  1. The overthrow of Zeleya never would have happened without the support of the CIA. The uS needs to get out of and staty out of the foreign and internal affairs of other countries. All the inteventions do is create ill will for the US What

    China is doing in terms of negotiating and investing in Africa should be a model for US foreign policy.
