Survey: Americans see US in decline
I will still make millions even if we fall!
For the first time in 40 years, a majority of Americans say the US plays a less important and powerful role in the world than it did a decade ago. 
But it was not always this way. At one time two brothers ruled America's overt and covert policies. They launched a secret world war to bring down legitimate governments around the world to aid massive corporations and their business "interests." 
For money and corporations
The brothers were not the Kennedys, who may have done something to stand in the way. The men were the now forgotten Dulles brothers, one Secretary of State, the other head of the CIA. We ask:
  • Why is our world this way?
  • Why does the USA act like the world police?
  • Why does the "operational" CIA, the USA, and the business-influenced Pentagon keep making war?
Historical author Stephen Kinzer answers explaining why and revealing the origins of the military-industrial complex.
