Enver Hoxha on the rise of U.S. Imperialism

SpeechJVS

“The United States of America became the leadership of the capitalist world and took upon itself the role of its ‘saviour.’ Thus the pretentions of American imperialism to world domination were placed on the agenda. ‘The victory in the Second World War,’ declared Harry Truman, who replaced Franklin Roosevelt as president, ‘faced the American people with the permanent and urgent task of becoming the world leader’. In essence this was a call for struggle against the revolution and socialism, to win new dominant economic and military positions throughout the whole world, to restore its partners and to save the colonial system. In order to realize this strategy, UNRRA was used, the ‘Marshall Plan’ was drafted, NATO was created, and other aggressive blocs of American imperialism were set up.”

 – Enver Hoxha, Eurocommunism is Anti-Communism, 1980
