And Now (No Surprise Here) Bolivia, Too!

Well, it's no secret that Castro and Chavez have been cozying up to each other and to Iran (and its flunky, Hezbollah), and that the Tri-Border area (Argentina-Brazil-Paraguay) is a hotbed of Hezbollah activity, but now Bolivia's Evo Morales has made it official (hat tip: Voz de Aztlan):



Cuba, Venezuela and Bolivia sign People's Trade Treaty

April 29, 2006

The presidents of Cuba, Venezuela and Bolivia have signed the People's Trade Treaty to counter a US-led drive to forge a Pan-American free trade area. Presidents Evo Morales of Bolivia, Hugo Chavez of Venezuela, and Fidel Castro of Cuba signed the pact in Havana today to streamline commercial ties among the three governments. They are all opposed to US trade policies that they say overwhelmingly favour the United States. Castro described the accord as "an extraordinary document with profound humanitarian, social and economic content. Now, for the first time, there are three of us," Castro said. "I believe that, one day, all of Latin America can be here", Castro added.

Morales said upon arrival in Cuba on Friday: "It will be a great meeting of three generations of revolutionaries, of people representing the three revolutions that we still have to broaden." The Bolivian leader expressed confidence that the treaty would help promote "fair trade, trade that generates jobs, ensures living standards and defends human dignity".

The initiative promoted by Castro and Chavez is an attempt to circumvent US plans for the Free Trade Area of theAmericas (FTAA). The three presidents call the FTAA a US effort to annex Latin America.

    This could have thwarted or even prevented IF Kennedy had not betrayed La Brigada 2506 at La Playa de Girón, better known as The Bay of Pigs, on April 17, 1961.

    There have been several other such adventures in subsequent years, and, inexplicably, our national attention has drifted to other parts of the world, leaving the Western Hemisphere open for the misadventure; as long as the caudillos, or strongmen were in league with Washington, no one was worried.

    But, and there always is a but, populism is raising its ugly head. Who can blame the poulations living in misery, under repression, observing the depicted "good life" in the United States and wondering why, even though their governments cozied up to Washington, they weren't getting a piece of the pie and a share of action. No wonder they became resentful and decided to turn toward the siren song of socialism, income and land re-distribution, and retribution against their persecutors.

    They see themselves as victims, and, as do those in the Muslim world, they blame the United States. In the same way, their elites have shifted the blame from themselves to the United States.

    We have too long missed the snakes under our feet and in the near weeds for fear of attack from the ravening beasts of the Middle East. It's time to focus on our part of the world, and in particular, on the dangers that have crawled into our neighborhoods.

    Cubed,
    the Tri-Border area (Argentina-Brazil-Paraguay) is a hotbed of Hezbollah activity...

    As a Spanish major, I tend to watch developments in Latin America and read about the Tri-Border area a few years back in US News & World Report, among other national news magazines. But many at this weekend's symposium didn't know about Hezbollah's presence there; one speaker on the panel gave the information.

    Bolivia is a font of coca. Think of how the funding for terror can now be expanded!

    BTW, the use of drug money was briefly a topic at the symposium. The particular drug mentioned was khat.

    According to Dr. Phares, Latin America is one of the next areas in which terrorists will proliferate. Africa is another.

    Incidently that lonely 'Latino seperatist' 'Ernesto Cienfuegos of 'LaVozDeAztlan' (linked in that hat tip) is well famous with his Jihad-apologetic and vicious hatred for Israel, (even with "9/11 conspiracy theoriss stories",)which goes hand in hand.

    He calls out to free California from the US, calls it 'Occupied baja California', imagine that.

    I am not surprised that his best friends are the "lovebale" (aggressors-self-made-victims, aka) 'Palestinians'.

    Re: 'AlwaysOnWatch' truth regarding that particular S. American Triangle region Hezbullah/Hamas Jihad & smuggling-profits market, slowly but surely the Brazilians are gaining some control, lately they have confiscated 160 busses coming in from Paraguay that were not 'kosher' so to speak, surely some of them had to do with the "Holy" smuggling.

    Eleanor,

    "We have too long missed the snakes under our feet and in the near weeds for fear of attack from the ravening beasts of the Middle East. It's time to focus on our part of the world, and in particular, on the dangers that have crawled into our neighborhoods."

    Oh, my, yes.

    Having totally messed up with the Bay of Pigs fiasco, and having made numerous other mistakes along the way, it is imperative that we focus on the immediate problems that our open borders represent.

    AOW,

    You report that

    "...many at this weekend's symposium didn't know about Hezbollah's presence there; one speaker on the panel gave the information."


    Thank goodness the word is getting out; on that very subject, I commented just a moment ago over at your blog that it's time for us to recognize (and spread the word) that the border problem isn't a separate problem, it's the second aspect of the same problem - that, of course, being the goal of world-wide conquest by Islam.

    If Islam's South American buddies think that this "friendship" will last beyond Islam's achievement of its goal of the conquest of the United States, they've got another think coming.

    They are currently being as guilty of the foolish choice of allies as we have been in the past, and if they "get what they wish for" (the downfall of the U.S.), it will definitely have unintended consequences for them.

    Let Non Arab...,

    Re: the Brazilian success...I hope you're right, and I hope it continues!

    I just saw your blog, and I will recommend it to others! You have access to the kind of information that I have trouble finding. Your most recent piece on the little girl was horrifying.

    Dear Cubed.
    I appreciate it.
    Thanks, we are all in this together for freedom and good values!

    I just posted about the "loyal peaceful" groups' sticking their noses in the immigration issue.

    It's part of (apparent pattern of)attempts by certain Muslims to break alliance with south American revolutionists.

    It started with:

    * Iranians meeting with Chavez.

    * Special deals (Brazilian leader) Lola made with the Arabs last year.
