“I disagree with that. As somebody who has helped plan coup d’états, not here, but, you know, other places, it takes a lot of work” – John Bolton on CNN (12.07.2022).
Yesterday, not a shocker, but an open revelation, which the world has known for years. That the United States of America imperialism has resulted in installing puppets overseas. This is well known chapter in the legacy of the USA and the Washington Doctrine. They have used their military power, intelligence and means to an end. In such a manner, that they have forced out elected leaders and installed their own heads of state. The latest ones was the failed coup d’etat in Venezuela and the short-term presidency, which was in Bolivia. Therefore, this isn’t anything new, but a reality we live in.
Bolton himself worked not only as an Ambassador to the United Nations and as a Former National Security Advisor (NSA). No, before that since the Presidency of Ronald Reagan. This man has been a war-hawk and a man willing to enforce U.S. interest upon others. That’s been his end-game and it hasn’t really been a secret. That’s why Trump appointing him… is just a long line of Republican President using his “services”.
Bolton himself was the “18th Assistant Secretary of State for International Organization Affairs” in the years of 1989 to 1993. That was during the Presidency of George Bush. While his President George W. Bush appointed him too “3rd Under Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security Affairs”. A role he had between 2001 – 2005. Why I am stating these things?
Well, in those years… there was some American interventions in other countries. Which with the revelation can be put on him and his associates in the State Department of the U.S. Government. Surely together with the Central Intelligence Authority (CIA) and other government entities, which could easily be involved in the matter. Therefore, Bolton is just saying what we all knew.
In 1989 the CIA had a counterinsurgency in the Philippines. They had a failed December coup d’etat in that year. Between 1989-1990 the U.S intervened with armed forces in Panama to overthrow government of President Noriega. In 1991, the CIA-backed military coup ousts President Jean-Bertrand Aristide in Haiti. That is only mentioning a few things which transpired while he had one term in office under President Bush (senior).
So, with the knowledge of these actions. Could the paperwork and the confidential documents of the State Department verify his involvement in any of these? If so, why is he still a free man? Since, his a war-criminal, which was allowed to overthrow sovereign and independent nations own government. That should be sanctioned and punitive action should used against him. This is only fair that a man like Bolton get to answer for the crimes he has committed. If that is in Panama, Haiti or anywhere else for that matter. Not mentioned earlier… if his responsible for troops sent to Liberia or ushering in a war in Iraq. He could be behind the first Gulf-war. Who knows, right?
But, Bolton is proud of intervening and being behind coups. He had years in office and should be held accountable for that. No one should walk away scot-free. When they have taken down heads of state and installed puppets. That’s just shows the “World Police” and their Imperial ambitions. As U.S. interests has been more valued, than the sovereign interests of the respective nations or their citizens.
Because, who is Bolton or anyone in the State Department right to decide who runs Panama or Liberia? Not their jurisdiction or within their borders, right? That’s for the people of Panama or Liberia. Heck, why did the U.S. try a coup in Philippines, just mere years after the People Power movement overthrow the Marcos the dictatorship? Well, you can figure that one out, right? U.S. has a hankering for U.S. sponsored dictators like Mobutu. So, they could always have another like that elsewhere. As long as it’s their dictator and that man plays to their “rules”.
Alas, Bolton is just that sort of man. People should provide evidence and seen him on trial in the Hague. When other warlords and militia’s with crimes against humanity is there. So, should the likes of Bolton. Bosco “the Terminator” isn’t the only man who deserves to get the book of international laws thrown at him. No, the likes of Bolton deserves that too.
This is a privilege of him speaking like this on CNN and face no consequences. He should answer and there should be filed cases against him. Bolton deserves that and so those anyone else who conspired together with him. That’s only fair and is just. The world needs that and American’s shouldn’t get off the hook either. Peace.
