Fidel Castro (who is still alive) John Foster Dulles He was the public face (Secretary of State) 1953(comes into office) – 1959 (dies) His life’s ambition is to be a great statesman, which means he must be anti-communist He is motivated by his reputation Allen Dulles Ambition: To be Kremlins worst nightmare Allen is the one who provokes fear from the Russians (when he is Director of the CIA) August 1953: The CIA decides to initiate a coup d’état against the royal family in Jordan (the Hashemite family). Mosaddegh: Stalin sent Russian troops into Iran The British gain the right to develop oil in Iran Mosaddegh took British oil, but offered to compensate the British British aren’t happy and ask the United States to boycott Mosaddegh’s oil This forces Mosaddegh to sell oil to the Russians Operation Ajax happens and Zahedi becomes Mosaddegh’s replacement’s John Foster Dulles’ job is to lie about the Coup d’état and act in the interest of anti-communism (In the 1950’s , no one believes that the government would not tell the truth). The United States wanted Mosaddegh out because he might have been a weak leader – he might have been taken over by the Russians. Jacobo Arbenz Democratically elected president of Guatemala He had done two things that the United State Government didn’t like o Allowed all political parties to join government o Land reform program – nationalized millions of acres from the United Fruit Company (an American Firm) Because of this, the CIA organized a Coup d’état against Arbenz (killing many Guatemalan citizens in the process) Mural – “Glorious Victory” – was painted by Diego Rivera – It portrayed his creative take on the coup Secret Government HONR 199-3 Notes taken on February 12 th 1950 – 1962: Arms race between the United States and the Soviet Union (The word “strategic” means nuclear weapons) 1950 – 1955: The United States have long-range bombers The U.S. starts developing a fleet of these The US turns to Great Britain and asks them to build bases for bombs in Britain (they say yes) 1955 – 59: The Soviet Union has Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles 1957 – 1962: The United States and the Soviet Union have medium range ballistic missiles (The United States approach the British for some bases for Ballistic Missiles) 1959 – 1960: Subsurface Ballistic Missiles Polaris: range of 1,200 to 1,500 miles and can be fired under water Congo: Belgium colonized the Congo and allowed them to become independent in the summer of 1960. The part of Congo with the most economic value is Katanga (uranium and diamonds were mined there). Belgium wanted at least some influence still in this part. On June 30 , 1960, the Congo held its first national election. The Assembly chosen included President Kasauvbu and Prime Minister Lumumba. Both proposed to lead a government that governs its entire country, including Katanga. Lumumba has the real political power. th On July 11 , Lumumba asks for help from the United Nations, who agree to send peace keeping forces. Tshombe wants to be the head of Katanga. Later in July, Lumumba visits the United States and does not leave a good impression. He leave the US empty-handed. So, Lumumba goes to the Soviet Union. August 1960: The CIA begins plans to relieve of Lumumba from power th On September 14 , the military steps in and takes control On November 27 , Lumumba flees th On January 19 , Lumumba is beaten and killed (the CIA [meaning Allen Dulles] heads to kill Lumumba, because January 19 is the day John F. Kennedy is inaugurated). Reason behind this Coup D’état: Kitona is a naval base for the Belgium’s (located in the Congo along the Atlantic Ocean) Kamina is a military based for the Belgium’s (located in the Congo) The United States thinks the Soviet Union might be able to track US submarines in the Atlantic Ocean from this point But, we do not know for sure that the United States was involved in the death of Lumumba o Documents say “reduce and eliminate the influence of . . .
