Ending the Cold War on Cuba? From the Freezer to the Chiller

As US President Barack Obama announced his surprise «historic» bid to normalise relations with Cuba this week, the New York Times swooned with glowing news. ‘US to Restore Full Relations With Cuba, Erasing a Last Trace of Cold War Hostility’ was how its top headline put it. Welcoming the development, the American «newspaper of record» said Obama vowed to «cut loose the shackles of the past» and to «sweep aside one of the last vestiges of the Cold War». But, purple prose aside, the hard detail is that the ongoing illegal American embargo on Cuba will stay in place. Moreover, the move comes as Washington slaps on more sanctions against Russia and unleashes new sanctions on Venezuela...

Rafael Correa – Hugo Chavez’s Political Successor

...Many in Latin America believe that after Hugo Chavez, Rafael Correa became America’s main target. Correa’s decision to close the US air base at Manta was taken particularly badly by Washington. The agreement on its use expired in 2009, and Correa announced that the contract would not be extended. Washington was asked to open an Ecuadorian base in the US on a reciprocal basis. «That’s not how we do things», replied the US State Department. Ecuador’s response came immediately: «In which case, there will not be a US military base in Ecuador either»... Rafael Correa has no intention of changing his country’s foreign policy, which is geared towards Latin American integration, the development of a multipolar world, and the maintenance of close relations with countries like China and Russia. For these reasons, John Kerry’s visit to Ecuador, which has been rumoured in the media all year, will not take place.

US Intelligence Agencies and the Argentine Season of Provocations

There is less than a year to go before the presidential elections in Argentina, scheduled to take place on 25 October. Cristina Fernández de Kirchner has twice won the battle for the highest government post, in 2007 and 2011, and so is unable to re-run for the presidency. The question of her successor is being discussed increasingly frequently in Argentina... According to political analysts, the attacks currently being launched against the Argentine president are part of an elaborate plan to ensure the rise to power of political forces loyal to the US and a radical change of policy... The staff at the US embassy in Argentina by way of the State Department, the Pentagon and the intelligence agencies is already full of professionals in terms of assessing Argentina’s status as «pre-crisis»...

Weapons and Manpower for a Color Revolution in Venezuela

Reports surface in the Latin American media with alarming regularity about seizures by law-enforcement agencies of large shipments of US-made weapons. Such events are becoming noticeably more frequent in Bolivia, Ecuador, Nicaragua, and Argentina - countries that the Obama administration considers unfriendly. But most often, news of the discovery of arms caches comes from Venezuela...

Is Latin America’s ‘Pink Tide’ Ebbing?

Many in Official Washington still consider Latin America their “backyard,” a place where U.S. interests rule and where leftist and reformist governments have historically faced “regime change” tactics. But the region has finally broken from U.S. control and isn’t ready to go back, reports Andrés Cala.

Soros and CIA Suffer Huge Defeat in Brazil

The Central Intelligence Agency and its George Soros-funded «democracy manipulators» in Brazil suffered a major defeat with the re-election as president of Brazil of Workers’ Party standard bearer and ex-Marxist guerrilla Dilma Rouseff... With Rousseff now re-elected, the BRICS will continue to develop the New Development Bank (NDB) and its $100 billion currency reserve arrangement (CRA), or currency basket, that member countries can loans draw from, thus weaning themselves away from the Western political controls of the World Bank and IMF. Rousseff’s re-election will also permit BRICS, which faced losing Brazil as a member had Rousseff lost the election, to expand its membership base...

New Composition of UN Security Council, Prospects for 2015

On October 16 the United Nations General Assembly elected a new United Nations Security Council (UNSC). According to UN Charter, there are fifteen Council members - five permanent with 10 others elected. Half of non-permanent members are re-elected every year. Non-permanent members have no veto right but still possess considerable clout, especially when they join together. First, the United Nations Security Council is the main UN organ responsible for peace and international security. It can approve the use of force. Recently there were cases when non-permanent members hindered the passing of draft resolutions submitted by permanent UNSC members...

Soros and the CIA Now Banking on Neves to Defeat Rousseff

After the corporate media and the CIA and George Soros manipulators tried to engineer Green Party-turned-Brazilian Socialist presidential candidate Marina Silva into the Brazilian presidency after the classic CIA textbook aerial assassination of Socialist Party presidential standard bearer Eduardo Campos, these same forces are at it again on behalf of Social Democratic Party candidate Aecio Neves... Neves’s chief economic adviser and the man who would become Finance Minister in a Neves presidency is Arminio Fraga Neto. A former close friend and associate of Soros and his Quantum hedge fund, Fraga is hoping that a Neves presidency will open up Brazil to “market forces,” the very same forces that have declared economic war on Venezuela and are attempting to swindle Argentina through vulture funds run by Soros’s Wall Street friends...

Brazil under CIA Pressure

Over two thousand Brazilian political activists, intellectuals, people of art and culture signed a manifest on October 26 highlighting the hostile actions of Washington aimed at prevention of Dilma Rousseff election victory. The document is posted to social nets. It says the coming to power of Aécio Neves of the Brazilian Social Democracy Party (Partido da Social Democracia Brasileira - PSDB), who serves the interests of tycoons, will inflict irreparable damage to the country and take away all the snags on the way of US direct interference into the Brazilian internal affairs. Neves is to play the role of obedient tool in the hands of US administration. Washington goes to any length to achieve its goal and bring the desired candidate to power – some things are done covertly, some tricks are resorted to in a clandestine way...

Presidential Race in Brazil: Neoliberals in a Bid to Get Revenge

The pre-election campaign in Brazil has become even more sharply contested after the first round of vote on October 5. Marina Silva supported by Washington and the opponents of the incumbent President had to leave the race with only 21,3 % of votes. Dilma Rousseff, the left-wing Workers Party candidate (41,1 %) will face off Aécio Neves, the candidate from the Brazilian Social Democracy Party (33,7 %), in the run-off election on October 26. The candidates face an uphill battle. Neves is supported by US and West European information agencies. He opposes the policy that has been implemented during the recent 12 years by the ruling Workers Party...
