There was similar obfuscation with the Obama-Hillary abetted 2009 Honduran coup d'état, a tragedy that persists to today and that has contributed to the flood of asylum seekers here.

Yeah, we have supported for and supported against openly and covertly any number of coups and uncoups over the years.

Truman's claiming that France was a victim in its claim over Vietnam and cheerleading our support against an oppressed country trying to establish their democracy


and Ike promoting the South to start a hostile war after a unification treaty was signed was a takeover of the newly unified country.


And we started way earlier in central and south America


What was our first support of a bad guy takeover of a country?

A loving murmur.

1/2 of a wide-ranging medium-sized bird.

1/4 of a refrain from “I Am the Walrus" and “Mrs. Robinson".
