Regime Change USA
From Hawaii to Iraq
100+ years of overthrows
The book is called “Overthrow” and it charts the 100+ year history of US-forced regime change.
“Overthrow: America’s Century of Regime Change from Hawaii to Iraq” by Stephen Kinzer.
Why do we do it?
It’s not hard to figure out why.
There’s big money in it.
Stephen Kinzer received criticism from Noam Chomsky in his book “Manufacturing Consent” as a journalistic “errand boy” for the Regan administration.
This book may be an attempt to get on the right side of history and rehabilitate his reputation.
Note: This interview was recorded in 2006. His comments on Puerto Rico (how well we’ve taken care of it) are obviously 100% wrong.
