USA devised its own methods of controlling other countries. US installed puppet governments in the countries they were interested in.  US looked for a pro-US local   politician, who says he wants to transform the country. Then using NGOs, ethnic and religious minorities groups, opposition political parties and the English language media in the country, a low intensity internal conflict is created and the US nominee installed in power. USA did this covertly in the past,    now it is done openly, said observers.

Without exception, governments brought in through American backed conspiracies have failed, said analysts.  The failure is due to the poor quality of the persons selected.  They were chosen because of their usefulness to USA. They followed US instructions, which led to deep dissatisfaction and chaos in the country, ending in the collapse of the puppet government.

USA also meddled in the elections of other countries. Prof. Levin of Carnegie Mellon University, an expert on American and Russian interventions in foreign elections said the U.S. has intervened 81 times in general elections worldwide between 1946 and 2000.  Russians have interfered in 36 elections during the same time period.  These interventions are often directed from the highest levels of US government, such as the White House/senior cabinet secretaries. Local US embassy staff and ambassadors carry out the task.  The CIA attends to campaign funding and “dirty tricks.”

 Russia Today reported in 2021 that US internal documents showed how the United States meddled in the electoral process in Venezuela. US intelligence fronts used social media to promote Venezuela’s right-wing opposition, and assist their election to parliament.

USA took action to ensure that developing countries were kept politically unstable. USA encouraged fissiparous separatist and groups which will keep the developing countries weak and unstable. When countries were unstable, it was easier for USA to manipulate them.

The media was paid to discredit popular governments.  Concocted statements were put out, repetitiously and in great volume.  ‘Democracy’ and ‘human rights’ promotion groups were set up. ‘Scandals’ were created. Colors were given to newly constructed ‘opposition’ movements, and deadly weapons used at the ‘protest’ sites, said analysts.  

 US recruited anthropologists and tried to use them for its dirty work.  The methods used by anthropologists were found to be of use for intelligence and defense. American Anthropological Association had to develop an ethics code for this in 1971. An independent ad hoc network of anthropologists seeking to promote ethical anthropology was also set up, the Network of Concerned Anthropologists. (date of origin not available).

In 2006, US government set up Commission on engagement of anthropology with the US Security and Intelligence communities” CEAUSSIC to discuss the matter. In 2008 American Anthropological Association told CEAUSSIC that AAA considered the use of anthropology in military spying unacceptable.

The most powerful US agency used to destablise foreign governments was the Central Intelligence Agency, the well known CIA”. USA said Latin America was its sphere of influence and CIA meddled continuously in Latin America. CIA was also working away in the rest of the world. John Perkins in his book ‘The Confessions of an Economic Hit man’ details how operations against smaller nations were carried out with support of CIA.

CIA was popularly seen as a bungling agency, responsible for the many failures of US policy abroad. But it also has many successes to its credit. CIA is responsible for planning, carrying out and providing cover-ups for USA assassinations abroad.

CIA is legally empowered to act overseas.   This made CIA   powerful abroad, noted TIME.  CIA had a top secret kill list, said Edward Snowden. CIA overseas operations were carried out from stations hidden inside American missions, consulates and embassies. There is special surveillance equipment which allows US embassies to watch others.  CIA also had black sites where prisoners were tortured, concluded Snowden.

CIA had front organizations. International Signal and Control,”   a US defense contractor firm, was a CIA front for gunrunning,      said Economist. CIA and BND, Germany’s Federal   Intelligence Service had for decades used a Swiss encryption company Crypto AG, for spying.

Crypto supplied devices for encoded communications to some 120 countries. Unknown to those governments, Crypto was secretly acquired in 1970 by the CIA and BND. They rigged Crypto’s equipment to break the codes of other governments and read their messages. The two agencies were thus able to gather information during major crises such as the hostage crisis at the US embassy in Tehran in 1979. Economist confirmed that from 1970 to 2000 Crypto AG was wholly owned by the CIA and was a front company of the CIA.

