And finally, the US currently is openly pursuing regime change in Syria, with US policymakers and US State Department, openly declaring US intentions to overthrow the government of Syria to replace it with one more to their liking. This is a repeat of what the US has openly done in both Iraq and Libya.
The many other examples cited in The Nation's editorial (Mexico in 1846, then post-World War II intervention in Iran (1953), Guatemala (1954), Congo (1960), Dominican Republic (1961), South Vietnam (1963), Brazil (1964), Chile (1973), Panama (1989), Kuwait, Iraq (2003), Honduras (2009), Syria (2012) and Ukraine (2014)) are also up for little debate.
When the US Embassy fails to address these concerns and dismisses them as "ridiculous" and "reckless," they are dismissing the legitimate concerns of millions of Thai people. But as the US has done in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Libya and Ukraine, disenfranchising the majority while cultivating a dangerous and violent minority appears to be the "American way."
The US is currently engaged directly or indirectly in hostilities in at least the following countries: Syria, Yemen, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya, Somalia, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Uganda, Mali and Ukraine.
Of these conflicts, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yemen and Ukraine are direct results of US-backed "regime change."
To make sure readers understood clearly what the DIA meant by "supporting powers," the report would state:
The West, Gulf countries, and Turkey support the opposition; while Russia, China, and Iran support the regime.
Not only is the US openly pursuing regime change around the world including in Syria, it has admitted itself to seeking the creation of a "Salafist [Islamic] principality [State]" in eastern Syria, precisely where the Islamic State now resides.
By Mike Whitney August 26, 2016 "Information Clearing House" - "Counterpunch" - The main architect of Washington’s plan to rule the world has abandoned the scheme and called for the forging of ties with Russia and China. While Zbigniew Brzezinski’s article in The American Interest titled “Towards a Global Realignment” has largely been ignored by the media, it shows that powerful members of the policymaking establishment no longer believe that Washington will prevail in its quest to extent US hegemony across the Middle East and Asia. Brzezinski, who was the main proponent of this idea and who drew up the blueprint for imperial expansion in his 1997 book The Grand Chessboard: American Primacy and Its Geostrategic Imperatives, has done an about-face and called for a dramatic revising of the strategy. Here’s an excerpt from the article in the AI: “As its era of global dominance ends, the United States needs to take the lead in realigning the global power architecture. Five basic verities regarding the emerging redistribution of global political power and the violent political awakening in the Middle East are signaling the coming of a new global realignment. The first of these verities is that the United States is still the world’s politically, economically, and militarily most powerful entity but, given complex geopolitical shifts in regional balances, it is no longer the globally imperial power.” (Toward a Global Realignment, Zbigniew Brzezinski, The American Interest)

As a vet living in the Philippines I'm noticing the us and un are really pissing of the new president who the people here love.
And the western msm is full out attacking him with lies and propaganda and spin.
This is a guy with over 90 percent favorability rating. When has any us president had that?
I think it's the USA that needs a regime change away from the globalist controlled flunky politicians.
The buying of a politician (carrot) such as the deposed Thaksin Shinawatra and then his puppet sister who in her short time as P.M. managed to acquire a rather hefty fortune in a few bank accounts is not working like it used to. The stick approach has turned into proxies supported by arms, training, and funding for regime change. Hopefully countries are on to the game and have a way of defending against and defeating whoever wants to play that way in the host country's back yard.
the US uses the carrot and stick method .
