William Blum: Anti - Empire Report 06 April 2012 @ Killing Hope
The Holy Triumvirate — The United States, NATO, and the European
Union — or an approved segment thereof, can usually get what they want.
They wanted Saddam Hussein out, and soon he was swinging from a rope.
They wanted the Taliban ousted from power, and, using overwhelming
force, that was achieved rather quickly. They wanted Moammar Gaddafi's
rule to come to an end, and before very long he suffered a horrible
death. Jean-Bertrand Aristide was democratically elected, but this
black man who didn't know his place was sent into distant exile by the
United States and France in 2004. Iraq and Libya were the two most
modern, educated and secular states in the Middle East; now all four of
these countries could qualify as failed states.
