous cost? Ever wonder how Chiang Kai Shek got safely to Formosa/Taiwan from mainland China? Before he moved there, he massacred 28,000 people on the island who were not sufficiently impressed by him. The US decided to call Formosa China, if as mainland China was no longer China. “The United States evidently conspired to assassinate Chou (Zhou enlai/Chou En-lai) on several occasions.” However, the U.S. has a longer record of taking out nationalists than communists. During the entire Cold War, no policy planner ever found a valid reason why the Soviets, unprovoked, would want to either bomb the U.S. or attack western Europe. It was that ludicrous.
