Remember Our Dictators?

A long list of scum have sold-out their people for Yankee military dollars. They purchase weapons systems and unnecessary military supplies, leaving their national economies indebted for generations. The worst dictators take a key cut of businesses and loot the national treasury; they torture and execute anyone resisting their regime.

The Philippines, beloved by America under Ferdinand Marcos and martial law, after 30+ years has yet to recover. The summary execution of Benigno "Ninoy" Aquino, Jr. in 1983 (within seconds of return to Manila while under Philippine military official escort) remains a brutal reminder of power politics. Hundreds of millions of dollars have now been recovered. Among our dictator friends, even when horrible mutilations & murders are well-documented, perpetrators are granted noble retirement in exile, ignored by US corporate media.
