America Has Undertaken Regime Change In Many Countries Before In 1957, the U. S. and British governments planned regime change in Syria … because it was drifting too close to the Soviet Union.
20 years ago, influential U. S. government officials decided to effect regime change throughout the Middle East and North Africa. The countries targeted were ‘old Soviet regimes’.
The U. S. has, of course, already carried out regime change in Guatemala, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Chile, Haiti and many other countries. The U. S. was also instrumental in the recent regime change inUkraine.
Soviet leader Gorbachev allowed the Soviet Union broken up only after the U. S. and NATO promisedthey would not encircle Russia militarily. Ever since 1991, they have broken their promise and encircledRussia.
