The Empire scores two victories in South America - Venezuela and Argentina
international | anti-war / imperialism | news report Wednesday December 09, 2015 01:00 by 1 of Indymedia
In the recent elections in Venezuela the right wing opposition long backed by Washington has secured a majority by winning 107 out of 167 seats. This is the first time since the early days of deceased former president Chavez rose to power that the right has had control of the parliament.
In the case of Argentina under the previous presidents first of Néstor Kirchner and then his wife Cristina Kirchners a lot of social progress was made since the country went bankrupt in 2001 due to IMF and they managed to reduce poverty by 70% and unemployment was more than halved from 17.2% to 6.9%
Internationally, he has moved immediately to demonstrate his overwhelming loyalty to the United States government, which had been previously demonstrated in confidential U.S. embassy cables published by WikiLeaks. One of his very first statements after being elected was to denounce Venezuela and threaten to have them suspended from Mercosur. Since this is not an issue that was pressing to Argentine voters, it is clear that it is part of the U.S.-led international campaign leading up to Venezuela's December 6 elections, which seeks to delegitimize the government and the elections.
This is a very bad omen given this statement was made before the Venezuela elections while the Socialists were still in power.
For Argentina which was another pillar in the Left alliance of South America, this will be removed. It now means that Brazil -a key member of the BRICS nations is now primarily in the spotlight and will be the next target. The BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa) are the only opposing block that so far have been any sort of challenge or counter weight to the out-of-control rabid neo-liberal corporate capitalists which now dominate all our lives.
So this is now just a case of the US getting back control in it's own backward -and remaking them as the banana republics but by threatening BRICS it scores a major geo-political victory for them.
Elsewhere the R of BRICS is under attack, through the installation of the neo-nazi thugs in Kiev, Ukraine, and the use of the proxy army known as ISIS funded, trained and armed directly by Turkey and Qatar but with overall guideance and direction from covert forces of the Anglo American empire. The goal there is to use Ukraine as a point of chaos and to forment color revolutions in Russia, while at the same time once Syria is dismembered to move onto Iran and do the same there. The ISIS terrorists would then be redeployed to all the countries of Russia southern borders to basically replay the Chechen war but this time to destabalize and break apart the Russia Federation.
