Revitalizing Hostility

Published: November 10, 2010, Author: JayTaber

Adrienne Pine reports on the Pentagon’s Strategic Culture Initiative,
a project to develop propaganda favorable to US interests in Latin
America. Targeted at recent anti-imperial agreements between a majority
of states in South America — particularly at the democratic
independence of Bolivia — the new psychological warfare partnership
with Florida International University enables the U.S. military to go on
the offensive against self-determination south of the border. Lauding
such enterprises as Peru’s plan to assimilate its indigenous peoples by
annihilating their cultural land base, the renewed Pentagon partnership
with academia is anticipated to revitalize the hostility toward
indigenous peoples promoted by the Reagan Administration.
