    I learned about American imperialism by living abroad and talking to people. Here are some books on the subject.

    Here's an online book written by an American general.

    Here's some more stuff on Amerian imperialism. The first three links give a good summary. I posted the long list below of articles and videos if anyone wants to see the details.

    All you need is the following summary to make your case:
    If you want to learn more about U.S. foreign policy look to primary sources and left-wing scholarship:
    In neocon Robert Kagan's words:
    Arthur Schlesinger Jr., President Kennedy's adviser on Latin America:
    In 1976, Henry Kissinger, the leading statesman, advised that this system should be based on the recognition that "the United States has global interests and responsibilities," while our allies have "regional interests":

    Yes, there is definitely a market for slanted gibberish.

    Please elaborate. What do you mean? This is nothing. I can go into full detail with US documents in my own thread.

    Why not post some real info instead of a ridiculous list of pure propaganda sites; lol@ 'chomsky.org' as a source among other worthless spin sites.

    Let's give USA the twentieth century with their Marconi system and Nuclear Bomb race winning Moon Landing winning Wall St. having Silicone Valley, Hollywood mass media having century.

    Now what...

    China?
    With their quantum physics communication, are we all going to be speaking Chinese by the end of the century?

    I personally like USA's way than CPR's sweatshop Communism solution for a billion people.

    First of all most of what's considered to be proof in that video is based on the idea that the media tell us the truth. Check out this info.
    http://www.politicalforum.com/index...germany-in-1933.401955/page-3#post-1066548138

    There's nothing in that video that constitutes real proof and it doesn't make the anomalies that prove the hoax go away.


    The rocks are not proof.

    http://www.geschichteinchronologie.com/atmosphaerenfahrt/28_moon-stones-from-Earth-ENGL.html
    (excerpt)
    -----------------------------------------------------
    "Moonstones" have no possibility to be compared on moon itself, because there is no possibility of a neutral control on the "moon". So, it's permitted for anybody to claim this or that stone would come from the "moon". Also when certain "moon probes" are said having landed on the moon also this is not controllable. And it's not possible to control if these "moon probes" have brought stones or dust from the "moon" to the Earth or not either. At the end the super powers "USA" and "SU" claim together to the public that "moonstones" would be "very similar" to "Earth stones". This "similarity" brings up some new questions

    (1:05:40 time mark)


    The reflectors aren't proof. See the above video at the 1:17:00 time mark.


    Pictures are fakable so they aren't proof.

    The proof that the LRO photos are photoshopped



    The fact that there were thousands of people involved is not proof of anything.

    (excerpts)
    ---------------------------------------------
    Q: Why do prominent astronomers like Sir Bernard Lovell and Patrick Moore support the Moon landings if they were faked?

    A: Scientists and astronomers around the globe know full well that the Moon missions were faked, but rely on NASA to gain access to the vital data beamed back to Earth from the Hubble space telescope. They cannot slag off NASA otherwise NASA would deprive them of this essential information, which they so much require.
    ---------------------------------------------
    Q: What about the vast number of people involved in Apollo, wouldn’t someone have spoken out.

    A: Pan’s claim there were half a million people involved in the Apollo program, but that includes all the humble engineers working on machine parts in many companies around the globe. So if someone is making a part in some engineering factory in Seattle, and his boss tells him it’s for the Apollo spacecraft, is that engineer proof the landings took place? No of course it is not proof, and even if that engineer knew they never made it to the Moon, he would still brag to his friends that he made a part that went to the Moon just to make him feel proud in some way or other. Parts for the Apollo program were made at many different factories around the globe. For example the laser reflector supposedly left on the Moon was manufactured in France. NASA collected the unit from the French company, and that was the last they saw of it. It’s probably stashed away in some archive at Langley, but one things for certain it’s not on the Moon. Are those French engineers proof they landed on the Moon? No of course not, as very few, (probably less than 200 people), were actually involved in bringing the whole lot together, so as to minimize what was actually taking place. No need for any of them to speak out because (A) They are 100% patriotic to the USA, and would say nothing that would go against America, even if it were true. (B) They do not need millions of dollars to safeguard their future, as they have already received substantial amounts from NASA just to “keep mum”. Read comments from people who worked on the Apollo program in the APOLLO FEEDBACK section.

    MoonFaker: Russia, Jodrell Bank & Frequencies. PART 1



    What was really happening in the cold war might have been very different from what they were telling us.

    http://libcom.org/history/articles/cold-war-1940-1989?quicktabs_1=0
    (excerpt)
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    On the domestic front, the Cold War helped the Soviet Union entrench its military-bureaucratic ruling class in power, and it gave the US a way to compel its population to subsidise high-tech industry. It isn't easy to sell all that to the domestic populations. The technique used was the old stand-by-fear of a great enemy.

    ---------------------------------------------------
    The "SU" legalizes the "American" "moon landings" and gets wheat for it
    All in all the "Soviet Union" legalizes the "moon landings" of the "USA" by the declaration that the "moonstones" are the same. At the same time "SU" suffers bad harvests and is depends on wheat deliveries from the West. The "Soviet" regime has no other choice than to do the favour to the "USA" to recognize the "moonstones" and with it the "moon landings" (Wisnewski, p.212).
    ----------------------------------------------------

    http://www.apfn.org/apfn/moon.htm
    (excerpt)
    ----------------------------------------------------
    The Soviets, with their own competing moon program and an intense economic and political and military rivalry with the USA, could be expected to have cried foul if the USA tried to fake a Moon landing. Theorist Ralph Rene responds that shortly after the alleged Moon landings, the USA silently started shipping hundreds of thousands of tons of grain as humanitarian aid to the allegedly starving USSR. He views this as evidence of a cover-up, the grain being the price of silence. (The Soviet Union in fact had its own Moon program).

    THREAD LOCKED - Rule 11

    The OP fails to set and define a basis for respecfful debate, and instead creates a laundry list of unrelated subjects.
