US military presence a threat in SouthAm
Colombia: Venezuelan Deputy Israel Sotillo stated in this capital
that the United States manage the Colombian policy, what is a serious
danger, and exemplified what happened in Afghanistan, Somalia, Dominican
Republic, and Panama with direct interventions.
Sotillo talked Cambio newspaper of the recent military agreement
inked between the northern power and the South American country, as part
of an empire attack, so which regional peoples should be united.
"Sooner or later Colombia is going to give a gasp of full liberation
and join to this progressive movement," he said.
The presence of the Venezuelan deputy in Bolivia responds a
government's initiative to explain the accord signed between Bogota and
Washington, through which the US State could use seven military bases in
Colombian territory. Sotillo recalled that in the recent summit of the
Union of South American States, held in the Argentinean city of
Bariloche, statesmen from that integrationist bloc stated that this
action could threaten sovereignty and integrity of South American
This is a way to weaken progressive governments, but while having
people's support, it will be impossible to oust Bolivia's President Evo
Morales, Ecuador's Rafael Correa, or Venezuela's Hugo Chavez.
