“The US Doesn’t Meddle In Foreign Affairs”



We all heard President Biden give the hypothetical…what would it be like if the United States meddled in foreign affairs? If you’re even remotely familiar with US history, you should realize that’s an absurd question to ask. The United States is guilty of the most foreign interventions of any nation, by far. We’ve interfered in places like Chile, Nicaragua, Cuba, Bolivia, and dozens of other countries, especially those in the global south. In this episode, we’ll debunk the myth that the US doesn’t meddle in foreign affairs, and explain that our interventions are not in the name of “freedom and democracy.”
