If you look today at how the American empire behaves toward other countries, nothing much has changed since January 1st, 1959.
Heavy doses of hate plus arrogance are the fuel which moves the engine of the capitalist government of the United States. If you are a country that has a government that tries to improve the daily lives of its people, you will find the United States government in opposition. They will use terrorism, torture and other unspeakable acts to put a stop to an improvement in people's lives. People are to be exploited, not helped.
We have the cases of Venezuela, Bolivia, Nicaragua, Ecuador and others. They have governments that try to help its citizens. Who foments and directs subversion and destabilization programs against those countries governments? The United States of America.
