US imperialism also seeks to destroy any alternative system that could compete with its capitalism. The Soviet Union was attacked by the west from the start of the revolution and remained under attack until US undermining eventually caused it to collapse. Cuba has been under relentless threat. Socialist Yugoslavia was bombed into submission, including bombing all production sites etc. Chile was destroyed, Venezuela is relentlessly undermined.
The Scandinavian countries have had their social democratic welfare models undermined by EU membership, itself a US straightjacket. Even today, when the populations of Sweden and Finland oppose Nato membership, the politicians have ignored this and entered into military partnership with the US.
No country has been allowed to go its own way, if that way did not involve being crushed by US imperialism, whether financially or culturally or in terms of cuisine, where populations are increasingly becoming obese through following the pizza, coca-cola, burger, intensively farmed food way of the US.
The US has military bases all round the world. Any vassal country that resists will be crushed immediately as politicians take their rewards and wealth for acquiessing.

Do you have any evidence that Finns oppose NATO membership?
I’d wager they are certainly more appreciate of NATO considering the Russian situation at the moment.

War is a Racket Quotes (showing 1-12 of 12)
“I spent 33 years and four months in active military service and during that period I spent most of my time as a high class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street. I helped purify Nicaragua for the International Banking House of Brown Brothers in 1902-1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for the American sugar interests in 1916. I helped make Honduras right for the American fruit companies in 1903. In China in 1927 I helped see to it that Standard Oil went on its way unmolested. Looking back on it, I might have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents.”
