    One man's dictator is another nations "Good Guy".
    That "fighting dictators, to spread democracy" story, is kinda thin!
    Although this article is from 1995, the old dictators(post 1950) in most of these nations are replaced by new ones

    They are democratic America's undemocratic allies. They may rise to power through bloody ClA-backed coups and rule by terror and torture. Their troops may receive training or advice from the CIA and other US agencies. US military aid and weapons sales often strengthen their armies and guarantee their hold on power. Unwavering "anti-communism" and a willingness to provide unhampered access for American business interests to exploit their countries' natural resources and cheap labor are the excuses for their repression, and the primary reason the US government supports them. They may be linked internationalIy to extreme right-wing groups such as the World Anti-Communist League, and some have had strong Nazi affiliations and have offered sanctuary to WWll Nazi war criminals.
    They usually grow rich, while their countries' economies deteriorate and the majority of their people live in poverty. US tax dollars and US-backed loans have made billionaires of some, while others are international drug dealers who also collect CIA paychecks. Rarely are they called to account for their crimes. And rarely still, is the US government held responsible for supporting and protecting some of the worst human rights violators in the world.

    Excellent piece! It is unfortunate, that so many among us are still politically illiterate, no matter how many times the same old lies are told, there is always a receptive audience. The USA has never been against dictators, only those dictators, that refuse to be servants of the USA. Any dictator or regime, that serves the USA, no matter how many people, they murder, torture, rape or how much public funds they steal, the USA will never try to remove them from power or bring them to justice.
    Furthermore, how many times have Americans been lied into wars and yet there are still many, who are always eager to believe the lies for the next war and the next one and the next one. What will it take and at what point, will people wake up?

    Demoncracy is the best method to abduct and corrupt the rest of the world, I always laugh when I hear these politicians here say they have liberated a people.
