In this extremely enlightening interview, John Perkins (ex-economic hitman) explains how the oil race created dictatorial regimes in Central and South America, Africa and in the Middle East; reveals the plots behind the overthrowing of Mohammad Mosaddegh (Iran) in the 50’s; the assassinations of:
-Jacob Árbenz Guzmán (Guatemala),
-Jaime Roldós Aguilera (Ecuador),
-Salvador Allende (Chile),
-Omar Torrijos (Panama),
-Manoel Noriega (Panama);
(…) the failure – and its consequences – in getting rid of Hugo Chavez (Venezuela), and the truth behind the Saddam Hussein event.
He also explains very clearly how the US debt situation in the 70’s Cold War took their oil companies to Colombia, consequentely triggering the birth of the guerrilas and the drug cartels cocaine empire which later on would flood the USA and the world with coke.
