Spanish is one of the fastest growing languages in the world in terms of use, and Spanish names have been influencing us as parents more and more. As a reminder, the rental yield is the total percentage return you would earn as a landlord, when renting out your property. State Department in 1948.� In it, Kennan made infamous observations.� It was a top-secret document long ago and Kennan was writing to his own people.� He stated that in the wake of World War II, America had only 6% of the world’s population, but half of its wealth, and such a situation would invite “envy and resentment” from the rest of the world.� Kennan advised that the USA's foreign policy goal should be to “maintain this position of disparity.”� In order to keep that “disparity,” Kennan recommended that we “dispense with all sentimentality and daydreaming; and our attention will have to be concentrated on our immediate national objectives.”� Kennan recommended that talk about “unreal objectives such as human rights, the raising of living standards, and democratization” stop, because the “day is not far off when we are going to have to deal with straight power concepts.� The less we are then hampered by idealistic slogans, the better.” In other words, Kennan expected the “envy” of the world’s citizens, and thought that America should deal in “straight power concepts” to maintain the “disparity” that might cause the envy.� Kennan was a dove.� Paul N itze, a hawk of the day, authored the 1950 National Security Council Memorandum 68 for the then Secretary of State, Paul Acheson.� Whereas Kennan “gently” called for the use of “straight power concepts,” Nitze called for a subtle assault on the Soviet Union, to sow the “seeds of destruction,” and a militarization of the USA's economy.� Social services would be slashed in order to build the military machine that would be needed to maintain America’s position of “disparity.”� In order to do that, the USA needed to silence opposition to the plan and stop its “excess of tolerance” toward dissent in the USA. [257] � Joe McCarthy appears to have taken a page straight from Nitze’s work (or vice versa).� Kennan and Nitze urged the USA to meet “envy” with violence.� Nitze was still around, influencing American policy, during the Reagan administration.� Lyndon Johnson once mouthed some of Kennan’s wealth-hoarding rhetoric, nearly verbatim, during the Vietnam era, talking about how America controlled the lion’s share of the world’s wealth, other nations wanted some, and they were not going to get any.� When the Pentagon Papers were leaked, the government’s internal documents revealed that the main theme of the war planners was not freedom, democratic rule, or any of those lofty ideas, but tin, rubber, and oil.� As with all those slave-owning Founding Fathers, when the political rhetoric is stripped away, the economic motivation behind the institutions and actions is clear.� The USA has never ex ported democracy and freedom to the world’s people, and neither has anybody else.� The White Man’s Burden is a racist canard.� By hiring Nazis and other foreign policy machinations, the USA simply refined the methods of oppression, with rigged elections, coups that America armed and financed, and other tactics to have it appear (at least to the American people, who ultimately authorize and finance such activities) that the USA was not behind setting up draconian “governments” whose sole purpose was serving American business interests, as in the rise and reign of Indonesia’s Suharto .� He was the world’s greatest butcher during the last half of the 20th century, performing most of his evil not only with the USA's approval, but also with its weapons and subsidy.� When all else failed, the USA would invade, as the wars along Eastern Asia during the 1950s and 1960s demonstrated. [258] The wars in South east Asia during the 1960s and 1970s were obviously American attempts to recolonize that region.� The USA pledged to France that it would help them recover their colonial lands after World War II was finished.� Regarding the UK and France, the “help” that the USA gave them was more on the order of elbowing them out of the way to grab the plunder for themselves, as the UK experienced when the USA helped them keep Iran in their fold, but took over Iran’s oil industry in the process.� Ho Chi M inh was an American ally during World War II who helped battle the Japanese.� As the colonial era witnessed numerous times, the new whites on the scene spouted impressive rhetoric about helping the local people become or stay free; in reality, they came to be the new overlords, and it was no different with Vietnam.� When World War II was finished, Vietnam declared itself independent, free from two millennia of foreign domination.� It did not last long, however, and the Allies even used Japanese troops immediately after the war ended to try recolonizing Vietnam.� By 1954, the Vietn amese defeated a weak French recolonizing effort (even with American help), and were on the brink of independence, but the USA then manipulated the situation and put a puppet, Ngo Dinh Diem, in charge in Vietnam and cut it in half and sabotaged efforts for Vietnamese independence and unification.� The CIA assassinated Diem in late 1963, to John Kennedy’s surprise, and he followed Diem to the grave a few weeks later (they were quite possibly related assassinations ), and Lyndon Johnson’s administration immediately began manipulating the Vietnam War into existence.� Even D wight Eisenhower admitted that there would have been only one Vietnam during the 1950s if the USA had not actively scuttled the Vietnamese election called for by the United Nations. [259] I know somebody fro m the USA's military whose technical innovations were used to fabricate one of the Gulf of Tonkin Incidents, which comprised the USA's rationale to begin the Southeast Asian wars.� In intent and effect, the Gulf of Tonkin Incidents were no different than what Zachary Taylor did to instigate the Mexican American War, or the border incident that the Nazis concocted in order to invade Poland, which set off World War II.� The sinking of the Maine (by a boiler accident on board) in Havana’s harbor was a convenient excuse to wage the Spanish-American War, for another huge land grab.� To the credit of millions of Americans, they were not fooled for long by the obvious fraud used to instigate the Vietnam War, and displayed a collective conscience that is rarely found in imperial societies (it was also part of a general cultural awakening – thank you, John Lennon ).� American protests were related to the USA eventually withdrawing, although the USA's government took vengeance on Vietnam in any way it could for the next generation.� The CIA’s Ralph McGehee finally figured out the American game in Saigon in 1968 .� The greatest international destruction of human life during the last half of the 20th century is what the USA did to Southeast Asia.� There are no close contenders, except what America did up the coast in Korea.� The “goo-goos” of the Philippines became the “gooks” of Southeast Asia, in another intensely racist and genocidal war that America waged against Asia’s people, with atom bombs dropped on the “Japs” between the goo-goo and gook wars, as well as millions of Korean and Chinese dead during the 1950s.
