That Wiki article is hilarious "The discourse and corruption facing Latin American people and governments is what prompted the United States influence."
"The term "Banana Wars" was coined much later to cast the motivations for these interventions as almost exclusively the preservation of petty US commercial interests in the region."
Imperialist apologists really do talk through the sides of their mouths. Unexamined imperialism is absolutely rampant in the West right now. It seems to go hand in hand with the project to rehabilitate the concept of empire and propaganda suggesting that slavery wasn't all that bad.
To be fair the US totally takes the ha'penny place in this. These articles don't begin to touch on the horrific racist orgy of slaughter, rape, and looting that the British engaged in, all based on the excuse of China banning Indian opium imports which England profited from greatly.
