The revolt of U.S.troops after the Second World War

U.S.troops There are historical facts that remain unknown to the general public. One of these was the rebellion of the U.S.troops just after the Second World War. One of the few exceptions  described these events, as far as I know, was the book of F. Gaja, The Short Century, Maquis Publisher.

 (1)Just finished the conflict, revolution suffocated in the Imperialist Metropolis thanks to the agreements of Yalta returned to press on the outskirts of the historical policy of the peoples of colonial and semi-colonial dominated and controlled by imperialism. Even in the absence of the subjective conditions of the joint between metropolis and periphery the rebellion of the colonial and semi-colonial peoples, it was still part of the class struggle between the bourgeoisie and the proletariat internationally.In the first place because it did enter the circle of life of the class struggle of the oppressed masses exterminated, secondly this process in place of the semi-colonial peoples and is a destabilizing factor of the bourgeois order and thirdly the struggle of oppressed peoples is intended I reset the antagonism between classes within the imperialist metropolises.

To put this process in motion, have been several mechanisms including:

1)     The colonial soldiers called to participate in the war that had been touted as a war for freedom and democracy, claiming the war was over, to the colonialist countries for which they had fought, freedom and democracy for their countries.

2)     The partisans who had fought guerrilla wars inAsiaagainst the Japanese after the war refused to be disarmed.

3)     Still inAsia, the Japanese lost war handed power in the hands of local indigenous bourgeoisies, who proclaimed their independent countries

As soon as the war ended, most of the colonial and semi-colonial countries, inAfricaandAsia, was triggered as a product of the imperialist war just ended, in revolt.

In front of this huge upheaval, the U.S. at the time were the sole possessor of the atomic bomb, which worked as a deterrent against both the USSR which in 1949 possessed an atomic weapon, and in respect of the working classes leaders of the colonial and semi-colonial.
