Not to be cute, funny, snarky, or unsympathetic to those suffering in the many shit hole countries in the world, but yes. Indeed. Sadly, there are many “shit hole” countries in the world where people live on less than $3.00 a day.
But why are they shit holes?
THE THIRD WORLD
During the Cold War the term Third World was used to distinguish nations that were neither aligned with the Western allies (NATO) nor with the East Communist bloc.
Today the term is synonymous with any nations plagued by massive poverty, famine, lack of clean water and poor sanitation.
By definition, these countries can be described as “shit holes”.
Third World Countries: Poverty
The world´s most impoverished countries
The least developed countries (LDCs) are a group of countries that have been identified by the UN as “least developed”.
United Nations used the following three criteria for the identification of the LDCs
1. a low-income estimate of the gross national income (GNI) per capita.
2. their weak human assets and
3. their high-degree of economic vulnerability.
There are 50 countries listed in the United Nations comparative analysis of poverty. 34-African countries, 10-Asian countries, 5- Pacific Island Nations and 1-Caribbean nation.
Third World Countries: Press Freedom
Reporters Without Borders is publishing annually an index of the countries of the world according to their respect for press freedom.
Below the list of countries, you can call them Third World of Press Freedom, the “black holes” for news where the privately-owned media is not allowed and freedom of expression does not exist. A list of countries right at the bottom of the fourth World Press Freedom Index.
|154||Saudi Arabia||Middle East||66,00|
|155||Lao PDR||South-East Asia||66,50|
|157||Iraq||Western Asia/ Middle East||67,00|
|163||Myanmar (Burma)||South-East Asia||88,83|
|167||North Korea||Eastern Asia||109,00|

Third World Countries: Political rights and Civil liberties
Third World countries have the most repressive regimes in the world.
Below is a list of countries with the worst records for political rights and civil liberties. Within these countries and territories, state control over daily life is pervasive and wide-ranging, independent organizations and political opposition are banned or suppressed, and fear of retribution for-independent-thought and action is part of daily life.
According to the Freedom House report Freedom in the World 2007, there are eight countries judged to have the worst records:
Burma (Myanmar), Cuba, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Sudan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan.
Also included are two territories, Chechnya (Russian Federation) and Tibet, whose inhabitants suffer intense repression. These states and regions received the Freedom House survey’s lowest rating: 7 for political rights and 7 for civil
The report also includes nine more countries near the bottom of Freedom House’s list of the most repressive countries:
Belarus, China, Cote d’Ivoire, Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea, Laos, Saudi Arabia, Syria, and Zimbabwe.
The territory of Western Sahara (most of the territory is controlled by Morocco) is also included in this group.
While these states scored slightly better than the “worst of the worst,” they offer very limited-scope for private discussion while severely suppressing opposition political activity, impeding independent organizing, and censoring or punishing criticism of the state.

WHY ARE THESE COUNTRIES SO POOR?
Mostly because of greed and corruption disguised as “Nation Building” after World War 2.
Nation Building is globalist-speak for “collectivism.”
These UN promoted schemes have been hoisted up by US Foreign Policy, but not geared to Nation Building and economic development of the Third World as these great expenditures were sold to US taxpayers funding it, but rather for crony corporations to profit while retarding the development of the Third World and decreasing its population
In 1974 Secretary of State Henry Kissinger issued MEMORANDUM 200, regarding the Third World. Int he report, Kissinger stated that the number one National Security priority of the United States regarding the Third World was depopulation.
To this day, UN food shipments to Third World countries are stopped, or delayed if countries do not comply with mandated vaccine and population reduction protocols.
The IMF/World Bank keep the governments of these nations funded and in perpetual debt that can never be repaid. As a result of this arrangement, all the natural resources of the nations are plundered by the banksters to maintain food and economic aid. The FIAT money flow keeps their puppet dictators in check and the country in debt.
If things run afoul with said dictator, another bankster puppet is put in place, usually by funding and fomenting a revolution or assassination. This is the modus operandi of their method to maintain political power behind the scenes. Since 1947, the muscle for these regime changes have been supplied by the CIA/Mossad/MI6.
The hidden hand behind America has used the US Military to achieve it’s objectives, funding both sides of all conflicts and and fomenting wars ever since.
General Smedley Butler wrote openly of his personal experience with these racketeers in his 1935 booklet, WAR IS A RACKET.
The term “Banana Republic” originates from the “Banana Wars”.
The Banana Wars were the occupations, police actions, and interventions on the part of the United States in Central America and the Caribbean at the end of the Spanish–American War in 1898.
These military interventions were most often carried out by the United States Marine Corps, which developed a manual regarding operations entitled, The Strategy and Tactics of Small Wars (1921).
The Navy provided gunfire support and Army troops were also use n occasion to protect the US Sugar Trust during the first decades of Honduras’ history, which is marked by political turmoil and economic crisis. (Sound familiar?)
The instability led to more than 200 armed conflicts between independence and the rise to power of the Carias government, due in part to American business influence in the country.
The ultimate goal in the acquisition of a contract was to control the process from production to distribution of bananas.
The companies, (namely the Vaccaro Brother’s Standard Fruit Company, the Cuyamel Fruit Company and the United Fruit Company) would finance guerrilla fighters, presidential campaigns and governments.[source]
U.S. Marine Corps Major General, Smedley Butler, nick named “Maverick Marine” saw action in Honduras in 1903. He served in Nicaragua enforcing American policy from 1909 to 1912, was awarded the Medal of Honor for his role in Veracruz in 1914, and a second Medal of Honor for bravery in Haiti in 1915.
General Butler was a true American Hero who won two Medals of Honor. In 1934, General Butler exposed Wall Street’s fascist plot to overthrow the government after he was approached to lead an army of 500,000 men by Skull And Bones adept, Connecticut Senator Prescott Bush.
Of course, there were no hearings, trials, or consequences for the banksters involved back then, or when they last crashed the economy in 2008.
In 1935, he denounced the role he had played, describing himself as “a high class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers…a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism”.
The Third World is yet another crony capitalist criminal racket – from top to bottom. From the puppet dictator of the “banana republics”, to the corrupt shakedown cop, everyone wets their beaks. Everyone except of course, those who need it the most, the impoverished masses.
