Latin America Chooses Russia-Made Weapons

Latin American experts know it well – Russia-made weapons are known for quality. Rosoboronexport (the state intermediary agency for Russia’s exports/imports of defense-related products, technologies and services) has rich experience of doing deals in the Western Hemisphere – from Mexico to Chile... FIDAE-2014, the International Air and Space Fair, took place on March 25 – 28, 2014, in Santiago de Chile. It became another step on the way of expanding Russia’s presence on Latin American arms market...

U.S. Turning into Latin America's Backyard

The second summit of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) January 28-29 aroused great interest, first and foremost because this organization of Western Hemisphere countries does not include the U.S. or Canada... The second CELAC summit was able to achieve consolidation of the positions of member countries on many issues. The strategic goal is the integration of Latin American states. CELAC has appeared on the international arena as the only «authorized representative» of Latin American and Caribbean countries. The United States will have to gradually get over its complex of superiority in the Western Hemisphere; otherwise the Latin Americans will someday turn the territory north of the Rio Grande into their «backyard»...

Latin America and the U.S.: The Apotheosis of Distrust

The year 2013 was shockingly damaging to relations between the U.S. and the countries of Latin America. Edward Snowden's revelations showed that in the Western Hemisphere, Washington is trying to play only by the rules it itself has written. Using such spying programs as Prism, Boundless Informant and others, U.S. intelligence was collecting strategically useful information throughout the South American continent and using it to ensure the effectiveness of its policy in the region...

Latin America against U.S. Aggression in Syria

Venezuelan Member of Parliament Adel el-Zabayar, a Syrian by descent, lost no time in returning to his homeland. Zabayar explained to his friends in the Arab Federation in Venezuela, of which he is the president, that the time has come for all patriots in the Arab world to take arms to defend Syria from the threat of aggression. Many immigrants from Arab countries in Latin America have followed his example. Without publicizing their plans, they are arriving in Syria by various routes. The formation of the first battalion of volunteer fighters from Latin America is almost complete...

Edward Snowden: Human Rights Advocate and His Secret Mission

Italy, France, Spain and Portugal have resorted to pirate-like actions to make the plane of Evo Morales, the President of Bolivia, land and be inspected... There is no doubt about who is behind the manhunt for the Latin American President, an Indian by origin... Paris, Rome, Madrid and Lisbon have proven they enjoy no independence while taking decision on international issues. The stance of Spain and Portugal is especially shameful; they have undermined their privileged relations with the Latin American states for a long time to come...

The Hunt for the President's Plane

It is not that important from what source U.S. intelligence received a signal that Edward Snowden would be transported out of Russia on the airplane of Bolivian President Evo Morales; the important thing is that the information turned out to be disinformation. Through allied governments in Europe – France, Italy, Spain and Portugal – Washington tried to organize a humiliating inspection of the presidential airplane in violation of all international conventions and treaties on the immunity of state leaders...

Total Airport Nationalization Will Eliminate Travel Industry Thieves

Bolivian President Evo Morales recently nationalized his nation’s three main airports – La Paz, Cochabama, and Santa Cruz – taking control of the facilities from the firm Servicios de Aeropuertos Bolivianos (SABSA) that operated the airports on behalf of the Barcelona-based company Albertis... Morales took a step that many Western governments should also take. As a result of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the United States, a number of companies, many linked to Israelis, have concocted security schemes that have maximized profits for select individuals...

The U.S. prepares for military action in Bolivia

The scandal over the "scientific team from the USA" broke out, despite attempts by the U.S. Embassy in Bolivia to kill it off. In June 2012, a team of team of specialists numbering 50 people came to the country, ostensibly to study the adverse effects of high altitude on humans and their capacity for rapid recovery of their fighting ability. To avoid attracting attention, the Americans used tourist visas and passed through border control in small groups... Officially, the expedition was headed by Robert Roach of the University of Colorado, but in reality, the "research team" was subordinate to U.S. military intelligence officers (Defense Intelligence Agency - DIA)...

Obama for a «second time» and Latin Americans: with no illusions

Surfing the internet of about three dozen on line Latin American newspapers, I found that the reaction of the continent to the re-election of Barack Obama is generally positive, though far from any illusions... There is pessimism about the possibility of «breakthrough initiatives» from Obama in Latin America...

Political Manipulations with the Price of Oil

The drop in oil prices that began at the same time as Islamic State (IS) attacks in Iraq and Syria is impossible to explain with economic factors. The world has long been used to the fact that the market has reacted to every war in the Middle East, where 47 per cent of the world’s ‘black gold’ reserves are concentrated, with a sharp jump in oil prices. That is what happened during the two wars in the Persian Gulf, and that is also what happened when the Americans began their ‘mission to restore democracy’ in Afghanistan. And speculation about a possible military conflict between the US and Iran was accompanied by the expectation of a jump in oil prices of up to $200 a barrel and higher. At present, everything has turned upside down, but for how long?..
