239. Bush's ambassadors were truly destructive people, all over Latin America.
They caused problems for their leftist host Presidents, made public statements ridiculing and contradicting them, got funding for opposition groups working to destabilize their elected Presidents, met with provocateurs, and clearly, in Venezuela, conspired with coup plotters and supporters, etc., and in general behaved in ways one would NEVER expect to see any ambassador anywhere conduct him/herself.

You saw the evidence, no doubt, of the havoc that followed Bush when he made his sweep through Latin America, trying to badger the Presidents into isolating and shunning Hugo Chavez. He was met with resistance in each location, and the people themselves poured into the streets bearing signs telling him to go home, he wasn't invited, in Spanish, "Fuera, Bush" and "Fora, Bush" in Brazil. Those photos didn't get broadcast by our own corporate media tv news shows, not splashed across our newspapers. They can be seen if people go to google images and do a search for Fuera Bush or Fora Bush. Clearly that story was suppressed. People just didn't hear about it here. Perception molding has been in effect for many years, unfortunately.

Thank you for any and all of your comments here. I always am so glad to see your posts any time you've posted. There is absolutely nothing whatsoever which comes close to your impeccable, honest, very intelligent remarks about what you have witnessed yourself.

Hoping we'll all be able to share some very good news this year, after the nightmare of the previous 8. Hoping this is the year we'll finally turn this horrendous tale of exploitation and horrendous abuse around and create a policy, a new history which doesn't dishonor any of us any longer.
