The recipe for a Land of Opportunity
1. Pour lots of US dollars into tiny, reactionary organizations that exist within a chosen country. (If they don't exist, stir some up.) Make sure they have a well-funded press and many photo opportunities with western journalists. (Toss in some massacre/rape/baby eating stories.)
2. Block all aid to political forces already in power because they are communists. (No documentation necessary. Nor does it matter if the left, communist, coalition government in existence was democratically elected.)
3. Place an embargo on the chosen country cutting off all export/import of necessary items including food and medicine. (Pressure Cooker effect)
4. Make sure plenty of guns, butter and cash get through to the reactionaries. Simmer. Add US troops to taste.
5. The pot will begin to bubble. The side with the most guns, butter and PR wins. (Your tax dollars at work.)
6. Pause to wave the flag.
7. After the dust settles and the blood dries, you have a perfect base for the business community to commit humanitarian deeds so the workers are not starving out on the street and to lay the foundation for future prosperity - for itself.
Note: Recipe can be doubled, tripled, quadrupled as needed.
