      America’s Backyard reveals the US role in the darkest periods of Latin American history, including Pinochet’s coup in Chile, the Contra War in Nicaragua and the death squads in El Salvador. It explains why US drug policy has caused widespread environmental damage yet failed to reduce the supply of cocaine.   “The Open Veins of Latin America: Five Centuries of the Pillage of a Continent” was written at the dawn of the s, a decade when much of Latin America was governed by repressive right-wing Author: Larry Rohter.

        The U.S. has had relations with Iran ever since the last quarter of the nineteenth century. American missionaries have been in Iran even longer than that. But the United States’ real engagement with Iran dates only from WWII. The relationship has generally been close, but it has been punctuated first. It was a reference to Eduardo Galeano’s book Open Veins of Latin America: Five Centuries of the Pillage of a Continent, a lyrical accounting of the violent plunder that had turned a rich.

      Documentation of Official U.S. Knowledge of Drug Trafficking and the Contras The National Security Archive obtained the hand-written notebooks of Oliver North, the National Security Council aide who helped run the contra war and other Reagan administration covert operations, through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed in   Détente (a French word meaning release from tension) is the name given to a period of improved relations between the United States and the Soviet Union that began tentatively in and took.

The U.S. decision to allow the sale of advanced fighter jets to Latin America was driven by jobs and export earnings rather than security imperatives. On August 1,the Clinton administration announced that the U.S. would end a successful year moratorium on the sale of advanced military equipment to Latin American states.

The Good Neighbor policy also allowed for reduced tariffs for countries on an individual basis. This was applied to Latin America, encouraging them to import US finished goods and export agricultural products.

Latin America and the Cold War. Latin America became a priority again in the s due to the Cold War. Small arms and gun violence present the most dramatic threat to public safety in Latin America and the Caribbean.

The lieutenant trafficker was also a Contra, and the CIA knew that there was an arms-for-drugs shuttle and did nothing to stop it. The legacy of the US-funded war on drugs in Latin America is profound even as its impact has been temporary and geographically limited. Since the s, the US has spent more than a trillion.
