This is a list of Wikipedia:United States interventions since 1945. Due to the secretive nature of certain covert interventions, it is rational to err on the side of the preponderance of evidence.

The Wikipedia:International Monetary Fund and the Wikipedia:World Bank have also been called agents of US foreign intervention, although the US does not set the policies of these institutions unilaterally. [1]. It is more accurate to say that both are agents serving to maintain the hegemony of moneyed interests, as Yanis Varoufakis' examination of European Union policy reveals - Varoufakis with Chomsky talking about Greek Crisis

As well as these military interventions the United States also pursued and gained economic controls over many developing states. It was aided in this by the International Monetary Fund and World Bank.

As well as these military interventions the United States also pursued and gained economic controls over many developing states. Some claim that the International Monetary Fund and World Bank assisted American foreign policy in this area. (If correct, this would also require implicit co-operation of other countries, as the US has only 18% of the IMF's voting rights. [81])

Furthermore, the United States has provided continued military support for repressive regimes, including those of Saudi Arabia, Colombia, Pakistan, Myanmar, Turkey, and Egypt.

This is a list of United States interventions, including many that have, in some circles, been considered examples of imperialism, though the evidence that there are circles that have considered the interventions as examples of imperialism is not offered. Imperialism is a pejorative word that is usually used to criticize these actions. The list is an incomplete list. The "some circles" have not been identifieed, so the criteria for inclusion in the list is not revealed. The list also does not include any historical context other than date. The strength of allegations is not referenced. Alternatives to any of the actions are not discussed. Kd4ttc 5th time

NotesEdit

  1. Template:Note Template:Cite journal The day before the coup, the CIA sent a message to Washington saying: 'President Goulart will be removed, and quickly . . . oil is a problem, the communists have the control of ports and railways but not of the roads . . . the democrats will be dependent on the port of Vitoria, which they can control, to get oil'. It was thus that 'Operation Brother Sam' was thrown into action to provide logistical support. A navy task force was sent to the Brazilian coast, consisting of one aircraft carrier, six destroyers, one helicopter carrier and four oil tankers. Beside the oil, a hundred tons of arms and ammunition were also to be provided; See also: Wikipedia:João Goulart#The Military Overthrow of Goulart
