Disguised US Military Bases

The United States continues its struggle to create indirectly the division among our Latin American nations.
Based on old stereotypes of an allegedly help in relation to local problems that are of great interest for Latin American governments, the Unites States applies the overused slogans to disguise the true intentions of the US Pentagon: To destabilize Latin American progressive governments.
The Argentine State Department and the Ministry of Defence called off the project that Argentinean governor Jorge Capitanich from the Chaco region had signed with the US military and diplomatic representatives in the past.
The aforementioned project had been presented publicly as a centre for humanitarian aid that was allegedly aimed at facing the natural disasters or epidemics. Besides, two buildings were financed by the US South Command and built it at the chosen site.
Their inauguration had been planned to take place by the end of May, but it had the wide rejection from the Chaco’s population in relation to the opening of an undercover military base that was aimed at controlling the local and strategic natural resources. The same idea seems to having influenced the discreet and firm action varied out by Cristina Fernández de Kirchner´s government.
Nevertheless, it was not a coincidence that the South command of the United States’ Arm Forces built and inaugurated in Chile on April 5th the Aguayo Fort which is a new military base that had been devised to train the Latin American mainland’s repressive forces for the allegedly urban warfare according to the White House’s counterinsurgency doctrines carried out by the CIA and the Pentagon.
The aforementioned military base was inaugurated by the US ambassador, Alejandro Wolff, and representatives of the Chilean Armed Forces.
This new type of School for the Americas coincides with the strategic actions planned to be carried out against the progressive governments from South America.
Chilean Political and social leaders pointed out that the so-called” humanitarian aid’s protocols” that have come from the United States have never been free from lots of criticism, especially due to their bad work shown in Haiti.
Branches that belong to the South Commando include the Western Hemispheric Institute for the Cooperation in Security issues and the former School for the Americas given that it is considered that people like dictators like Manuel Noriega from Panama, Hugo Banzer from Bolivia and Manuel Contreras, who was the former chief of the DNA during the Augusto Pinochet´s dictatorship, among other criminals, were trained there. Therefore, it is worth guessing the United States´ real intentions while it is financing the training-military bases in some nations.
During his recent tour through some Latin American nations, the Pentagon’s chief, León Panetta, talked about the fight against the drugs bands and criticized Venezuela in his press conferences by making reference to the United States’ concern because of Venezuela’s buying of weaponry in nations such as Russia and China.
The analysts point out that it is completely natural the Venezuelan rearmament given the Unites States’ wars for oil. Besides, the Venezuelan government will realize sooner that later that the United States could attack directly or through a nation used as an international pretext against it. By Ariel Larramendi
