All pointed out through William Blum’s book, “Killing Hope: US Military and CIA Interventions Since World War II”. Click here to get a free digital copy of this book. Though, be warned, this is essentially only half of the entire book. So I’ll try my hardest to try & get a hold of a complete digital copy. If you can’t wait, then here’s a link to where you can buy the complete version on Amazon.

Many more interventions were made that are not accounted for in the book though.

  1. 51. Bulgaria 1990/Albania 1991: Teaching communists what democracy is all about

    What is this suppose to mean?!?! How exactly did the US intervene….I don’t quite remember that…. I remember that prior to 1989 Bulgaria was ethnicly cleansed – around half a million people were forced to leave in a matter of 3-4 days. And prior to that all of them were forced to change their names (from turkish/muslim names to bulgarian/christian names). That includes the traditional bulgarian muslim community (ethnic bulgarian muslims called Pomaks).

    • I am very aware of the Israeli occupation of Palestinian land, and very much in support of the Palestinians. In fact, if you look to the right of my page, I show my support towards the PFLP (Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine).

      This page here is to recognize William Blum’s great book “Killing Hope: US Military and CIA Interventions Since World War II”.

      So please don’t get me wrong comrade. If you go through my site, you’ll find plenty of articles of where I show my solidarity with the Palestinians against the Zionist State and their brutal campaign of apartheid and genocide.

      • Thanks for the quick reply! I am enjoying your site – just discovered it yesterday and have shared it twice on my facebook page since yesterday. Thank you for your work!
