According to Joe Biden Latin America is "America's front yard," not its "backyard." History shows that it would be better for the region to escape Washington's yard altogether.
Thank you for this. It actually serves as a reminder that the US never supports democracy or sovereignty in either its front yard, back yard or on the other side of the moon. It's all about what's good for the US economically, strategically or even as a way to control its own internal image (why else support Israel and promote their slow annexation of the West Bank while grossly violating human rights laws, then joining in by moving the US embassy to Jerusalem?). Remember, Reagan got a pass on Iran-Contra. We sell arms to Saudi Arabia, who uses them on Yemeni children. We are all that has ever mattered.
This is incredible content. Thank you for this wonderful historical analysis.
