The illusion of US 'benevolence' and the reality of US foreign 'aid'

It is said: Corrupt foreign "leaders" to accept "loans to develop infrastructure --- electric generating plants, highways, ports, airports, or industry parks. In essence, most of the money never leaves the United States; it is simply transferred from banking offices in Washington to engineering offices.": Despite the fact that the money is returned almost immediately to corporations that are members of the corporatocracy (the creditor), the recipient country is required to pay it all back, principal plus interest. If an EHM is completely successful, the loans are so large that the debtor is forced to default on its payments after a few years. When this happens, then like the Mafia the US demands its pound of flesh. This often includes one or more of the following: control over United Nations votes, the installation of military bases, or access to precious resources such as oil…Of course, the debtor still owes the US the money and another country is added to its global empire…

IMO: Sweden next, maybe ?

The key to the U.S. corporate Empire's success is its invisibility. "Most of its own citizens are not aware of its existence; however, those exploited by it are, and many of them suffer extreme poverty. On average twenty-four thousand people die of hunger and hunger-related diseases every day. More than half the planet's population lives on less than two dollars a day..."

IMO: Every country should beware of these tricks which USA has been carrying out since World War 2 (which they used to end Mr. Roosevelt's depression, bankrupt the UK and kill thousands of their own workers). This really does not help the average US citizen. The place is its own worst enemy.
