The poster was not implying that the corruption began because of US intervention, but that it is MAINTAINED through US intervention.

Well, that’s not how the OP phrased it, but considering that corruption has been maintained for long periods of time without any support from a greater power in numerous instances in history, I think it very questionable to assume causality.

A person may wish to take the position that the Duvaliers would not have happened without US support, but the position is unprovable.
