Washington's regime change gets a makeover

Back in the day, the US government openly backed dictators who were pro US and pro free market. It was part of the Cold War era where the US trained, financed and supported military dictators and governments that committed heinous crimes against their populations, such as in Chile, Argentina, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Guatemala and Brazil. However, the bloody trail left behind by Washington's henchmen resulted in the US government shifting gears in how it supported or implemented regime change. Today the new method is known as Democracy Promotion.
