When Kerala Was A Threat To America

21Jun07

This piece of news is perhaps the best I’ve heard in a while; mostly because it’s just plain hilarious.

http://www.ibnlive.com/news/india/06_2007/cia-helped-in-toppling-communist-govt-in-kerala-43293.html

Ellsworth Bunker, an American diplomat has revealed that the CIA financed Congress led agitations against the Communist government when EMS came into power back in 1957 in Kerala. That’s right. The CIA actually thought the Kerala Government would pose a threat to it’s national interests. They actually thought Kerala would turn India into a threat like China or the Soviet Union. Instead of doling out so much cash on trying to silence the government, all they had to do was come down and talk to the average Malayalee! We’re not that threatening, are we?

If you sense a condescending and cynical tone to the above post, that’s because I’m a true Malayalee.
