Historic photo of the day: July 4 in Puerto Rico

War Against All Puerto Ricans: Revolution and Terror in America’s Colony

 

For seven decades, July 4 was an enormous show of force in Puerto Rico. The U.S. government used it as military and political theater…flexing its muscles for the entire world.  

Three infantry battalions, a tank company, a bombardment squadron, three aerial fighter squadrons, the 504th Field Artillery Battalion, and the 18th Mechanized Cavalry Squadron all marched down Calle Fortaleza to show everyone – especially the Soviet Union – who was boss in the Caribbean.

Here is a photo from July 4, 1955:

  1. Looks like the Germans marching into France in the 1940s. The people don’t look very happy. Heil Hitler syndrome. An invasion of intruders. The people did not ask for those pirates to impose on them and flaunt their weapons of mass destruction.

  2. I find American (European Descent) policy inscrutable and degenerate in application. They assert the North Korean leader to be narcissistic because he (and his father) make such military flauntings, yet they revere their displays of narcissism as noteworthy.
    Hypocrisy at its finest.
