Anyone who wants to know more about what the US governments have been doing all along should read: "A People's history of the United States". Do not assume that the US has not secretly interfered into other countries governments, elections, coups, etc., and for a very very long time. Read also a book called: "Confessions of an Economic Hitman," by John Perkins It is pretty edifying. People can't just make their minds up solely with what school "history" teaches, nor with the newspapers (all owned by big corporations and where journalists are not free to "tell it as it is". (For example, in a magazine, if you write an article - say where you criticize "milk" for instance - the editor will pull your article, because an advertiser in the milk industry won't like it and will drop its support of the magazine. Some might remember the big hoopla caused by Oprah when she said she would not eat another burger: she got the Meat Industry to slap her with a law suit.
This happens also with political criticisms if it doesn't agree with the views of the owner of the paper). You must read, read a lot, all sides, and then make up your mind. Americans are very poorly educated in high schools, and college Degrees offer a good specialized education, but not a 'complete' education.
Lots of Americans are nice, but lots are so gullible that they act like sheep and follow the leaders, right or wrong. They affirm lots of opinions without knowing anything about them, just they heard it said and liked the sound of it.
