Money for Murder

Published: December 22, 2011, Author: JayTaber

Reminiscent of the Reagan era, Central America is again the target for US-funded state violence against socialists and indigenous peoples. This time around, however, the Obama Administration is promoting the privatization of military death squads once embraced by his ideological mentor Ronald Reagan.

As US State Department Secretary Hillary Clinton prepares to finance privatized vigilantes to murder opponents of globalization, transnational corporations — reaping the harvest of murder for money — carry on a long tradition in what once were called the banana republics. After two centuries of genocide by other names, the current US initiative looks more and more like the arrogant belligerence made famous by US President Theodore Roosevelt.

Apparently, the mold of US militarism has been altered little in that timeframe.
