How To Do Regine Change in 12 Easy Steps ... American Style

Worth a full read.  

IMO, what's been going on in our world in the last few decades is a comeback, slowly but surely, if we the people remain ignorant -  of the white colonial powers that many of us thought we had vanquished for good.   Just check out the list of "white" powers thirsting to enslave the AmeriIndians, the blacks, the indigenous people of  Venezuela .... aren't they all (with the exception of Italy, for now anyway) fully in support of the attempted coup??  The other non-white countries' governments supporting the attempted coup, nations like Brazil, Colombia, etc'. are elites in those governments who wannabe "whites"  and who don't use mirrors to look at themselves.

The 12-Step Method of Regime Change

On 15 September 1970, US President Richard Nixon and National Security Advisor Henry Kissinger authorised the US government to do everything possible to undermine the incoming government of the socialist president of Chile, Salvador Allende. Nixon and Kissinger, according to the notes kept by CIA Director Richard Helms, wanted to ‘make the economy scream’ in Chile; they were ‘not concerned [about the] risks involved’. War was acceptable to them as long as Allende’s government was removed from power. The CIA started Project FUBELT, with $10 million as a first instalment to begin the covert destabilisation of the country.

 US business firms, such as the telecommunication giant ITT, the soft drink maker Pepsi Cola and copper monopolies such as Anaconda and Kennecott, put pressure on the US government once Allende nationalised the copper sector on 11 July 1971. Chileans celebrated this day as the Day of National Dignity (Dia de la Dignidad Nacional). The CIA began to make contact with sections of the military seen to be against Allende. Three years later, on 11 September 1973, these military men moved against Allende, who died in the regime change operation. The US ‘created the conditions’ as US National Security Advisor Henry Kissinger put it, to which US President Richard Nixon answered, ‘that is the way it is going to be played’. Such is the mood of international gangsterism.......
