that happens. elaborate posts are best drafted outside the comment section. maybe there were too many links, maybe you used c*cktail, maybe it was just too long ... nobody knows. if you still have a draft, you could try dividing it and comment in seperate posts

where is there no doubt?
mr starikov seems to be a politician.
if the us held back weapons to chiang kai shek, battista and somosa, were they delivering them at first and why?
did the cia ever try to make up for their withholding information by trying to assasinate castro or sabotage cuba?
which characterisation of batista and somosa are you referring to and in what press? larouche source etc ...
you might have guessed i don't agree with the analyses. as your analyses points out and imo, there's no such thing as 'independent capitalism'. capitalism is competition by all means (which sometimes involves fake populist 'revolutions', i concede, and often war and fascism), but i don't believe competition-fearing capitalists were the main driving force behind these revolutions. but they sure were a major force stunting their succes, imo.

don't you think one can find more instances where these elites tried to undermine these revolutions, like the allied intervention in russia in 1918 (for the same reasons, 'da money' and the fear of the 'good/bad example')? that is: sabotaging all competitors and 'freeing the markets' anywhere, which is the nature of capitalism.

" ... its militarized humanitarian interventions not only often cause direct unintended humanitarian harm, ...", 'unintended', really? (even when talking somewhat sensible the r2p-arrogance keeps oozing out).

see davidsonjc above. capitalists don't mind if capital is in the hands of the state, in the status quo they control the state ('fascism' has been with us for a long time). what they fear is not capital in the hands of the state, but in the hands of the workers, the people (note this is not 'people outside of state control' maggie was talking about)

"Publishers, editors, and reporters considered it a big honor to be serving the CIA as a trusted asset in the global war on communism." - and that's why in the same article still: "...in combination with North Korea’s socialist economic system, to the economic impoverishment of the North Korean people" and "... "In combination with Cuba’s socialist system, the embargo has squeezed the lifeblood out of the Cuban people".

those summits aren't really 'debates', i think.
