1945 – 1951 American Betrayal and Subversion in China From Rogue State by William Blum:

At the close of World War II, the US intervened in a civil war, taking the side of Chiang Kai-shek’s Nationalists against Mao Tse-tung’s Communists, even though the latter had been a much closer ally of the United States in the war. To compound the irony, the US used defeated Japanese soldiers to fight for its side.

After their defeat in 1949, many Nationalist soldiers took refuge in northern Burma, where the CIA regrouped them, brought in other recruits from elsewhere in Asia, and provided a large supply of heavy arms and planes. During the early 1950s, this army proceeded to carry out a number of incursions into China, involving at times thousands of troops, accompanied by CIA advisers (some of whom were killed), and supplied by air drops from American planes.

1947 American Subversion of Democracy in France

1947 – 1948 American Subversion of Democracy in Italy From Killing Hope by William Blum:

Using every trick in the book, the U.S. interfered in the elections to prevent the Communist Party from coming to power legally and fairly. This perversion of democracy was done in the name of “saving democracy” in Italy. The Communists lost. For the next few decades, the CIA, along with American corporations, continued to intervene in Italian elections, pouring in hundreds of millions of dollars and much psychological warfare to block the specter that was haunting Europe.

1946 – 1958 American Nuclear Poisoning of the Homeland of the Marshall Islands People From Rogue State by William Blum:

Driven by perceived Cold War exigencies, the United States conducted dozens of ICBM, nuclear bomb and other nuclear tests on this trust territory in the Pacific, after forcing the residents of certain islands, notably Bikini Atoll, to relocate to other, uninhabited islands.

In 1968, the former residents of Bikini were told by the Johnson administration that their island had been cleaned and was safe for habitation. Many went back, only to be told later that they had been subjected to massive doses of radiation and would have to leave again.

In 1983, the US Interior Department declared that the islanders could return to their homes immediately — provided they ate no home-grown food until the late 21st century. They have never returned.

1947 – 1949 American Tyranny and Subversion in Greece From Rogue State by William Blum: The United States intervened in a civil war, taking the side of the neo-fascists against the Greek left, who had fought the Nazis courageously. The neo-fascists won and instituted a highly brutal regime, for which the CIA created a suitably repressive internal security agency [called KYP]. For the next 15 years, Greece was looked upon much as a piece of real estate to be developed according to Washington’s needs.

... KYP [carried] out all the endearing practices of secret police everywhere, including systematic torture. It was most active during the military junta,

1967-74, a period of routine horrific torture.

1945 – 1953 American Subversion in the Philippines From Rogue State by William Blum: The US military fought against the leftist Huk forces even while the Huks were still fighting against the Japanese invaders in the world war.

After the war, the US organized Philippine armed forces to continue the fight against the Huks, finally defeating them and their reform movement. The CIA interfered grossly in elections, installing a series of puppets as president, culminating in the long dictatorship of Ferdinand Marcos, for whom torture was “la specialite de la maison” (see Elections chapter of Rogue State).

By infiltrating emigre guerrillas into the country, the US and Britain tried to overthrow the communist government and install a new one that would have been pro-Western, albeit composed largely of monarchists and (former) collaborators with Italian fascists and Nazis. Hundreds of the emigres lost their lives or were imprisoned.

1948 – 1956 American Subversion in Eastern Europe From Rogue State by William Blum: Allen Dulles, Director of the CIA, in a remarkable chess game, instigated a high Polish security official, Jozef Swiatlo, to use a controversial American, Noel Field, to spread paranoia amongst the security establishments of Eastern Europe, leading to countless purge trials, hundreds of thousands of imprisonments and at least hundreds of deaths.

1953 American/British Overthrow of Democracy in Iran From Rogue State by William Blum:

Prime Minister Mossadegh was overthrown in a joint US-British operation. Mossadegh had been elected to his position by a large majority of parliament, but he had made the fateful mistake of spearheading the movement to nationalize a British-owned oil company, the sole oil company operating in Iran.

The coup restored the Shah to absolute power, initiating a period of 25 years of repression and torture, while the oil industry was restored to foreign ownership, with the US and Britain each getting 40 percent.

1957 – 1958 American Subversion in Indonesia

1959 American Support of Dictatorship in Haiti From Rogue State by William Blum:

The US military mission, in Haiti to train the troops of noted dictator Francois Duvalier, used its air, sea and ground power to smash an attempt to overthrow Duvalier by a small group of Haitians, aided by some Cubans and other Latin Americans.

1950s – 1960s American Intrigue & Subversion in Western Europe From Rogue State by William Blum:

For two decades, the CIA used dozens of American foundations, charitable trusts and the like, including a few of its own creation, as conduits for payments to all manner of organizations in Western Europe.

The beneficiaries of this largesse were political parties, magazines, news agencies, journalists’ and other unions, labor organizations, student and youth groups, lawyers’ associations and other enterprises, all ostensibly independent, but nonetheless serving Washington’s Cold-War, anti-communist, anti-socialist agenda — an agenda which also included a militarized and united Western Europe, allied to (and dominated by) the United States, and support for the Common Market and NATO, all part of the bulwark against the supposed Soviet threat.

1959 – Present American Subversion and State Terrorism of the Cuban People From Killing Hope by William Blum:

Fidel Castro came to power at the beginning of 1959. A U.S. National Security Council meeting of March 10, 1959 included on its agenda the feasibility of bringing “another government to power in Cuba.” There followed 40 years of terrorist attacks, bombings, full-scale military invasion, sanctions, embargoes, isolation, assassinations...Cuba had carried out The Unforgivable Revolution, a very serious threat of setting a “good example” in Latin America.

The saddest part of this is that the world will never know what kind of society Cuba could have produced if left alone, if not constantly under the gun and the threat of invasion, if allowed to relax its control at home. The idealism, the vision, the talent were all there. But we’ll never know. And that of course was the idea.
