The language is spoken in the Spanish provinces of Vizcaya and Guipuzcoa, in northern Navarre, in part of Alava, and in the traditional French provinces of Labourd, Basse-Navarre, and Soule that now form part of the department of Pyrenees-Atlantique. In 1935, Butler also wrote War is a Racket, and its major point was that in all future wars, the first thing that should be conscripted is capital, and he campaigned on that theme for the rest of his life.� The Great Depression of the 1930s was a global phenomenon, and it brought Hitler and others to power.� Life for the rem nants of Native American tribes did not improve much after their conquest, dispossession, and genocide was completed during the late 19th century.� During the 20th century, the USA continued genocidal policies against Native Americans, including forced sterilization, forcible removal of children from their parents, to be raised in the white culture, more active undermining of tribal governance, and still more theft of their lands.� Canada also did the same things.� It was not until America’s Civil Rights era that Native Americans began making a comeback.  It is doubtful that any power in world history ever militarily “helped” others primarily from benevolent intent.� Violence is not a humanitarian undertaking, as it always violates somebody.� Regarding “benevolent” wars, history has shown that it was always a ruling class machination that the common people were blind to, as they cheered the warfare, to “help” other people.� Those common people also served as cannon fodder for the ruling class’s ambition.� Much later, after it did not matter anymore, the truth came out.� Covering up ulterior motivation is primarily why “national security” secrecy exists, to cover-up crimes in high places and foster and maintain deceptions, not to attend to “ national security .”� World War II was humanity’s most devastating war…so far, with up to 100 million deaths.  � In the USA, it is known as America’s greatest war, often called the “ good war .”� World War II was obviously born of imperialism and the fact that the imperialist latecomers, Germany and Japan in particular, needed easy access to cheap foreign resources and labor in order to become imperial powers, but the other Great Powers already owned the world.� Hitler took a page from America’s handbook and saw Eastern Europe in the same way that America’s Founding Fathers saw the American continent: possessed by inferior races whose dispossession and extermination (if necessary) would clear the way for “living space” for the chosen race’s settlement.� Hitler’s “crime” was targeting white people as inferior races (although far from unprecedented in Europe).� Japan developed a similar Manifest Destiny ideology toward China.� While Germany and Japan were making imperial moves, the USA's government and industrial leaders held Germany in warm regard, and even when Japan intentionally sank an American ship as it attacked China, Franklin Roosevelt actively covered for them and minimized the incident in the American media.� When Germany and Japan began stepping on imperial toes, the situation became strained, although the USA declared war on Germany after Germany declared war on them, after the Pearl Harbor attack, which was no great surprise to the American military .� When it came time to put down the imperial upstarts, communists received a quick makeover, and one of history’s bloodiest tyrants, Joseph Stalin, became Uncle Joe in the USA, at least while there were Nazis to defeat.� The Pacific Theater was largely an American race war against Japan, to wipe out their nascent empire .� As World War II ended, America quickly hired all the useful Nazis, even those who performed human experiments in the death camps .� The CIA epitomized American foreign policy, as it was headed by Wall Street lawyers and executives, and hired the Nazi intelligence network virtually intact, to wage covert war against Uncle Joe.� There were even plans to nuke the Soviet Union out of existence, with Nazi help.� The reign of Joe McCarthy in those post-war years was no anomaly, but neatly aligned with the USA's neocolonialism and fabricating the communist threat, which was really the threat that the colonized world might free itself from the West’s shackles.� Few will bal dly state what their true ambition is, especially when it is driven by greed and a lust for power.� However, declassified documents from the war and early post-war years clearly spelled out the American government's intentions.� American planners saw the colonized world in virtually the same way that Europe had, but their internal documents phrased things more clinically.� Before World War II had even ended, the USA's planners saw nearly the entire globe as its “Grand Area,” and the USA's destroyed imperial rivals were going to follow the “great workshops” example of Japan and Germany during the war and become producers of goods that the USA would find useful.� Traditional colonial lands were to be a source of cheap labor, food, and natural resources, and a captive market for manufactures, in mercantile fashion.� Colonial domains, Africa in particular, were to be exploited to help rebuild Europe and Japan.  � The USA's plans were a blueprint for a truly global empire.� Only the Soviet Union stood in its way (and later, China), and that was what the Cold War was all about, which the USA instigated and escalated at every opportunity.� One of Am erica’s leading diplomats, George Kennan, who was a Soviet Union expert and considered the USA's leading foreign policy dove, authored Policy Planning Study 23 for the U.
