There used to be a time when Americans were hiding their political and/or military goals. Nowadays, the "main exporter of freedom and democracy" doesn't feel obliged to do that anymore - they bluntly say "do as I want or I flatten your place". If it corresponds to the UN charta (which they founded and still control, at least financially and through their economic interest group called "Security Council") or not - who gives a shit. Other people, please do respect our wishes (orders), if not, see above.
***too many countries to mention where the US interfered***
Latest example is the realtime soap "Me and the Rocket Man", screenplay by Donald Trump, directed by MIC. Gracefully Mr. Trump has accepted an invitation to ease the tense situation caused by useless military exercises around North Korea (let's show them who we are, huh), in fact directed at China, but Mr. Kim is easier to provoke and may be less dangerous than Mr. Li, so let's stick to the recipe to strangle the small ones.
The US did agree to meet Little Rocket Man, but posed so many conditions on him that he has only two choices: 1. He accepts, but due to the fact that he let himself be provoked by the US to some really tough remarks, he will lose face, and in his culture, losing face is about the same as committing suicide. Or 2. He refuses, and in that case, the US can attack and tell the world: We offered him a hand, but he refused it...
Clever they are, admitted.
I guess the world is aware of that. But as I said, the US does not NEED to cover up anymore. They understand themselves being No. 1 anyway, if only by weapons accounts, and by closing the eyes when seeing what happens in THEIR country...it must be hard when an empire in the coming already sees that others want to take their place, and these others do it way more clever - by economic means like the Chinese, or the Russians, which are more blunt as well, but at least, their leaders (at least the one on top) control their country a lot better than the US does, and seem to be able to lift the standard of life of its people a bit, while in the US it goes down.
That last fact will sooner or later bring the people of the US to revolt - except when their brains are already so washed that they will scream Hooray ! when WWIII starts, orchestrated by their ghostly regime, in order to rally the people behind them to "fight yet another (self-created) enemy".
Mission accomplished, yes. sir.
And the arms industry will clap their hands...
