This is what 50 years of US foreign policy looks like when the chickens come home to roost.
We prop up a dictator who is "friendly" to the USA (ie, does whatever the military or huge corporations want) and in exchange, we look the other way at their horrifying treatment of the people of said country. Or better yet, when they torture people in our name in the so-called "war on terror".
Now they are rising up (and rightly so) and this dictator could easily be replaced by some religious nut or other kind of fanatic.
It happened in Iran. And similar things have happened in Central and South America (just not the religious nut part). It's long past the time for the US to stop acting like an Empire.
When will we ever learn?
Also, guess where the Chamber of Commerce stands? Yea, that's what I figured.

Very interesting commentary.

Nice work. I came across your blog while “blog surfing” using the Next Blog button on the blue Nav Bar located at the top of my site. I frequently just travel around looking for other blogs which exist on the Internet, and the various, creative ways in which people express themselves. Thanks for sharing.
