1987 — 1988 — United States help Iraq in its war against Iran not only with weapons, but the bombing. In addition, the United States and Britain provide Iraq of weapons of mass destruction, including a deadly gas that has been poisoned 6,000 civilians in the Kurdish village of Halabja.

Standing on the roads warships saluted heroes artillery volleys. " S. Kara-Murza writes about the content of articles in U.S. newspapers devoted downed Iranian airplane: "You read these articles, and head spin. The plane was shot down out of good intentions, and the passengers "did not die in vain," because Iran might change his mind a little bit … "Instead of an apology Bush said:" I will never apologize for the United States.

1989 — The Americans shot down two Libyan aircraft.

1989 — Romania. The CIA is involved in the overthrow and murder of Ceausescu.

But by the end of the 80's, it became clear that he did not go the way of traitors to socialism, like Gorbachev. Moreover, to interfere more and more high-profile revelations of opportunism and betrayal of communism, unheard of Bucharest. And in Langley decided: Ceausescu to remove (of course, then it could not be done without the consent of Moscow …).

Through the agents in the Western media were running negative information about the dictator and an interview with Romanian dissidents who had fled abroad. The leitmotif of these publications was: Ceausescu torturing people to plunder public money, does not develop the economy. Information in the West was a great success. In parallel, the "public relations" the most likely successor Ceausescu, who was elected to the role of Ion Iliescu. This nomination eventually arranged for both Washington and Moscow. And after already "clean" from socialism Hungary Romanian opposition quietly supplied weapons. And finally, at the same time in several world TV channels was the story about the murders secret agents Romanian secret services "Securitate" civilians in the city of Timisoara, the "capital" of Romanian Hungarians. Tsereushniki now recognized that this was a brilliant assembly. All the victims actually died a natural death, and the corpses were specially brought to the location site of the local morgue, the benefit was not hard to bribe the nurses. 15 years ago, the execution of former Secretary General of the Romanian Communist Party and his wife Elena was presented as an expression of the will of the people, who overthrew the hated communist regime. It has now become clear that it was another CIA operation, covered by a fig leaf of "struggle against totalitarianism."

1989 — Philippines. Government to fight against the coup provided air support.

1989 — American troops suppress the unrest in the Virgin Islands.

1990 — US-backed military assistance to the Government of Guatemala "in the fight against communism."

Destroyed more than 440 villages, tens of thousands of people have fled to Mexico, more than a million refugees in the country. In the rapid spread of poverty (1990 — 75% of the population), tens of thousands are dying of hunger, open "farm" for growing children, who were then dismantled by authorities for the rich American and Israeli clients. American coffee plantations on people live and work in a concentration camp.
