Noam Chomsky - Haiti, Honduras - History of US Rule in Latin America

Some people criticize Chomsky for not talking about 9/11 being an inside job. All I know is he taught me all I need to know about how power works and from there I figured out the rest. I don't mind if 9/11 isn't that important for him. I do mind that 5 1/2 million people died in the 2nd Congo War and I didn't know it was going on. I feel angry that I was only interested in my own fun to keep an eye on the largest amount of deaths since the second world war. And I consider myself informed and have been an information junky for decades now.

Did you know that Haiti was the crown jewel of the Caribbean before the US inflicted its revenge on the country for rebelling against slavery?
