Eurasian Union and Latin America-2: what we will turn the United States into

Eurasian Union and Latin America-2: what we will turn the United States into

Does Russia have the right and real opportunity to intervene in the political development of a region that is in the interests of the United States? Washington, it would seem, never let go of Latin America.

The United States is favored by geographic proximity, economic ties, a two-century tradition of monopolistic management of US domestic affairs according to the Monroe Doctrine and a timely response to the restoration of the former influence in the region. The State Department has an adequate understanding of the situation.

The USA and the Russian Federation: Who Will Become a Guide to Integration in Latin America?

Seeing that the countries of the region are gaining strength, in 2008 the Southern Command of the US forces (the zone of responsibility - Latin America, headquarters - Miami, Florida) was strengthened by the restored 4th fleet Navy. This unit existed from 1943 to 1950, was used during the Second World War, but shortly after its end it was disbanded as unnecessary. Now, obviously, the need arose again.

Also, the United States is concerned about the promotion of its partners as leaders of integration. First of all, we are talking about Mexico - the most powerful Spanish-speaking country in the region, the second economy in Latin America after Brazil. So maybe in the Western Hemisphere we should confine ourselves to economic cooperation?

However, regardless of our answer on the spot, the question is perceived quite clearly. Any presence of Russia (and of Belarus, which is actively promoting its interests in Venezuela), is an intervention in the sphere of interests of Washington. In November, 2013, Russia twice faced protests from Colombia - another ally of the United States.

The first case was associated with the transfer of Tu-160 bombers from Nicaragua to Venezuela. The fact is that Colombia, contrary to the decisions of the international court of the UN, claims to the waters of the Caribbean Sea directly off the coast of Nicaragua. Thus, flying over the territorial waters of Nicaragua towards Venezuela, the planes allegedly “violated” the airspace of Colombia. Of course, it was just a reason.

However, it is possible without any reason. Only hushed up the issue with the passage of the bombers, as the Colombian parliament began to hysteric about the fact that Russia is violating the current military-political balance in the region. Almost not going to fight on the side of Nicaragua. Allegedly, a Russian naval officer said so. The Foreign Ministry was justified, many words were said that “the interaction of Russia with the countries of the region invariably characterizes a constructive mindset based on mutual respect.” In short, the conflict settled. But the sediment remained.

The main principle is to play seriously

From these examples it is important to draw the right conclusions. The point is not how unfriendly Russians are greeted in certain countries of Latin America. In some, on the contrary, it is very friendly. But both friends and enemies rightly believe that non-political cooperation does not exist. If Russia is working in Latin America, then it is also in the game. It will not be limited to "mutually beneficial relations" in the economic sphere. Together with cooperation, Russia is posting its political map of the world to the region, as the Soviet Union once brought the communist catechism to this continent.

No need to shyly disguise your values ​​under the banal desire for profit. The United States talks a lot about democracy and other “global assets” (if it can be translated from the English global commons) - for them this is the dimensional scale of all world processes. But we also have certain guidelines. They need to be called.

Russia and other countries of the Customs Union are in favor of uniting culturally and ethnically close peoples of Latin America - just like integration in Eurasia. Russia sells modern weapons systems because it supports the willingness of the states of the western hemisphere to defend their independence. We profess universal principles, why hide them? Yes, while this policy is also economically beneficial. Naturally.

We do not know how the political development of the western hemisphere will actually go, but the most general trends are already visible. Latin America is not only changing itself, it is also changing the neighboring United States. Changes their cultural, religious and linguistic appearance. Soon the Americans will switch from whiskey and bourbon to tequila. The Great American high-tech wall, which was built along the Mexican border, does not help migrants either.

Here are the statistics: in the US 1980 there were 14 million Latin Americans, now their 52 million, including illegal migrants. How many will be in just a few decades? Moreover, unlike immigrants from other parts of the world, “Latinos” retain their culture, language, Catholic faith, and their corresponding attitude towards marriage, abortion, and children. In addition, they settle mainly in the southern states. Thus, by the middle of the XXI century, either the United States will become another country, or in the south it will not be the United States at all. However, in this case, the established communication with Latin America will not be superfluous.

    If the United States thinks they have the right to intervene in the affairs of Ukraine and the Crimea, then God himself ordered us to intervene in the political development of the countries of South America.

      Well, let's say this path does not promise to be easy. To the recent statements by Shoigu on expanding the geography of the deployment of Russian military bases - Venezuela and Nicaragua clearly washed their hands. And these are the main allies in the region. What to speak for others ?!

