Thank God They're on Our Side

David Schmitz

This work reads more like a reference book than a narrative. It has at its heart a very detailed polemic against the preferred foreign policy of the United States government throughout the 20th century. Beginning with the aggression of the (Teddy) Roosevelt Presidency, through to present day David Schmitz looks behind the argument that the US would support any foreign leader as long as they opposed Communism - and if that meant giving support to a bloodthirsty tyrant then so be it.

The book offers very detailed examinations of the regimes themselves - from the Somozas in Nicaragua, Pinochet in Chile right up to the thirty year courtship with the Mobuto regime in Zaire - as well as the US administrations that, despite their political colours, played the same foreign policy tune.
