COI #136: Legacy of US Intervention in Haiti Paved Way to Moise’s Assassination

COI_Logo

On COI #136, Patrick MacFarlane – host of Liberty Weekly – returns to the show to discuss the assassination of Haiti's President Jovenel Moise. Over a century ago, in response to another presidential hit, the US invaded and occupied Haiti for 19 years. After withdrawing, Washington maintained its dominance over the small Caribbean nation through ‘soft power’ NGOs and election-meddling. The Clintons were particularly interested in reworking Haiti into a new Taiwan. However, their humanitarian intervention only fostered corruption and helped to kick off a deadly cholera epidemic. As...

7/10/20 Bas Spliet on the American War that Destroyed Libya

Bas Spliet is back to discuss the disaster that was America and the UN's involvement in Libya after 2011's Arab Spring. Spliet reminds us that Libya was once one of the wealthiest countries in north Africa, ruled by a secular dictator with relative liberty and prosperity. After the Obama administration decided to begin a bombing campaign there in support of a regime change, however, the country quickly disintegrated into one of the most chaotic and violent places in the world. Today there are open air slave markets and 30% of the population has fled the country. As usual, this...

8/16/19 Alan Kuperman on America’s Support for Al-Qaeda in Libya

Trump Tells the Truth: Sanctions Cause People to Suffer

This week President Trump admitted what the Washington policy establishment of both parties would rather be kept quiet. Asked why he intervened to block a new round of sanctions on North Korea, he told the media that he believes the people of North Korea have suffered enough. "They are suffering greatly in North Korea…And I just didn't think additional sanctions at this time were necessary,” he said. The foreign policy establishment in Washington, whether they are neocons, “humanitarian interventionists,” so-called “realists,” or even progressives have long embraced sanctions as a way to...

What Did Washington Achieve in its Six Year War on Syria?

Now that the defeat of ISIS in Syria appears imminent, with the Syrian army clearing out some of the last ISIS strongholds in the east, Washington’s interventionists are searching for new excuses to maintain the illegal US military presence in the country. Their original rationale for intervention has long been exposed as another lie. Remember that President Obama initially involved the US military in Iraq and Syria to “prevent genocide” of the Yazidis and promised the operation would not drift into US “boots on the ground.” That was three years ago and the US military became steadily...
