Portugal

After 48 years, the fascist dictatorship in Portugal is brought down in a bloodless coup. The country begins a program of land reform, worker rights and decolonisation. The USA finances the opposition media, opposition political parties and candidates and attacks the new government in its media.

Naval and air exercises off the coast of Portugal with 19 NATO warships moored in Lisbon harbour is seen by most Portuguese as intimidation.
