The “United fruit company”, now known as “Chiquita brands international” used its connection to John Foster Dulles (secretary of state under Eisenhower), who was at one time on the companies board of directors to overthrow the Guatemalan government and put a dictator in charge in 1954. All under the ruse of a “communist threat”. This was done using the CIA
The exercise was a perfect example of the US government and corporations doing nasty things together for money. They even spread propaganda about a “communist threat” to the American public. this was over land and bananas. Imagine what they would do or have done for oil.
