20. They were nationalists, that's all. This was between the greed of American corporations
and the will of nations and people in South America. not about communism or the cold war. These are countries whose leaders decided to keep their oil, example. During the dictatorship, all Brazilian oil was sent to the United States, refined in the US, then sold back to Brazil as gasoline. Not no more. That aint communism. It is quite capitalist, a little less greedy than our country, but still capitalism.
As a matter of fact, several of the presidents you are calling "communist" supported the fascists during the second world war. they only became US allies because we bought them with money.
populist yes
nationalist yes
communist no.
