U.S. World Domination

Do you realize we have nearly 800 military bases spread around the world?
by Charlie Leck

Helen Philpot, of the Margaret and Helen Blog, tangled this week with the philosophy of Dick Cheney, former Vice President. In trying to explain Cheney she began by explaining U.S. military expansionism and pointed out that we have over 700 military bases around the world that control over 2 million hectares of real estate.

Then she dares ask why in heaven’s name so many Arabs around the world hate us so.

“Never mind that we have been occupying their homelands for more than 60 years. Never mind that today we have dozens of “enduring” military bases just in Iraq and dozens more in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Oman, Qatar… Is that really so terrible? We’re just there looking to send back a little oil to help run our cars and our factories back home.”
Global Research, an extraordinary Canadian think-tank has carefully examined this huge shadow of the U.S. and explains how it has spread its coverage out over the entire world. The extensiveness of this world domination is explained thoroughly in a 2007 article by Professor Jules Dufour.

“The US has established its control over 191 governments which are members of the United Nations. The conquest, occupation and/or otherwise supervision of these various regions of the World is supported by an integrated network of military bases and installations which covers the entire Planet (Continents, Oceans and Outer Space). All this pertains to the workings of an extensive Empire, the exact dimensions of which are not always easy to ascertain.”
A friend recently put me on to two very extraordinary books that I have written about before on this blog – Overthrow by Stephen Kinzer and The People’s History of the United States by Howard Zinn.

To understand the U.S. policy about world domination, you really must read these books. I’m not being a raving idiot here. When you take a careful, accurate look at U.S. history you are able to see how many governments we have overthrown and how we developed such global control in order to protect our own self-interests everywhere. Some people will regard this as good and positive; others of us will be horrified at what our nation has done while we were playing golf, or skiing or taking the kids to the beach.