National Endowment for Democracy (NED), Albert Einstein Institute, Freedom House and the Open Society Institute of George Soros   are engaged in doing USA’s dirty work abroad, said critics. The most active of these agencies is National Endowment for Democracy. NED was known globally as the second CIA”. NED exported various kinds of anti-government ideas, incited color revolutions, and plunged the Arab world into war, social unrest and economic recession.

NED is funded by White House and the US Congress, and takes orders from the US government.  It has manipulated and directed NGOs around the world to conduct subversion, infiltration and sabotage using its generous funding. NED is the US government’s white glove” that serves US strategic interests, announced China.

NED provided financial support to persons and groups loyal to USA. Also to those who wish to break up a country.NED has long provided funding for the training of politically active” Sudanese young people. NED gave funds to Tibetan Youth Association and World Uyghur Congress in 2020. 

NED infiltrates target countries, cultivates local anti-government forces and stokes social tensions. NED colludes with local political groups. NED pushed useful issues, such as feminism, freedom of the press, and human rights activities, makes grants to civil rights” organizations and funds academic seminars and training.

NED has been at it for a long time. in 1989 NED provided financial support for   Solidarity to help them overthrow the Polish government, heralding drastic changes in Eastern Europe.

NED was there in Central and South America. NED orchestrated a violent coup In Haiti. Between 2016 and 2019, NED provided at least 4.4 million US dollars to Nicaraguan opposition groups and media organizations.  Organizations funded by NED played key roles in Nicaragua’s coup attempt in 2018. These organizations called on the opposition to attack the government and assassinate the President.

In Venezuela NED has run its activities using the USAID office in the US Embassy as well as the offices of the organizations to which it gave funds.  NED has engaged in all kinds of activities in Venezuela, said critics. They have built close ties with opposition parties. They have provided several funding packages to the largest opposition union in Venezuela and pushed it to stage anti-Chavez protests and demonstrations.

 In March 2019, Venezuelan Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza said that many organizations conducted destabilizing activities across the country, funded by NED. They have been attempting to overthrow the Venezuelan government for the past 20 years.

NED was right behind the Arab Spring which took place in Egypt, Yemen, Jordan, Algeria, Syria, and Libya. NED played an important role in organizing and manipulating anti-government demonstrations in Egypt. NED funded and worked closely with NGOs such as the Women Journalists Without Chains” In Yemen. That NGO organized and led student rallies against the Saleh government. In Algeria, a number of organizations involved in the Arab Spring protests received funding from NED. Algerian League for the Defense of Human Rights received US funding in 2003, 2005, 2006 and 2010.

In October 2000, NED financed and instigated the Velvet Revolution in Serbia which overthrew the Milosevic government. NED gave two Serbian opposition groups 10 million and 31 million US dollars respectively.  Washington Post wrote in its post-mortem analysis of Serbia’s Velvet Revolution that US-funded advisers played a key role behind the scenes in nearly every aspect of the anti-Serbia movement. They tracked the polls, trained thousands of opposition activists and helped organize the crucial parallel vote tabulation.

 Rose Revolution broke out in Georgia, in 2003 and President Eduard Shevardnadze was forced to step down. NED planned and participated in the entire process from selecting” opposition leaders, training the opposition to providing huge funds.

Bolivia enjoyed political stability and the fastest growth rate in South America in the 14 years under Morales. Its poverty rate continued to drop, people’s livelihoods improved markedly. From 2013 to 2018 NED and USAID provided 70 million US dollars to the opposition in Bolivia.  

NED created an anti-Morales network spanning universities, think tanks and civil organizations, it even roped in indigenous Bolivians to stand against Morales. A number of leading figures of the opposition received financial support or had close interactions with the United States.  NED initiated street movements.  In 2019, NED started a ‘revolution’ forcing President Evo Morales to resign and go into exile.  The Morales government won the general election, but was forced to step down.

The methods used by NED in Bolivia resemble those practiced by Aragalaya in Sri Lanka. In Bolivia on the night of 9 November 2019 violent riots escalated throughout Bolivia. Violent anti-Morales rioters overran the streets in the capital city of La Paz  Rioters began to storm government offices, flooding the stations of Bolivia TV and Radio Patria Nueva, accusing them of serving Morales .Regional governors had their homes torched. A number of Bolivian organizations called on Morales to resign.
