Argentina OKs Russian Bases

00 A los heroes de Malvinas. 06.12

______________________________

Argentina, the second-largest country in South America, agreed to allow Russian military bases on its territory. Whilst the USA and the whole world were fixated on the events taking place in the Ukraine, Russia stepped up its diplomatic efforts in the Western Hemisphere. President Putin discussed the idea of ​​military bases in South America with Defence Minister S K Shoigu in February. Russia is considering establishing military bases in Cuba, Nicaragua, Venezuela, and Argentina. In recent years, all these countries were active Russian allies. Argentina’s OK to Russian military bases seriously strengthens Moscow’s position in South America. According to the publication Guardian Liberty Voice, the USA actually slept through the appearance of Russian military bases. A Russian military presence in the Western Hemisphere confronts the USA with a difficult task and marks a reduction in Washington’s influence. The USA has never had sufficient funds for missile defence along its southern borders.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad Seeks Support in Latin America

Shudder! Here come the Iranians! Let me ask you a question… who has killed more civilians throughout the world with its armed forces, the USA or Iran? The shoe pinches, doesn’t it?

______________________________

On Sunday, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad started a four-nation Latin American tour with a visit to Venezuela as part of an effort to win support in the region. On Monday, Ahmadinejad, accompanied by several key ministers, expects to meet with Venezuelan President Hugo Rafael Chávez Frías to discuss bilateral relations and prospective trade deals. He will travel to Nicaragua on 10 January to attend the inauguration of newly re-elected President José Daniel Ortega Saavedra and wrap up his five-day tour with visits to Cuba and Ecuador. Experts believe that improving ties with leftist regimes in Latin America becomes vitally important for Tehran as the global community gradually increases its pressure on Iran over the country’s controversial nuclear program.

Western powers and Israel suspect Iran of seeking to build nuclear weapons. Iran denies this, saying its programme is civilian in nature. US State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland told reporters last week, “As the regime feels increasing pressure, it is desperate for friends and flailing around in interesting places to find new friends”. Tensions between Iran and the West escalated in the past few weeks, as Tehran threatened to stop oil supplies passing through the Strait of Hormuz should economic sanctions limit or prevent Iranian oil exports. On Sunday, US Defence Secretary Leon Panetta warned Iran that any attempt to carry out its threat would draw an immediate US military response.

Editor’s Note:

The US State Department lies to you when it says that Iran’s isolated internationally. Rather, the USA and its allies, including Israel, demonise Iran. The USA hasn’t forgiven Iran for the Iran Hostage Crisis of a generation ago. Iran has never kissed the Americans’ arse for that, and Washington has had its nose out of joint about Iran ever since. Besides, Iran believes that it doesn’t have to listen to Western diktats, and that’s just impossible on their part!

Let’s be frank… Russia and China have given Iran implicit guarantees. If the USA or Israel were to attack Iran, it would be “penny-wise and pound-foolish”. That is, they MIGHT delay an Iranian bomb for a year or two, whilst the USA would muck up its relations with the Muslim “street” permanently, and such a strike would force Russia and China into an intimate alliance for at least the next generation. On top of that, it could cause enharmonic dissonance within NATO, creating a double bind that could weaken, if not destroy, it.

You’re not hearing this in the mainstream media because of the strength of the Israel Lobby. I’m no anti-Semite (indeed, I stand four-square against such), but anyone who doesn’t acknowledge that there’s such a thing as the Israel Lobby doesn’t have a brain. We’ve already paid dearly for its existence (there would have been no 9/11 had we ignored the Israel Lobby)… what more shall it take for us to throw it into the outer darkness? Standing against the Israel Lobby and advocating anti-Semitism are two different things. I’m for the former and I oppose the latter… any questions?