      Just do not need to be like children, he did the muck - do it in return. All actions must be deliberate.
      I agree with the logic of the article. This approach is applicable to any region, be it South America or West Africa. You just need to always understand your real capabilities and needs. And you need to understand how much it costs to maintain your influence in every part of the planet. Unlike the United States, today we do not have a printing press, so we cannot compete on equal terms. However, Russia defends one principle antagonistic to the United States. This is the principle of the sovereign choice of a people or a state. The US always wants to be dominant. It is on this card that it is worth playing in Latin and South America. Of course, with an economic benefit for Russia. And for this you need an "information command," you need to bring the principles of rationality of "your own choice and responsibility" as opposed to "imposed prosperity" from the United States to the opinion of local residents through your media and other resources.
      This will give us significant political and cultural advantages without requiring any major expense. Of course, you need to have a backup plan for "closer friendship," in case the US plays into its missile defense system and we need closer launching sites for the planet's anti-asteroid defense. "And the question why" in Cuba and so close to US territory, "we will" answer. " that it is more convenient to launch rockets from the equator, less fuel is needed. "

    The article is rather weak. The problem is identified, but not disclosed. As far as I can tell, in the Western Hemisphere there is a movement, as in the EU. Only little is said about her. We have little to say.
    Today, the question of the possibility of uniting Canada, the United States and Mexico into a single state is interesting, since the borders between these countries disappear and their population unites into one gigantic pan-continental police state of imposed socialism.

      As for the unification of Canada and the United States, I would still think, there is still one policy, but French-speaking Quebec will be against it, and so they run into the Naglo-Saxons, right up to the formation of their own state. Well, and Mexico, they still consider the territory of Texas, Arizona, California, Utah, Nevada their own, illegally "squeezed" by the Americans after the war of 1846-1848. Soon, the percentage of the Hispanic population will exceed the impudent ones and Mexico will quietly annex the southern United States. hi

    Latin America is an emerging new pole of power, and the better relations Russia has with it, the better. Already now in many countries of Latin America there are many forces that do not like the place of the "US backyard", so we must cooperate with them. As an example, China, Russia and Latin America are the forces that must destroy that rotten, false-two-faced system of Anglo-Saxon domination, built after 1991.

    Latin America is represented by its largest country in the BRICS (Brazil), three countries - Argentina, Brazil and Mexico - in the G20. Latin Americans are more and more independent in the UN and its specialized bodies, proactively and persistently behave in the negotiation process within the WTO. (Russia and Latin America are natural allies. Yuri Paniev. Columnist for Nezavisimaya Gazeta)
    However, the logic of Latin America’s geopolitical positioning is such that the more its countries get out of Washington's guardianship, the more intensively they are oriented towards economic and political cooperation with Russia and other post-Soviet states. And this is a market that accounts for 8% of global GDP. (Eurasian Union and Latin America: how we will help each other.)

    "1943-1953 years. - Latin American initiatives of Stalin’s policy towards Latin America should be seen as a continuation of the implementation of the “great Pacific program” of Emperor Nicholas II, disrupted by the First World War - this continuation was Stalin’s initiative to create the Ocean Fleet in 1946 ...
    On February 7, 1953, in an interview with Argentinean Ambassador Leopold Bravo in the presence of USSR Foreign Minister A.Ya. Vyshinsky, IV Stalin - less than a month before his death - invited Latin American countries to “unite and create something like the United States of South America "and promised to provide economic assistance. (Vladimir Karpets.http: //

    The relationship of the CU (EAC) with the countries of Latin America is reciprocal and has historical roots, contrary to the US hegemony policy in the New World. The influence of the United States is still strong on this continent and they are trying to keep it, for example, resuscitated 4 US fleets (operating along the American continent). Now they use the same methods in Venezuela as in Kiev (the only tactic that exposes US services). By the way, on March 7, a gold reserve of Ukraine was exported to the United States from Kiev airport (Boryspil) (Anglo-Saxons simply do not help ...)

    Bear and says "And what to do with you" Obama "I can bend down" Bear "Let's bend over"
    Obama returns home, combing the ass, takes the plastit and re-establishes itself to the den, lays back in it, undermines and again the cotton on the shoulder turns around.
    Mishka asks "Do you want" Obama "What is the last time"
    Returns very angry and thinks "Why go to the forest, Mishka will catch again, I'd better send the UAV"
    Obama went to the command post, entered the data, only press the fire button, clap on the shoulder.

    It is beneficial for us that disparate countries on other continents unite in alliances: economic and military. So we will beat the United States from influence in these regions. But the United States, on the contrary, only needs to divide the countries into small federations, they think it's easier to manage them. But, the trend recently, it is such that our model wins, and the USA and its allies are raging.
