The New World's Order?















Medvedev is taking a week long trip to Latin america and this includes stops to Venezuela and Cuba. One has to wonder about the latest communist visits to the New World. Is it an effort to undermine the United States both politically and economically or is it just good business and international relations? It is not above the communists to play tit for tat, regarding our support for Taiwan, Tibet, Georgia, and former Eastern Block countries. Look for Hu and Medvedev, who is just the more pleasant veneer for for Vlad the Impaler to encroach on our hemisphere, challenging the Monroe Doctrine and the Roosevelt Corollary. With Obama as president, they probably see an pening for such action, which would have been ill advised while GW was in office. It's going to get interesting. 

Thank you for reading this blog.

Well, since Bush pretty much left Latin America out of his agenda after 9-11, Russia is seizing (did I spell that one right?) the opportunity... After all, there are some "bolivarian" governments that don't like Bush too much...
Maybe Obama can change that...

Bush made a few mistakes period. Making sure your back door is secure is one of them. If it were me, I am not motivated by people liking me, but I also do not think there should be unwarranted dissension. America has made a few mistake with regards to latin america in the last 50 years. It's one thing to be against socialism and communism, which I am, but it's another thing to support despots that pretend to be capitalist to gain favor. I wouldn't do it. Obama may open a dialogue with these countries, but I do not think much will change for them overall.
