Ollante Humala , Person of the Week —  elected  president of Peru — and ostensibly his election presents for the Obama Administration yet another failure of American foreign Policy in the Latin region… 

It has been suggested before on this page and elsewhere that  American foreign policy in many respects is in disarray, and that vis-a-vis Mexico, specifically, and Latin America, in general, the United States of America is losing ground not only to narco terrorists, but to  the influence of Brazil, Russia, India, China, Venezuela, Argentina, Bolivia and Nicaragua.

Now another Latin American country turns sharply left — in the mold of Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez and Bolivia’s Evo Morales?

Potpourri Pan America: “moderate” ElBaradei now more “immoderate”; and finally, concern about Iran-Venezuela – really!!! And more…


 PONDER THIS:

1.  Another little friend from South America gets irked     — after all the visits by the president and the Secretary of State, who are America’s friends in Latin America, really?

2.  Wasn’t “moderate” Arab ElBaradei supposed to be Pres. Obama’s boy in Egypt?   — either the  Muslim Brotherhood or El Qaeda or a combination could be problematic in Egypt…  Another “Shah booted out of  Iran” situation?  Hopefully not…

3.  KSM to be tried by military tribunal  — Whoa, Mr. Holder (KSM is not a Dutch airline) — are you simply playing politics?!  Think things through, why don’t you…  Or are you the fall guy for those above you?

4.  The federales of socialist Nicaragua say “nyet” to popular demonstrations — Daniel Ortega, friend of the people!?  Heck, when will people learn: boot out the supposed dictators only to install another one…  Who are the federales?!

5.  Is America on the verge of giving weapons to its enemies in Libya?   — that’s the rumor…  Another failure of foreign policy for the Obama Administration?… 

6.  Concern over Iran-Venezuela connection expressed — oh really!!!  Here and in many other places that concern has been continually expressed!!!  Give America a friggin’ break!!!

PREVIOUS:

  Iraq not yet settled but send   the weary military and stressed, expensive weaponry  into another war?  Are reasons given consistent or factual , or is Obama acting like a  Bush-Lite simply the start of campaign 2012?  His military leadership skills were reportedly viewed by the American public as almost wholly lacking recently — more macho image needed, so send in the military as a military tool, maybe!  Not comfortable here about the president’s decisions and the process of getting there…

  Will this policy encourage illegal immigration? —   the president simply does  not seem to want to seal the U.S. border…  “Come on up, we’d love to have you”?

  What would the news media say if Bush were still president?!  —  but  probably they will say it’s still Bush’s  fault…  Rolling Stone stories roll right along…

  Look out, Arab end time is near? — what’s with Iran and the clergy! 

  President Obama “just” returned from South America and Hugo Chavez nonetheless is being “awarded” there. —  will Venezuela be bombed next?  It “is” the beginning of election season…

Potpourri Pan America: from Obama’s redistribution of wealth ideology, to Iran meddling in Latin America; and to laying the groundwork for Election 2012?, and more…


PONDER THIS:

1.  “The drug war at our doorstep”  — Video/news article about the problems in Mexico…  If not at the doorstep, at least at the next door neighbor’s.

2..  American Neighbor, Guatemala, another failed state: anybody watching? — any government department checking this out?

3.    Waivers upon waivers by the U.S. Department of health and Human Services   — anybody you know cheering the Healthcare Law?!  Was this just another attempt at Redistribution of Wealth?

4.  Janet Napolitano didn’t even want to demonstrate the scanner — on herself, because it violated her privacy?  Is the TSA really handling security in the best possible manner?

5.  Smuggling tunnels, not in the Middle East, in Southern California ! — keep your eye on the ground… and on the air and all around…

6.  Iran, Venezuela and Nicaragua building a new trans isthmus canal? — has anyone noticed and are Costa Rican rights being protected?

7.    Dream Act in New England?  — will this Bill pass in the lame duck Congress as Pelosi and Obama have  indicated they desire?…  Is this just another attempt to expand and solidify Democratic support among Latinos, heading to the 2012 elections?

8.  From the time Pres. Obama took office, have our troops been dying in vain? — who is speaking up for them?  Just askin’…
