Now that we can all find Ukraine on a map, today’s post is an activity: on a blank map, can you identify the country being targeted by the U.S. government for regime change?
Let’s start with some easy ones as a warm up. These are countries where the U.S. is already engaged in proxy war, and if you’re following the news you already knew that.
Map A (answers below)
Map B (answers below)
Map C (answers below)
Under cover of USAID or NGOs, the U.S. is also currently stirring up trouble in these countries:
Map D (answers below)
Map E (answers below)
Map F (answers below)
Map G (answers below)
Map H (answers below)
Map I (answers below)
Map J (answers below)
Map K (answers below)
Finally, identify a few of the many countries on the watch list i.e. meddling either underway covertly or has been signaled but is not yet underway.
Map L (answers below)
Map M (answers below)
Map N (answers below)
I could go on — and on — but you get the idea.
I. Thailand (especially good video overview on U.S. meddling in the region)
K. Taiwan (an island that is part of China)
If you click the country name it links to an article or video on U.S. meddling in that country. Note that some of the corporate media sources or government-aligned NGOs deny U.S. meddling because of course they do.
Bottom line: why does the U.S. think its vital interests lie all over the planet, and how much does all this meddling cost? It’s nearly impossible to quantify because so much of the cost is hidden in support for foundations, NGOs, or just plain CIA “dark” i.e. invisible activities.
In terms of human suffering, violence, and bad will generated, that, too, is difficult to quantify.
As anecdotal evidence, I’ll leave you with a quote from Caitlin Johnstone’s recent post on the AUKUS submarine deal:
In reality, Australia is not arming itself against China to protect itself from China.
