Crimes of the US imperialists


The article published on the occasion of the 21st anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attack accurately points out that the United States of America “is the state which has repeatedly violated every rule and norm of state-to-state relations that has been agreed upon since the Second World War.”

The following is a list of the wars, armed interventions and coups organised by the USA since the end of the Second World War.  The list may not be exhaustive.
