The bastards never stop
Rummy is in South America, scouting out the territory for Bush War IV or V.
Speaking in Paraguay, a close US ally, he asked South American nations to take a multi-lateral approach to the issue.By unhelpful, he means that Castro and Chavez are looking to help the people of Bolivia, and not to help the U.S. steal Bolivia's natural gas and other resources. The people of South America know all to well what cooperating with the US means--misery and poverty. Chavez is showing them another way. Rummy is old and stupid, and only the South American nations still run by corrupt oligarchs, like Paraguay, will listen to him.
[Rummy] said there was evidence that both Cuba and Venezuela had been "involved in the situation in Bolivia in unhelpful ways".
He did not give more details.
