Bolivia and Cuba, together in their struggle for independence and Latin American integration, are todays constant targets of media campaigns and subversive actions by the United States, whose regime has given more than enough evidence that it has both countries in its sinister sights. It is no coincidence that this very week, the South American and Caribbean nations have been denounced in reports or included in arbitrary and unilateral lists made by Washington. These documents nobody believes in serve wicked purposes and claim to justify the U.S. aggressive actions against La Paz and Havana. Obamas administration, in an unfounded and malicious report by the U.S. drug czar, pointed to Bolivia as the third largest coca leaf producer in the world, beating Colombia and other states in cocaine production. The response from President Evo Morales government was immediate, describing the U.S. text as malicious, full of clear political aims and out of touch with reality. It is well-known that Washington uses this topic to constantly attack Morales presidency, to damage Bolivias current efforts in the comprehensive struggle against drug trafficking and to justify in this way its known subversive actions against this Andean country. The real American intention is to maintain a war of attrition to ruin the Bolivian president, who clearly is not the White Houses cup of tea due to his posture in favor of anti-imperialism and the unity of Latin America. In the case of Cuba, a burr under the saddle of successive American administrations, Obamas regime this week resorted again to its worn out and deceitful exercise of including the largest island of the Antilles on the list of "State Sponsors of Terrorism." It is no secret that Washingtons real aim is to cover up its ruined and condemned aggressive policies against Cuba and the criminal economic, commercial and financial blockade that has been imposed on the people of the Caribbean island for more than five decades and which has intensified sharply in recent years. The new demonstration of the endemic paranoia suffered by the U.S. in connection with Cuba was answered immediately by the Antillean nations Ministry of Foreign Affairs, which accused the U.S. government of being the first sponsor of world terrorism and of using state terrorism as a political weapon. The behavior adopted by Bolivia and Cuba, as well as by other countries from the region such as Venezuela, Ecuador, Nicaragua and Argentina, which have stopped being Washingtons backyard once and for all, annoys increasingly the decadent empire, which tries hard to impede at any cost the permanent Latin American independence and integration.
Supercapitalism at work.
